One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič. Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists. The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the Works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean- Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher. A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

This is a hidden gem about 30 mins by bus from Bratislava town centre. There is now a number 90 bus that goes direct to the gallery. Go to the Sheraton Hotel.

That gallery of contemporary art is on a perfect place, looks like the building floats on the water. Art inside and also around the gallery.

Not being your typical gallery with boring pictures, there are various types of art - paintings and 3D, moving or static, both inside and outside. It's well worth the visit, costs some 10eur for an adult. Highly recommended! There's plenty of parking space. There's a cafe inside with drinks/food. It also offers great views over the dam and ships going... More

This museum is in a beautiful setting along the water with a great collection of modern art from all over the world. It's quite far from the old city but well worth the effort to get here.

For those who like modern art, this is an amazing place to be. I loved it. Go in the daytime, as there are things to see outside of the museum, under an open sky, which you won`t see in the darkness so well (even though the monuments and art pieces are lighted). We spent 1.5 hrs there and did not... More

It's a bit of an expedition from the city centre but going out on the number 90 bus is part of the experience and a change from the sights in the Old Town. The space is superb and the site on the edge of the Danube is interesting in itself. The cafe is spacious but at the time of our... More
