What Visitors Say About Museum für Moderne Kunst
The museum of modern art consists of three different buildings and I only had time to go to the main building. Soon I would like to visit the MMK Zollamt and MMK Tower too because this museum is awesome. The exhibition Crip Time was beautifully curated and touched me on many levels. Several floors on issues around bodily disfunctionalities expressed in contemporary art really invite the visitors to think about the issues from new perspectives. You should plan for two hours because there is a lot to explore..
