Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb

Zagreb MSU - tobogan
The MSU’s incredible slide

Zagreb hosts the most important museum of contemporary art in the country: the MSU (Muzej Suvremene Umjetnosti).

Since 1954, the works of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb have been exhibited in Kulmer Palace. A new project, led by architect Ivan Franić, was launched in 2009 to house the collection’s 12,000 works. The entire collection cannot be exhibited continuously, but the museum does have a permanent contemporary collection and hosts thematic exhibitions throughout the seasons. The permanent collections include the archive of the photographer Tošo Dabac (200,000 items) as well as the Seissl, Horvat and Richter collections.

Most of the collections are displayed indoors, but some are also visible in the park and on the roof, which guarantees a visit full of surprises. For instance, the “slide” of the Belgian artist Carsten Höller allows you to quickly return to the ground floor from the upper floors.

Free guided tours are available (in Croatian only) but audio guides (in English). You can visit the Bundek Park before or after your visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb.
