One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič. Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists. The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the Works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean- Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher. A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

For those who like modern art, this is an amazing place to be. I loved it. Go in the daytime, as there are things to see outside of the museum, under an open sky, which you won`t see in the darkness so well (even though the monuments and art pieces are lighted). We spent 1.5 hrs there and did not... More

It's a bit of an expedition from the city centre but going out on the number 90 bus is part of the experience and a change from the sights in the Old Town. The space is superb and the site on the edge of the Danube is interesting in itself. The cafe is spacious but at the time of our... More

We drove from Bratislava for a day trip to the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, which is in a super-looking modern building surrounded by a sculpture garden and built on its own island in the Danube river. The spaces are nice to explore at a leisurely pace. Exhibitions were great and included several Slovak artists among modern painters and sculptors from... More

Excellent small, modern art gallery with a relatively extensive collection. The building and surrounding area is beautiful, highly recommended in god weather, as part of a cycling tour. A must see for appreciators of art.

On this trip, I have been to Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Helsinki. The Danubiana is the standout of this trip. I can't even imagine how wonderful it is in the summer. They staff is excellent too, so helpful!

If you are into modern art, this is the place to go. We had a car and drove down and there was plenty of parking. This was the only museum open on the Bank Holiday and we thought it would be heaving but it was not - hurrah! We spent a good 2 hours touring the museum and special Miro/Cobra... More
