“Really worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you like modern art, this museum is a must. When we visited, a part of the museum was under reconstruction but we got in for half price (5 zl iso 10). Very nice building, paintings, foto, installations and videoart. The entrance was a bit hard to find but it is at the back of Schindlers factory. "Kunst macht Frei" was impressive!

“Very good art museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is really a great facility in terms of design and layout. It's what a contemporary art museum should look like, albeit just a bit smaller.
But whoever's running this place has a great sense of zeitgeist (first time I ever used the term in a sentence) and imagination, The exhibits were well put together and installed, and catered to a wide range of tastes employing multiple mediums. Even folks who may not care for modern or contemporary art will find something to enjoy here.
Very well done, folks. Too often, contemporary art museums are temples to over contemplation, self absorption and minimalization in terms concept and effort. These guys, at least on this visit, managed to bring together a pretty good collection of young artists and good works.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

MOCAK is located right behind Oskar Schindler's factory and is a wonderful museum. The permanent collection is great and when I visited there was a fascinating exhibit of ecologically sound inventions and creations by Polish and British artists. Worth an hour or two. It's even free on certain days!

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Came across this by chance as it's next door to the Schindler's List Museum and we were glad we took the time to visit. Some fascinating art and design. Great building which was an excellent setting for the various works on display.

“Good if you like modern art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We found this place by accident next to Schindler's factory. We read about it in the guide book and never really intended to visit, but decided to have a look seeing as we were there.

Entry was cheap at 10 PLN or around 2 GBP.

If you enjoy modern art and design like I do, you will enjoy it here. There is a wide selection of exhibits to see. My girlfriend isn't so keen, so was quickly bored. I think your enjoyment here depends on how much you like this sort of thing.
