Olomouc Museum of Art / One visit – A thousand years of visual culture

The Olomouc Museum of Art (formerly Gallery of Fine Arts) was founded in 1952 as part of the Regional Museum. After 1989 the Museum of Art has acquired a building in the centre of the town.  At present it is counted as one of the most important institutions of this kind in the Czech Republic, not only from the point of view of number of administered collector´s items (ca 200,000), which ranks it just behind the National Gallery in Prague, but also in terms of the professional engagement and exhibition programme. It presents fine arts from the earliest times to the present by means of short-term,  medium-term  and  even long-term exhibitions in three buildings: Museum of Modern Art, Olomouc Archdiocesan Museum, Kroměříž Archdiocesan Museum.

Museum of Modern Art

It specializes in fine arts of the 20th and 21st centuries. The museum holds long-term expositions as well as short-term exhibitions of Czech and foreign modern art. For instance in 2007 an exhibition of the world-famous founder of op-art, Victor Vasarely, was held here, in 2008 an exhibition of the most popular Czech painter and illustrator Josef Lada was organized etc. As the only museum in the Czech Republic it is engaged in collecting of so-called artist´s books.
The above mentioned activity is accompanied by other functions – educational and in the broad sense of the word cultural, which aim at an ideal of concentrating many basic cultural activities (fine arts, music, chambre theatre, heavier film creation as well as accompanying public debate) under the same roof.
