Croatia: Zagreb, the Contemporary Art Museum


The double spiral slide designed by Carsten Höller: It’s not what you expect to see at an art museum.

Today we took the tram out to visit Zagreb’s Muzej suvremene umjetnosti or the Contemporary Art Museum for those who like us are not fluent in hrvatski. As usual, nothing really makes sense at modern art museums. This one was no exception.

Even outside there was a quirk. Most amusingly there is a double spiral slide designed by Carsten Höller that lets visitors exit the museum from the exhibition halls on the second and third floors of the building in a hurry if they want. Becky and I were all keen to give it try. Unfortunately was signed as out of service due to “bad weather”. Odd, as it was sunny and 70° F at the time.
