  • This place does a really good job going over the life and evolution of Andy Warhol. Each floor has a decade or two of his art and a thorough explanation of his evolution and major facts. You don't have to know anything about Andy Warhol to enjoy it and understand it. On the second floor there is a changing guest artists work. The artist I saw seemed interrelated to Andy Warhol not sure this I'd a requirement but the art definitely reminded me of the art of Andy and i appreciated it.
  • A complete overview of the artist's life, starting from his early amazing works as publicity illustrator. The museum shows also many inspirational objects that are part of a more extended collection conserved in an archive not accessible to the public, and offers workshops for experimenting the graphic techniques invented by Andy Warhol. Wonderfully organized!
