Still worth a visit but not a must visit!

I enjoyed all day yesterday walking the streets of Bologna and visiting every church we saw. Where did yesterday go? This is our 5th day of 8 days doing Bologna. Today we decided... read more

I would have given this place 5 stars, but apart from the extrememly polite young man on the front desk and the gentleman upstairs who helped my wife, who was in a wheelchair, up the stairlift, the staff here were tge rudest people we have met in this wonferful city. Please don't let this put you off, the museum is... More

I enjoyed all day yesterday walking the streets of Bologna and visiting every church we saw. Where did yesterday go? This is our 5th day of 8 days doing Bologna. Today we decided on MAMbo (€4 each for seniors). We do make it our mission to visit every modern museum in every major city to enjoy the best modern artists... More

Unfortunately very disappointed. Limited exhibits, and pretty low calibre. Only saving grace it was free. Pop in if your passing, otherwise don't bother.

The Morandi section is incomparable. The special exhibit of Berlin artist Jonas Burgert was astonishing and very well displayed. The museum space is beautiful. But the permanent collection only offered a few memorable features.

Bologna is a fantastic city and some of the stuuf in MAMbo is good, but the majority is unispiring and the whole experience is spoiled by (apart from the girls on the ticket desk) the most unwelcoming staff I have ever had the displeasure experience in a public attraction. Because of the attitude of the staff I would advise people... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the setup and the exhibit. Superb few works of the "last naturalists". Exhaustive foray into Morandi's works, a must for the lovers of the maestro. Perfect set-up for a small, but worthy art collection.

For those interested in modern art this is well worth the walk to get there. Entry is free with the Bologna Welcome Card. Incorporated in the building is the Morandi Museum so it is good value for money.

Made a point of visiting here when the David Bowie retrospective exhibition was on. A short distance from the railway station this was a great building/location for such. Walking from the centre of town to reach it enabled me to discover a wide variety of shops and bars. Exhibition was fantastic.

I was really surprised how good this museum was. They have an excellent selection of Transavantgarde and Arte Povera works. The Giorgio Morandi's are great to see his development and rigour as an artist. I was there for an hour but could easily stayed much longer. Excellent bar/cafe and shop too.

Doesn't take long to see it all and the Morandi works are interesting. Good for a relaxing hour or so.
