The Morandi section is incomparable. The special exhibit of Berlin artist Jonas Burgert was astonishing and very well displayed. The museum space is beautiful. But the permanent collection only offered a few memorable features.

Bologna is a fantastic city and some of the stuuf in MAMbo is good, but the majority is unispiring and the whole experience is spoiled by (apart from the girls on the ticket desk) the most unwelcoming staff I have ever had the displeasure experience in a public attraction. Because of the attitude of the staff I would advise people... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the setup and the exhibit. Superb few works of the "last naturalists". Exhaustive foray into Morandi's works, a must for the lovers of the maestro. Perfect set-up for a small, but worthy art collection.

For those interested in modern art this is well worth the walk to get there. Entry is free with the Bologna Welcome Card. Incorporated in the building is the Morandi Museum so it is good value for money.

Made a point of visiting here when the David Bowie retrospective exhibition was on. A short distance from the railway station this was a great building/location for such. Walking from the centre of town to reach it enabled me to discover a wide variety of shops and bars. Exhibition was fantastic.

I was really surprised how good this museum was. They have an excellent selection of Transavantgarde and Arte Povera works. The Giorgio Morandi's are great to see his development and rigour as an artist. I was there for an hour but could easily stayed much longer. Excellent bar/cafe and shop too.

Doesn't take long to see it all and the Morandi works are interesting. Good for a relaxing hour or so.

Enjoyed the refreshing art but not loud vocal requests not to take pictures. Apparently you can ask for a ticket to take pictures at reception. This is free. Also attendants followed us. Literally, pace by pace.

A good gallery with plenty of varied exhibits. There is also a lovely outside area (although a few too many persons with bottles lurking). A good cafe and shop too.

We went for the exhibition and expected it to be busy and it was. Queue for tickets with exact entry time took as long as over an hour just to get to the front.. Luckily. for us, at the last possible time slot of 22.00, they extended the opening hours by 30mins. The staff were actually all right, despite the... More
