  • Cool architecture. Interesting permanent collection arranged unlike any museum I’ve previously visited. Consistently hosts exhibitions worth seeing. The entry procedure, though, is absurd. Really complicated — and annoying — just to buy a ticket. Gift shop is worth visiting. To be honest, it seems like a museum that could be amazing if they could figure out some things: they don’t do enough to orient you to the space. I imagine some people go to the museum without even seeing the exhibitions on the lower level because you don’t know they exist unless you know they exist.
  • Very nice museum. The best part of the museum is the top and common level. The paintings are all faced one way and the artists name is on the back. It's cool to try to guess the name of the paintings after looking at the painting. Also interesting to see how they stuck the paintings to the glass
