Museum of Contemporary Art

Museum in Skopje

This museum was formed in the aftermath of Skopje's devastating 1963 earthquake, with artists and collections around the world donating works to form a collection that now includes works by Picasso, Léger, Hockney, Meret Oppenheim and Bridget Riley. It's housed in an impressive contemporary building with floor-to-ceiling windows, perched atop a hill with wonderful city views. Unfortunately, its collection isn't always on display – you may come here and find its exhibitions extraordinary or mundane, depending on what's been put on display.
