Anthropocene was awesome!
Oct 2019
We took a cab out to the MAST since it was pouring rain but took a bus back (E2) into town. the huge photos (mostly aerial) of the environmental devastation that humans have created on the planet are phenomenal. The walkway up to the entry captures your attention at the outset. We got caught up in the first exhibits which were science related and interactive. Then went on to the Anthropocene exhibition. Definitely worthwhile that short trip out, although the signage for finding the actual building is poor.

Wonderful Visit to Anthropecene
Aug 2019
From start to finish, this was a great visit. We were met off the yellow line bus and given our own age appropriate tour of the excellent exhibition on man’s affect on the world. Our boys enjoyed all the interactive elements such as making fish for the collage and manufacturing games. And it’s all free, including complementary drinks at the cafe. Fantastic.

Hidden gem easily accesible via bus
Jul 2019 • Couples
We went there when we had an afternoon to spare. It was easy to get there via bus, and oh my was it worth the trip. There was no admission, the house itself is spectacular, and the current exhibition (I think there is no permanent one) was really incredible.

We couldn't figure out how the cafe work though, other than that i couldn't be more pleased.

Interactive kid-friendly and free
Jun 2019 • Family
Spent 4 hours with our 6yr old son at the MAST and he wanted to go back the next day! Signed up for a kid’s workshop on photography as well. Couldn’t believe it was free and they even had free coffee and snacks as well in their cafeteria. They had an amazing exhibition Anthropocene on humankind’s influence on the planet. Beautiful modern building. Took a 15min bus ride from the centre of town, pretty easy to get to.

Don’t miss this museum if you visit Bologna. The exhibition Anthropocene, free entry, is astonishing and definitely informative and interesting.

Quite cool art/technology combination
Dec 2018 • Business
Located on the premises of Coesia group, sponsored by the philanthropic owner of the company. Some cool educational exhibits about technology as well as nice photo exhibit by several artists on the topic of people migration. I guess the exhibit changes regularly.

Wonderful Museum
Jun 2018 • Couples
The Mast is a relatively short bus ride from the historic section of Bologna, but well worth the trip. The building is new and beautiful. Currently the museum is showing a wonderful photography exhibit. There are interactive displays that will entrance both adults and children. Admission is free though it would be worth the visit if the cost was comparable to other Bologna museums. Be advised that even though the bus gets you relatively close, it is not that easy to actually find, though it is a large modern building tucked in among some high rise apartment buildings.

Amazing audio-visual art
Apr 2017 • Solo
I had a wonderful visit at Mast, being the only visitor at noon on a week day. I really enjoyed watching all the shorts, particularly the three films by Yuri Ancarani. Some of the films are about 30 minutes long, so you should plan a relaxed visit with nothing to rush to after that. The Mast is a 20-minute bus ride away from Piazza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna and the trip offers a view of the modern livable non-tourist parts of the city which is also a plus.
