Found MOCA really interesting with many paintings, sculptures and other exhibits. The MOCA is relatively nice size. You can go through it in about 2 hours I think. I think easiest way to get there is by Bus.

A please try visit to outstanding building with spacious, serene exhibition halls. Still, paintings and sculptures exhibited are far from contemporary in western sense: it is just modern art. Some painters seemed largely overrepresented, and couple of rooms suddenly reveled a collection of third rate...More
