Overview
More
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!

This museum is the most amazing venue built in post Communist Bratislava. A well designed building hugging the Danube with a magnificent sculpture garden, similar to the Louisiana Museum in Copenhagen. The exhibit offers a truly panoramic sample of contemporary Slovak art in well designed...More

Really love this museum. Anyone who love Picasso would love the collections there. The ride is not very scenic but totally worth it. Here is a photo indicating the location of bus stop for bus 90.

Here we got a good chance to view the art pieces. The art is beautiful and so is the surrounding area. The modern art on display is quite fascinating. I enjoyed walking in the old and the new Denube as well.

Super nice location on the banks of Danube, a bit far from center but reachable by public transport. Worth a visit for an idea about Slovak modern art and a few European interesting exhibits.
