Walking up the avenue towards Villa Grande, on the right side of the building you will see the center's new wing MINO, designed by Transborder Studio. The annex is currently housing the exhibit IN/VISIBLE - Everyday racism in Norway.
As always, you will find our with a path leading to the popular public beach Huk. You are welcome to take a break on the benches by the entrance and in the garden on the back side of the building.
