Art Museum Architectural Building
Home to an extensive array of contemporary and modern artwork, Kunsthaus Graz serves as an architectural landmark in itself. Pay a visit to the unorthodox building and you'll see why it serves as a symbol of modern art, thanks to its blob-like construction. The museum boasts a screen on the outside made up of separate pixels projected over a curved surface. Wander the facility and explore its displays and pieces from artists around the world, focusing on works that span a wide range of contemporary topics. Join a guided tour for a more in-depth look at the museum's holdings, or download the audio guide app from the website for a self-guided tour. Be sure to check online for information regarding the museum's temporary exhibits. Kunsthaus Graz is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Graz Edition.

  • I have nothing against the existence of "wacky" architecture, but that they should put something like this in the middle of the Altstadt is a real shame. Why didn't they put it somewhere soulless and horrible like Seiersberg, or down by the Messe? As for the inside of the buidling, it isn't remotely interesting. Just bare concrete everywhere. Maybe that was "edgy" when they built the place, I have no idea. The art exhibition that was on when I went ("Destruction") was pretty dire. All in all, not worth spending money on going inside but if you bought a Joanneum ticket anyway for something else, and there are no other museums you want to see with it before it runs out, and there's no-one on the street who will take your ticket and use it to see a proper museum, go inside. Good toilets which are free and open to the public. They can have another star for that.
  • Interesting building and exhibitions. I would've personally preferred the exhibitions to be more "contemporary", rather than a museum of curiosities.
  • Only one floor was open and we paid the full price. Still a great building to explore with a nice view on Graz.
  • This modern art museum has an interesting design for sure! Inside there were some modern art works and also some biology collections (mocking birds, fruit model, etc...). Was worth a visit! The top floor has a view to the old town too.
  • A building that will stand out from all the other. It is supposed to be represent the "heart" of Graz.
