Museum was founded in 1954 with the task of collecting, researching, documenting, and exhibiting modern and contemporary art. The MSU collection comprises around 16,000 artworks by Croatian and international authors. The new museum building opened in 2009 (14,500 square meters), enabling large, high-technology equipped premises to host the permanent display entitled Collection in Motion, representing diverse trends in contemporary visual art. The museum venues enable a constant interchange of thematic and monographic exhibitions of Croatian and international artists. Applying new technologies and innovative approaches in the presentation of art, the Museum policy tries to recognise the unforeseeable character of contemporary art and to convey it to the broadest public. MSU functions as a documentary, research and education centre. It prepares diverse educational programmes for the public of all ages, as well as lectures, seminars and workshops. MSU Zagreb is coordinator of the BAUNET project .
In 1811, Archduke Johann of Austria and the estates of Styria jointly set up the Joanneum as an “inner Austrian national museum”. After the educational side was separated (Archduke Johann University of Technology in Graz) both geographically and organizationally from the museum collections a unified Styrian Museum was established in 1887. In 2003 it was transformed in a non-profit limited company Universalmuseum Joanneum GmbH, run jointly by Peter Pakesch as intendant and artistic director and Wolfgang Muchitsch as scientific director. More than 4½ million items in the collections form the basis of a richly faceted exhibition and events schedule. A programme of exhibitions and events at ten locations throughout Styria transmit a unique panorama of science, art and culture. The Museum is divided into 10 mayor museum departments and four other departments. Museum, which attracts annually more than 500,000 visitors, employs 500 staff in carrying out its various functions.
