Overview
More
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!

Very nice museum with broad selection of modern art. We visited this by bicycle from Bratislava. Just follow the south bank of the Donau river in eastern direction (down stream) and cross the dam to the museum.

This is a world class collection of modern art in an extraordinary setting. In addition to noteworthy Slovak artists are established artists like Karel Appel. These are strong, colourful pieces that are very accessible and have broad appeal.

Beautiful. In all perspectives. The stunning location on a peninsula in the Danube river, the building (wonderful architecture), the wide, open spaces, the smell ... the beautiful art and how everything fits together and comes together. This is really great. I am glad that I...More

A fantastic Danube river trip takes you from Bratislava to the Art Museum (approx. 2 hours and 14/18 Euros). The outdoor space and gardens are delightful for eating your own picnic and just enjoying the sunny weather (we were perhaps lucky but it was May!)....More
