“Forget MOMA, Forget The Bienale of Venice, forget Gugenheim, the expositions niw are of word class!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

I thought to go and see their permanent collection.
The museum was rated low for being to small and with an entrancefee of $3 too expensive!
Local art only?!
How wrong the rating could be!
Whenever you are near in Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Austria or Poland, go and see these two expositions on Jetelova and Swankmayer. Top class.
Amazing that a small museum
Can reach such a top level!
This alone made my visit to the Zcech Republic this time.
Two complete dufferent exhibitions one more on photo and space installations and one on surrealist movies, its props and independant surrealist art.
Jetelova is world wide acclaimed Czech artist and Svankmajer will be!
After spending a whole afternoon
I had a rest in spacious 87 coffeshop in the same buildung.
Shows last till september/ october
Dont miss these!

“Too small”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

Nice exposition, but much too small to justify the entrance fee of 50 CZK (2 euro, but average fee for Czech museums). However, the ticket also allows you entrance to the Archdiocese Museum at the same day, that has much more to offer.

“Small but pleasant”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

The permanent collection is small but worth the time. We enjoyed seeing local artist work and could tell the enfluence on the art from modern trends in paris and munich. The contemporary exhibit was nice but as that changes go for the permanent collection and the rest is gravy.

“Worth it for the temporary exhibits alone”
Reviewed 2 October 2010

The Olomouc Museum of Modern Art is the pale grey art-nouveau building across from the baroque Lady Mary of the Snows church. The permanent collection may not be as outstanding as you might expect for such an important cultural centre, but the temporary exhibitions are often of a very high standard and well worth the low entrance fee.

The sculptural decorations either side of the main entrance are clues to the building's former use as a hospital from the 1200s to 1780s and its later use as an Austrian military prison, hospital and barracks.

The Olomouc MOMA is open year round except on Mondays, is free on Wednesdays and Sundays and free on the same day with any retained ticket from the nearby Archdiocese museum. There’s a small lookout tower at the top which is included in the entry price of the museum.
