“Excellent Contemporary Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

The Museum of Contemporary Art is a short walk across the river from the Old Town and Wawel Castle area, next to the Schindler's factory museum. It's an impressive space showing some cutting edge art. The "Kunst Macht Frei" sign in one of the galleries is a bit hard to take after visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau. Definitely worth a visit if you are into contemporary art.

“Provocative!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We came here on a Monday and it was closed but the friendly staff said come back tomorrow and it is free!!!!!! but we would have been more than happy to pay the fee as it is worth it. Thought provoking art, many talking points and some of the most surreal pieces we have ever seen. Loved it.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

If you love modern art then you must visit the gallery and its just beside the Oscar Schindler Factory so it's worth doing both. There were some excellent exhibitions on when we visited and I just loved the contemporary feel of the place.
