I spent a good portion of an afternoon at MOCAK and really really enjoyed it. It's nice building with a great layout and interesting giftshop. While I admit I found it difficult to engage with a small number of pieces (there was a whole section dedicated to random scribbles on paper, but I guess that's art for you ), I... More

Wasn't sure but really pleased I went. Amazing stuff. Makes you think. Some things I would not want in my home but several pieces I just loved. Very avant garde and modern. Mixed media. But it depends what's there on the day.

We visited here after Schindler's Factory as it's close to its exit. There are some interesting items to view here, but some less interesting also. Art is a personal preference and I did see some pieces I liked and some I simply didn't understand at all. The museum is bright and friendly with plenty of space to move around. There... More

At the time of our visit there was a medical exhibition. Definitely not for the faint hearted but extraordinary. Medical concepts presented in art form was very enthralling. We also enjoyed the gallery's collection. Must have cake and coffee in the cafe to keep strength up to see all the exhibitions.

I loved the current exhibition relating to medicine in art. Although not for the squeamish. Very thought provoking. The other exhibitions were amazing as well. Would highly recommend.

Bought a ticket to MOCAK as an add on to Schindlers Factory, it turned out to be a great place to visit. The building is big and modern, a total contrast to Schindlers next door and is filled with really interesting and thought provoking exhibits. I can't remember ever liking a modern art gallery as much as this one. I... More

Interesting space. Disappointing exhibits including permanent collection on display. Enjoyed a few installations and paintings. Library concept sounds good but we didn't visit it this trip.

This museum was unexpectedly great and interesting. As a modern art lover it was nice to see this great building. Modern, spacious, great works and a nice temporary exposition of "medical" arts. Very interesting to see and read and realize that artists from an other background and from a country with a different history than your own, make art from... More
