The museum was founded in 1948 as a museum and a gallery. It holds works of Croatian and foreign modern artists in several important collections. The exhibitions prepared by its curators and highly professional artistic staff are amazing, relevant and modern. This is surely one of the best contemporary art museums in the region.

Do not miss this Museum! We do try to hit a museum in each country we visit and though we go to Croatia every two years to see family we had not visited this beauty. This time we did and so glad. Very nice collection and the building is a masterpiece in its self. Do not miss!

It's curated by great artist (Slaven Tolj), it exhibits very intriguing and engaged stuff, it's socially aware institution and working amazingly regarding the fact that it's undersubsidized. Don't expect glitter, stars and shines, expect highly relevant art presented as art and not entertainment. It's small but clear and present.
