Notable for its blob-like architecture, the Kunsthaus Graz Art Museum (or just Kunsthaus Graz) was built as part of the city’s 2003 celebrations as the European Capital of Culture. The museum was constructed as part of the 19th century Iron House building, one of the first cast iron buildings in Europe. The famous exterior is comprised of nearly 1300 iridescent blue acrylic panels with almost a thousand 40-watt lightbulbs, creating a massive screen in the middle of the city. Known to some locals as the Friendly Alien, the museum covers 27,000 square feet and specializes in contemporary art, design, new media, film and photography. It regularly hosts events and exhibitions that highlight worldwide trends in art.
The Graz Art Museum, also known as the Kunsthaus Graz, sits on the west bank of the River Mur in the city’s historical center on the corner of the Südtirolerplatz and the Lendkai. Get there by taking tram 1, 3, 5, 6 or 7 to Sudtiroler Plaz/Kunsthaus. Guided tours in English are conducted on Sundays at 2pm, but an audioguide and an iPad app are also available. The museum café stays open late, to 11pm weeknights and 1am on the weekends.
