Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK)

  ul. Lipowa 4 ,   Podgórze          (+48) 12 263 40 01     01 Mar 2019

Opened in 2011, Krakow's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) does not disappoint, capably holding its own with comparable international art institutions. Tucked behind Schindler's Factory, the building alone will impress with its avant-garde styling and ultra-modern layout. The museum boasts a large and fine permanent 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 new permanent exhibition space devoted to Krystian Lupa’s interactive installation Live Factory 2 - inspired by Warhol's cult NYC studio. Several provocative temporary exhibitions are ever-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 and bookshop.

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.
