MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow

  ul. Lipowa 4 ,   Podgórze          (+48) 12 263 40 01     16 Mar 2023

Opened in 2011, Krakow's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) does not disappoint, capably holding its own with comparable international art institutions. Located next to Schindler's Factory, the building alone will impress with its avant-garde styling and ultra-modern layout. The museum boasts a large and fine collection of modern art highlighting both Polish and international artists, plus the Mieczysław Porębski Library and its collection of works on art theory and history, as well as a permanent exhibition space devoted to Krystian Lupa’s interactive installation Live Factory 2 - inspired by Warhol's cult NYC studio. The majority of MOCAK's exhibition space is given over to multiple temporary exhibitions, which are usually quite provocative and always changing: check their website for details. Despite the relatively late closing hour, make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy all the museum has to offer, including the large cafe (independent opening hours, including Monday) and bookshop.

Average visiting time: 2hrs.

A must see on the list of Kraków's many museums and galleries. MOCAK is often overlooked by the tourist hordes who wander past on 'Schindlers trail' but they don't know what they're missing. Go check it out, they have many great temporary exhibitions to compliment the permanent displays.
