If you read Karla’s article about the Museum of Contemporary Art (MSU), you already know that it’s a must-see on the art map of Zagreb. If you’re into art, especially modern and contemporary, there’s one more must to check out: People and Art House Lauba. While the MSU is a state-sponsored museum, the Lauba House is a private collection whose owner decided to share it with the public in a renovated piece of gorgeous industrial architecture.
The most prominent exhibits here are contemporary pieces signed by young popular artists; a lot of them date only a few years back. If you want to experience the present state of Croatia’s art scene, that’s the place to go.
One more thing worth mentioning: the Lauba House has great opening hours! Most museums in Zagreb are open only until 19:00, which is a bit inconvenient if you work 09:00 – 17:00; Lauba is open from 14:00 to 22:00, so there’s absolutely no excuse for avoiding this fantastic spot.
