If you are in Olomouc visiting the Museum of Modern Arts is a must. Personally, I enjoyed the collection of 3rd floor the most where you can find the newest masterpieces. From this floor you can also climb up to the attic and enjoy the sweet view.

This gallery is a hidden gem. We travelled to Olomouc especially to see the Years of Disarray exhibition and were not disappointed. Really interesting to learn that cubism was not just Picasso and Braques. The permanent collection was also great, especially the giant Vasarely 3D art work and his plan to build a new gallery. Sloping flors, ancient wooden beams and an observation tower up a narrow spiral staircase made this a visit to remember.

From Salvador Dali to Andy Warhol, this museum is world class and beautifully laid out. Unlike some dusty old museum, there is a constant traffic of Art and events. I have spent many wonderful hours here poring over the permanent and visiting collections.

The Olomouc Museum of Modern Art is the pale grey art-nouveau building across from the baroque Lady Mary of the Snows church. The permanent collection may not be as outstanding as you might expect for such an important cultural centre, but the temporary exhibitions are often of a very high standard and well worth the low entrance fee.

The sculptural decorations either side of the main entrance are clues to the building's former use as a hospital from the 1200s to 1780s and its later use as an Austrian military prison, hospital and barracks.

The Olomouc MOMA is open year round except on Mondays, is free on Wednesdays and Sundays and free on the same day with any retained ticket from the nearby Archdiocese museum. There’s a small lookout tower at the top which is included in the entry price of the museum.

The biggest attraction of this place is outside - the status of a man hanging from a balcony that from time to time screams some swearing sentences in Czech.
Me and my friend went to the place on Sunday. The entrance was for free. All the ladies, including the one at the cash desk and the other ones at the floor, seemed to be very welcoming. The one at the cash desk spoke English, the rest of them not so much. I think they all wanted to help us and explain something about the exhibitions because we were constantly encountered by them, one gave us some flyers.
The museum has the observatory tower that can be accessed for free, but it's very small so you will be squeezed there with other quests. Another thing is the ventilation in the building. No AC in the building. It was unbearably hot particularly inside of the covered tower.
The exhibitions were interesting so I can definitely recommend the place, especially if you are into art. But it would be also interesting to just sit on the stairs of the church located in front of the museum and watch the hanging guy statue to move and to swear.

The building itself is both interesting and impressive. The top floor exhibition (an overview of 20th century art) was good and very interesting, while we were less impressed by the rest that was on show at the moment

It all depends if you lean more towards Tate Britain or Tate Modern I suppose, but this Museum of Modern Art houses the biggest collection of utterly depressing art I have ever seen collected in one place. The special exhibition of angelic paintings was quite bizarre and included one large canvas with Christ on the cross at the top, a large colourful aeroplane hurtling towards the viewer in the middle, and an angel underneath with all her bits showing gliding along on her back, wings outstretched!!,what on earth was it all about? What was the point of it??? There were more paintings upstairs by Czech artists from the early 20th Centruy but most of them looked like art by more famous French artists such as Picasso, Gaugin and Cezanne. There were photos of people living in extreme poverty which again were in focus but otherwise of no merit whatsoever. I found one lovely painting. It came from the period before the First World War before everyone was filled with angst and dejection when they were still able to see beauty and celebrate it. It was soft and gentle and beautifully painted. The best thing about the Museum is the building itself - climb to the very top and see the view - it is spectacular, and look at the amazing wooden rafters over the gallery.

This was one of the best small museums I have ever visited. All because of the major Jan Svankmajer exhibit that was going on. I would have never known the strange world of his works had it not been for this museum. The exhibits included a running of the film Alice along with his other odd works. There are stairs that lead to the small viewing platform extending from the roof. The shop sold good postcards. All around an excellent museum visit.

I went here for a particular exhibition of Andy Warhol, which was for just one month but the museum seemed really nice and the employees are incredibly nice.

We visited the Museum of Modern Art today, and it was the best choice in our day in Olomouc today (otherwise the city is full of works of repair and renovation, which make the life of tourists pretty difficult). The three floors host a rich collection of modern and contemporary Czech art. These are well organized and nicely presented. Good taste is obvious in the choice of art and its presentation. The explanation are in Czech and English which helps a lot.
