This stylish and modern building was opened in 2011 right behind the famous Schindler’s Factory. With collections of art from both Polish and International artists, it’s quickly making a name for itself as a reputable modern and contemporary art venue. Most of the focus is on visual arts - photography and video - from the 1990s onwards. There is also a conservation workshop. Other than the excellent permanent collection, the interactive ‘Live Factory 2’ installation by Krystian Lupa also generates much discussion. Make sure to check out the cafe and the book shop.

We were in the area for the Schindler Museum, and stopped by for a quick drink inside the cafe. We didn’t visit the exhibits, but instead enjoyed a quiet drink to escape the cool. I went with a bottled IPA whilst my partner had a glass of red. The café has toilet facilities too, if needed.
This place is amazing! The Karl Marx exhibition is a must see, and the permanent collection is super interesting too. There is a good mix of challenging, thought-provoking and humorous works, and there was absolutely no crowd on the Wednesday afternoon that I visited. Only downside is that it’s a bit of a walk from the centre of town, but there are plenty of taxis out the front.
I had high expectations for MOCAK given the generally very favourable reviews - and quite frankly, they were exceeded. It was one of the best collections of modern art I've seen; almost all the pieces were thought-provoking, especially those that formed part of their current exhibition about national identity. What I especially liked was the information about each piece, which is often a difficult balancing act - succinct, insightful and focused mostly on the artwork rather than giving a long background about the artist. Short enough to make it possible to see all the gallery has in 2 hours, but with enough detail to be informative. Definitely recommended.
Awesome place to spend time in. The exhibitions are not at all typical and each one fascinates in its own way.
Amazing exhibition! The building is really nice and the content of the exhibition is all I love in contemporary art. Funny, disrupting, interactive, all the media are here... if I come back to Krakow I’ll come back again for sure!
