If you're a fan of contemporary art, I definitely recommend! Really aesthetic building with cool exposition that covers modern-day issues in society but also pleases the eye. People are great, gift shop is great and there's also nice coffe place in the building (you get discount for coffee if you purchase the ticket). Must see for modern art lovers !

I came here while the special exhibit focused on World War II and the Holocaust and found the collection to be among the most moving, thought provoking sets of art I have ever seen. I would say the experience was on par with my visit to the actual Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in terms of how it struck me. Both the special exhibit and the permanent collection have great variety, with paintings, photography, audio-visual pieces, sculptures, and even several interactive displays. I think this art museum is a must-visit when in Krakow, and it blows other similar attractions (such as the nearby Schindler Factory Museum, or even the Galicia Jewish Museum) out of the water when it comes to ruminating on the events and impact of WW II.

Contemporary Art is not something I usually enjoy and understand however the Mocak was a great visit and better than I expected.

There was an exhibition about Krakow during WW2 and the Holocaust where there were explanations of the art if you were unsure.

Downstairs seemed the weird and wonderful, which was enjoyable to browse.

Very cool presentation of contemporary art in Kraków. I think there are probably much better presentations of contemporary art but it is nice to check out this scene. I am sure it will evolve into a more complex and integrated display of media and subject matter.

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.

Stumbled upon this museum which is located directly behind the more well known Oskar Schindler Factory museum. The white, minimalist interior is an oasis of calm. Some interesting exhibits but I enjoyed the impressive architecture of the building itself the most. The stylish cafe bar is a good place to relax after a few hours of walking in the city.

Art should evoke an emotional feeling in the viewer & this gallery made us smile & laugh, it confused us, mesmerised us, horrified us & proved to be one of the highlights of our trip to Kraków. We liked the melted toys, the crow, the toilet & the glass floor. It's right beside the Schindler Factory Museum & we bought our tickets at the Factory for 3 zlotys each. We went to the cafe first, which had lovely coffee & divine chocolate & cherry cake. We spent around 2 hours here overall & it was a fantastic gallery - relatively empty, spacious & entertaining!

Good taste and very interesting art here. There’s two floors, bottom floor is a little more interactive and I found it a little better, a little pricey to get in but if art is your thing you may think it’s more worth it.

Bought ticket as part of a deal with the Schindler factory and was very glad we did. This was such a lovely gem of a find - it was like the beating pulse of modern Poland and all it had overcome in contrast to the majority of the other tours we had done. Absolutely loved this art!
