  • Tagged along on a 4th grade field trip. A LOT to see, but the venue is outstanding. Included was a great group activity as well where kids made their own "museum." A great way to introduce a younger generation to art, and for an older generation to stimulate their mind.
  • I mean, it's mostly a modern art museum, so expect some trivial stuff. But overall I enjoyed it a lot, the staff are helpful but serious. The museum itself is very spacious and minimalist, and they bring in new exhibitions all the time. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for something to do for an hour or so. If you're looking to quickly get an idea of the GR culture, however, other places might be more effective.
