The Gallery of Klatovy/Klenová organises its activities in the area of the Castle and Chateau Klenová, which is gradually being turned into a sculpture park.
The best preserved parts of the castle from the 13th century are a dungeon building, a well tower and a castle fortification, along with a burgrave and a chateau building. There is a permanent exhibition from the archives of the Gallery displayed on the ground floor of the castle; various exhibitions of contemporary modern art can be visited during peak season. Additional exhibition spaces are managed by the association directly in Klatovy – in the Gallery at the White Unicorn exhibition activities take place in a historic building of the former burgher house; the premises of the Church of St Lawrence are used only during the season.
