Hier kun je wel een paar uur doorbrengen. Wat een mooie collectie en wat goed en ruim opgezet. Je leert er anders naar kunst kijken. more »Here you can spend a few hours. What a nice collection and some good and spacious set up. You will learn to look at art differently.
I liked the shapes of the museum which seemed to be designed to get as much as sunlight. However the museum is not well managed in the perspective of user friendliness. There are no arrows or guidances telling visitors where to see next. Some pictures are described in German only, and even some pictures don’t have their name tag. There is an audio guide, but neither any staff told me nor any signs informed that.
The museum is really pedagogic with a lot of texts giving some art history insights which can appreciated by some. But what I truly disliked is the strong presence of the guard, making me feel tracked everywhere i went. I don’t know if my profile is discriminated but they should do an effort to make it more welcoming in the future.
