Nice building but had very view exhibits and exhibitions. I was dissapointed. the ticket fee was too high.
I know they call it the "friendly alien", but I think it kind of looks like a slug. Not really my cup of tea but while in Graz it seemed silly not to visit. I am not a fan of modern art, so the exhibitions did not thrill and neither does the architecture. It certainly stands out though, you can't... More
How can you not venture into this "obvious" and strange building! If it's winter, there's a great (but not cheap) cafe. There's an interesting (but not cheap) gift shop. . . and the museum itself-- well, not cheap, but if you have the time and are in the mood for modern and contemporary art, go for it!
Being interested in modern architecture this museum was a must. The exhibition on Cultural buildings from Bilbao to Zeche Zollverein was organised very well, visitors got iPads with additional information about the exhibits. The museum was not very crowded on a rainy Sunday morning.

amazing architectural masterpiece that blends into with the city fabric, while retaining its own character that defines contemporary architecture today.
But a bunch of rooms with white squares hanging on black drapes didn't seem like art to me. I think one of the benches I was going to put my foot on to tie my shoe was a piece of art. Anyhow, maybe I'm just one of those people who weren't meant to 'get it'. The miniature exhibits of all... More
I'm sorry but this building represents all the arrogance of modern architects and in spades. It might fit in an industrial estate where it could be dismantled after the latest vacuous Festival/Year of Culture but in the centre of Graz it is an affront to this charming Italianate city. Some will claim to appreciate it's gimmicky appeal but believe me,... More
