Francisco Carolinum Linz houses modern, contemporary art and photography. It was founded in 1855 by Adalbert Stifter for the "enlightenment and education of the bourgeoisie".

Francisco Carolinum Linz was built until 1895, according to the plans of the Berlin architect Bruno Schmitz. Today, the Francisco Carolinum Linz is the museum for Upper Austrian modern and contemporary art.

The collection includes around 1,000 paintings, sculptures and installations, as well as the world's largest collection of works by the Austrian illustrator Alfred Kubin. In addition, the museum houses an important photography collection.

Francisco Carolinum Linz offers an extensive programme for children and families. Regular family tours of the current exhibitions are offered. Additionally, creative workshops and many holiday activities are available.
