A gallery with very little to look at in terms of innovation. Disappointing collection and a very unwelcoming atmosphere compounded by a reception staff where 3 staff failed to respond to our arrival - too busy texting!

The Mambo is quite a walk from central Bologna but we did it because of good reviews and recommendations in the guide book. There is some interesting modern art but felt a bit disappointed as I suppose I was comparing with big galleries like Tate...More

The morandi collection is now here. It's a bit of a walk from the centre but worth it. Go next door to Ex Forno for lunch

I admit to being something of a philistine - I am not, and will probably never be, artistically minded - but do enjoy both classical and modern art. Mambo left me cold, I only visited the permanent exhibitions , featuring the Morandi collections - but...More

I generally agree with the reviews here stating this is rather a 2nd priority museum to visit. Mainly local artists on display.

Not close to anything, the bar/restaurant did not meet expectations, despite the reviews (maybe it was the time of day/season I was there), the gift shop left much to be desired, and thus I didn't even pay the fee to enter the museum.

The museum was free with the student card, and really close to the Train Station. The facilities are great and the exhibition at the moment of our trip was great. Would recommend
