I'd have to agree with Paige N's review that while this really is an arresting sight when seen from the castle ramparts high above, up close this dramatic arts centre (it does look like a friendly slug) is harder to visualise as it is boxed in by other buildings and its own carpark and the interior, while perfectly pleasant and...

There is no doubt that the architecture of this building is exquisite, however I found the exterior much more impressive than the exhibits showcased inside. The installations were nice, average. Not a very large museum, you can easily tackle everything within a couple hours. It does offer a great view from the top floor, but once again, if you are... More

EmeraldDiva got it right with the slug instead of an a alien. This building is striking all right but when you've said that, you've just about said it all. I thoroughly believe that to a considerable degree, form should follow function. Which does not rule out fantasy and creativity in doing so. But in the case of the Kunsthaus, the... More

A very interesting museum in the hart of Graz. Contemporary arts is not a thing everyone likes, however if you are into that then Kunsthaus is a must see place.

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.

The building is an atraction itself. It is really very beautiful and can be easilly reached from Graz city center (5 minutes walk). There are also trams and bus stops right in front of. When I was visiting only one exibition was open, so I took less than one our to visit. The museum is related to modern art (including... More

I love this museum for its amazing architecture and its high-quality exhibits, always with interesting, progressive content. Go to their website and watch the movie on the original design and development of the building ("A friendly alien"), a great piece of modern architecture. http://www.museum-joanneum.at/de/kunsthaus/das-gebaeude/film-kunsthaus-graz-bix
