ATTRACTION TYPE Museum/gallery


BUDGET €117,600,000


The renovation of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Poland, is part of a wider revitalisation scheme for the city centre. The new museum and theatre complex, will be built next to the Soviet-era Palace of Science and Culture, will be a symbol for the new Warsaw – a city of culture, diversity and openness. The square in front of the Palace of Culture, previously used for parking, will be transformed into an area where locals and tourists can enjoy outdoor cultural events. Thomas Phifer and Partners were selected to design the new Museum of Modern Art and TR Warszawa Theatre. The ground floor of the building will be free to all. There will be a small gallery with temporary exhibitions and a bookshop. On the first and second floor there will be permanent exhibition spaces. Plans also include building educational space, a library, an auditorium, a cinema and a café. The €117.6 million (PLN 504m) project commenced construction in mid-2019 and the work is estimated to complete by mid-2022. (Updated 28 February 2020)
