Bratislava’s newest major museum opened in September 2000, at a dramatic site on a peninsula jutting out into the Danube River, about 15 kilometres south of the city centre. The Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum is named after the river that surrounds it, and its sponsor, the Dutch collector and art patron Gerard H. Meulensteen.
The museum itself is housed in an impressive building intended to evoke the shape of a Roman galley bound in the shallows of a river. It hosts shows by leading international artists, which alternate in the great hall on the first floor; on the ground floor there is a museum of contemporary art and in the grounds is an 8,000 square-metre park where a range of sculpture work is presented.
You can get to the museum directly by bus number 90 from the Nové SND (the new building of the Slovak national Theater – the stop behind the Nové SND building.
