Overview

The Kunsthaus Graz opened its doors in 2003, the architectural piece de resistance of Graz's year as European Capital of Culture. The biomorphous building designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier-known locally as the Friendly Alien-has since become an attraction for art lovers and the culturally minded from all over the world. But it has also become an essential landmark in the urban identity of the city of Graz. As an exhibition centre for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media facade-designed by Berlin designers realities:united-constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology. Effectively a large screen in the middle of the city, it acts as an instrument of art communication.

We adore much contemporary and modern art, but this was disappointing. Too much shop/café focus, not so good on the art, whatever your taste.

Exhibits are sparse and odd. Architecture is interesting and the only redeeming quality. Observation deck on top floor was baking hot due to broken AC

Great museum, that sticks out from the usual neighborhood architecture. It contains several floors that you can explore, library as well as a gift shop to pick up a souvenir or two.

Was very disappointed. Essentially there are two floors with one currently dedicated to donated chairs from VIP's. The second is dedicated to the building. The sense once you go up stairs is that they are playing a joke on you. The feeling by the time...More

In a town that’s full of old and beautiful architecture, this without doubt stands out a mile. We did not have time to venture inside but it’s such a fun and quirky building that adds character to the skyline. Climb up the hill for a...More
