Activity Overview

More than just a place to lay your head, the 21c Museum Hotel Art Gallery contains 90 guest rooms, a contemporary art museum, a renowned restaurant, and a civic center.

Featuring commissioned installations as well as permanent and temporary modern art exhibits, the art museum displays works by both recognized, international artists and those who are up and coming.

One will find pieces not only hung on the walls but in some unusual places throughout the hotel such as the sidewalks and the elevators.

Additional goings on at the establishment include yoga classes, concerts, poetry reading and other special events that are often free and open to the public.

Things to Do

  • Admire the convertible car covered in mirrors that is the exhibit Blind Spot: The Customized Art Car.
  • Inspect the commissioned Wallpaper display which shows a landscape scene made from fluorescent ink and dyes.
  • Have fun with the installation Text Rain in which guests can make letters rise and fall by moving their body parts in front of a mirrored, black and white video projection of themselves that is merged with colorful, movable letters that ultimately form lines of a poem.
