About
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!

Danubiana is great gallery with wide art collection donated by Dutch phillantrope. It is especially worth taking a boat trip from Bratislava downtown to Danubiana. Boat ride takes around 1hour one way and entire visit can be organized in half day

The combination of the Danube with the inspired design of the Museum building made for a delightful afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor sculpture and the wonderful views from inside and outside of the river. Cafe is a very pleasant way to end a visit.

We rode there as part of a bicycle trip. It has a nice cafe where you can have coffee and cake overlooking the River. Fairly limited collection but some good peices. Definitely worth an hour or two.

Today I visited the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum which is a direct 35 minute trip outside of Bratislava via Bus 90. This bus can be caught outside the front of the Sheraton Hotel, you will need to buy a separate return ticket from the ticket machine (about 200 meters from where you catch the bus) as there is no ticket machine at the Museum. This is one of the very best Art Museums I have seen and I especially enjoyed the outdoor / garden installations. Don’t miss this special treat when you visit Bratislava which reminds me a little of MONA in Tasmania, Australia.

Very cool place to visit also with kids. Nicely situated at the river. Great to walk around and sit at the cafe. Is worth the travel. Easy bus ride from Eurovia.

Getting here is no small feat; I recommend using the Bratislava bus app to coordinate the three busses you need to take to get here from Old Town. But what a cool place! An eclectic assortment of modern art, mostly Slovakian, all housed in and around a museum right on the Danube. There's a kayak training center nearby where you can watch kayakers run a fast water course diverted from the Danube.
