In this ground-floor gallery, wonderfully thought out exhibitions conceived by top artists and designers introduce children to interesting aspects of modern art, design and architecture. Kids are kept enthralled with interactive elements and the opportunity to touch.

There are also hands-on workshops for six- to 12-year-olds, and family workshops one Sunday afternoon a month. Audio guides for six- to 12-year-olds can also be hired for €4. Outside, look for the colourful Stravinsky fountain on the south side, designed by Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely.
