The Museum of Contemporary Culture seeks to exhibit, analyze, and broaden the knowledge of contemporary culture(s) in an effort to generate a better understanding of human life today. The exhibitions at MuCoCu are intended to explore, explain, and contextualize modern cultural experience and all of its wonders and curiosities.
