Sit in front of the place and listen to swearing guy hanging from the balcony
Jul 2019 • Friends
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.

Fascinating collection
Dec 2018 • Friends
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.

Wonderful small gallery
Sep 2018 • Couples
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.

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.

This museum is a gem considering Olomouc's size of 100 000
Dec 2017 • Family
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.

Interesting buldning and a museum woth visiting

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

beautiful art, nicely presented
Jul 2017 • Couples
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.

angel delight
Feb 2017 • Couples
the museum is a short walk from the main square an,d definitely worth while - i last went to see the exhibition of angels in art which was comprehensive, including work from several centuries up to the present day, both two and three dimensional, and was a real eye opener for those of us only familiar with raphaelesque angels. the other exhibitions were equally interesting including one of paper (much better than it sounds) and a fascinating semi-permanent collection. when visiting the museum continue upwards to the highest point where there is a glass roof with superb views of olomouc and the church and streets below. the admission is extremely reasonable with a free day, i believe on wednesday. certainly a must see!

Best museum in town
Nov 2016
The museum of modern art is the nicest museum in Olomouc. The nice staff is very friendly and willing to help around (even with limited English). The museum has a nice collection, although their set-up is quite unconventional. Don't miss the second building near the big church!

Wonderful Building with collection of Czech Art
Oct 2016 • Couples
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.
