Great building

The building is great, modern architecture that I like very much. Its cold outside and Inside too but with some expositions you can feel much wormer.

A good range of challenging contemporary art. It's right next to the Oscar Schindler Factory museum, so worth getting a joint ticket for the two museums.

This place is well worth a visit. I wish I could've spent longer here. On the surface (in terms of service and the exterior), it appears quite daunting, but the art that is housed with in it is really so refreshing and unpretentious! All museums and art galleries should be aspiring to be like this one. Favourite was the MOCAK... More

Good contemporary art museum, interesting topics and it changes very fast the installations. Both, collection and building are a must see in this city.

A lot of art, some very mesmerizing. You need at least 2 or three hours if you want to see everything and take time to soak everything in. I would reccomend if you love contemporary art and have enough time on your hands.

Whether it is art or not lies in the eye of each individual. Some of the works were a touch too modern or abstract for my taste. Nevertheless it was a very nice experience and it made me think an reevaluate ideas and concepts. A must see in Krakow. (For those with doubts: In the museum next door (Schindler's factory)... More

Bought a ticket to Schindler's museum and got this visit at a discounted rate. Lovely building with varied exhibitions, even though not a fan of contemporary art, I enjoyed it.

Mocak is Krakow's Contemporary Art Museum, a short tram ride from the Old Town and a couple of minutes' walk from the Plac Bohaterow Getta, a square commemorating the Krakow Ghetto. The walk to the Museum led us through a street called Kacik (little corner), quiet and atmospheric, leading to what looked like a small overgrown wasteland. In the midst... More
