Located right on the Danube, you can walk around outside to enjoy the view after seeing some modern art in a new building, adjacent to a huge concert hall. Lovers of modern/contemporary art will be happy.

hidden within the National Theater building without any signs this museum is here. Only a few exhibits available, and not particularly worth the effort.
