A lovely building and a great location. Lots of activity areas if you want to try your hand a watercolour. A really interesting gallery to inspire you showing a wide range of approaches to watercolour.

Thank you for your review Guillaume! Exhibitions do vary a lot since we´re an contemporary art museum, but I'm glad that you recommend Vatten Restaurant & Café! Be sure to let us know if there´s anything the museum can improve for our visitors.
