Great exhibition for adults and kids alike. Swarovski rebuilt the facilities over the last 10 years and invested a lot. The results are fantastic: multiple iconic artworks from Nikki de Saint Phalle to Yoyai Kusama, paired with interactive rooms that blend art and play. The gardens are stunning and the kids loved the play tower, maze and carousel.

I love it, the city is small so this is the way to enjoy it to the fullest, very easy to use and of course it is worth it

It’s a wonder museum to visit. It could be better if there is a more definitive description of the meeting location.

It was a very successful trip, the crystal worlds were fascinating. The transport worked wonderfully.

An amazing roster of prolific artists in a surprisingly touching exhibition.
