We believe that art has the potential to change the perception on the world. It is our goal to provide a space for this young and transient form of art, in which street and urban art engage in a dialogue with other genres of contemporary art, establishing an atmosphere of synergy, inspiration and creative openess.

As the place to be for urban and contemporary art lovers, MUCA offers a high-profile exhibition program. Artworks by renowned, internationally celebrated artists can be found on multiple art experience levels throughout the museum. In addition, MUCA provides a platform for experimental formats and outstanding in- and outdoor art projects.

The museum not only seeks to include urban art in the contemporary art discourse and to exhibit a young form of art: a special focus is set on education. Exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive program of lectures, high-profile speakers, and guided tours.


As a movement of the 21st century, street art is rightly considered a global celebrated phenomenon, yet nevertheless hasn’t established itself in the art discourse. The newly built Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) seeks to make a change by consolidating street art within art history, building a bridge between the international art scene, artists and the public.

The idea of MUCA is to bring art and its people together in a space of self-reflection, centring around the question of what a visionary museum should stand for. The heart of the museum is the community, which we invite to become part of the creative process and to look behind the scenes of our exhibitions.
