Overview
More
The Kunsthaus Graz opened its doors in 2003, the architectural piece de resistance of Graz's year as European Capital of Culture. The biomorphous building designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier-known locally as the Friendly Alien-has since become an attraction for art lovers and the culturally minded from all over the world. But it has also become an essential landmark in the urban identity of the city of Graz. As an exhibition centre for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media facade-designed by Berlin designers realities:united-constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology. Effectively a large screen in the middle of the city, it acts as an instrument of art communication.

Very disappointed that the main gallery was closed, however we could still go to the landing gallery were the view is fantastic & is free.

Great museum, that sticks out from the usual neighborhood architecture. It contains several floors that you can explore, library as well as a gift shop to pick up a souvenir or two.

Was very disappointed. Essentially there are two floors with one currently dedicated to donated chairs from VIP's. The second is dedicated to the building. The sense once you go up stairs is that they are playing a joke on you. The feeling by the time...More

What a great art museum in Austria, looks from far like a spaceship, inside there are 4 floors to visit a small souvenir shop and a parking garage that is not only for the museum, right next to downtown Graz very good location

The architectural design of this museum is unique, grotesque, fascinating and perplexing all at once. It is worth spending a fair amount of time circling the structure to get a sense of the entire project, also to cross the street and to walk over the...More

This extremely odd building is worth looking at but you can't get a photo because the location is in the middle of streets & other buildings. If you walk along the river you will come to the Murinsel which is much better.
