The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Art was founded in 1948. It collects and safeguards the works of Croatian and foreign artists of 20th and 21st century. Besides this, it also collects the works of artists who lived in Rijeka from the end of the last and up to the middle of this century. The treasures of The Museum of Modern Art are deposited into five collections. Due to the lack of exhibiting space there is no permanent exhibition. The works from the collections are exhibited occasionally at the thematic and monographic exhibitions.
