Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, architects, won a bet when building this incredible building in an historical environment. The site is breathtaking from the ground and hilarious from Gösting castle height

This monstrosity of a building...it looks like a giant black alien beetle that is about to eat the beautiful old town of Graz. What were they thinking to allow this UGLY thing to spoil the site??? I am from New York City...and glad its not here! There wasn't much inside...a small exhibit of works by James Benning.

It is said that it is a place for arts but I did not find any. There was a café inside and that was all (which was expensive).

We didn't go inside but Kunsthaus is great to look at from the outside especially from above on the hill. The design is great and well worth looking at.

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
