We thought we were in GOMA when we visited the art gallery. Not at all what we expected. We thought the exhibits were better suited to GOMA.

We took advantage of the guided 40 min tour. Excellent to learn about indigenous art and the stories behind it. A welcome restorative experience after noisy city hubbub. Beautifully laid out. I loved the Japanese artist’s ‘Narcissus’. It was fun and contemplative as well.
