This art museum seems to have changing exhibits. Entrance to most of it was fee of charge. Our favourite place was an art room where you could take a break, and create your own piece of art. There is a great view of Dortmund from...More

A place where you can see some work from independent artists and students. Some exhibitions are free, for some you have to pay. Nice view of the city from the top of the building.

We visited the exposition of Nike de Saint Phale. On the top Floor of this new culturele center. This is a huge building with different museums. The atmosphere is very unpersonal. You don't feel wellcome in this place. It feels as a government office.
