Opening of the MOCAK Museum in Krakow

The project of creating a museum of contemporary art in Kraków, which had been discussed for years both within the artistic community and the local government, finally became reality towards the end of 2004, when the Municipality of Kraków purchased the land and buildings on the site of the former Schindler factory at Lipowa Street 4, with the intention of providing a home for the future institution. The inauguration of the MOCAK building took place on November 16, 2010. 

On May 19, 2011 a formal opening of the Museum took place, as well as the presentation of the first six exhibitions. Thousands of visitors came to MOCAK on that day, including the President of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski.
