  • Situated in the most charming and ancient of Catania, the Museum is located in the Abbey of Saint Benedict's monastery in via Crociferi, typical of the Baroque period, important feature that differentiates the Museum from others: the connection between period features with modern ones. Advice personally and highly recommend the MACS for those who want to experience sensational through the wonderful deeds that it hosts.

  • It is much smaller than I expected and doesn't really give an overview of Sicilian's contemporary art as there seemed to be many foreign artists' works as well. Although it was interesting to see that...  more »
  • A very clever method to finance a gallery: it's called Museum and put the entrance fee. Set in an ancient religious structure, this space that has more steps which works on display is actually a private gallery, just calling itself the Museum and then charge admission. The works on display are of commercial quality, certainly very far from Museum quality that deserves the name "Museum". Works from useless to interesting, distributed according to me even in a little curatorial. Let it go, it's better.

  • It is a small collection but the quality is very good indeed. Well worth a visit and the €5 admission
  • Entering gave me more the feeling of a gallery than a museum.
  • There are places where the atmosphere unique, magical, timeless. The MacS is one of these, the museum combines the beauty of art and culture from the past to modernity in contemporary art. The prestigious permanent collection of figurative art of MacS includes: the "International" Section and the "Italian" Section. The Museum houses some 60 works including paintings, sculptures, and fotomanipolate, making room for young talent and established artists. Also the MacS is a dynamic Museum, welcoming, opened the exchange of views and dialogue. I highly recommend visiting this little gem
