  • Here you can see pictures of older and contemporary Spanish painters. The amount of images, corresponding to a Museum of about two hours. And there is no entrance fee.

  • This free Museum is worth a trip to discover the artists of the province. The historical part which presents how arts were promoted in Spain is very good. Maximum hour tour.

  • A Museum of contemporary art with teenagers, suffice to say that it is not always won. Here is free, we have fewer scruples to not dwell on each work. So far the place has been very well-appointed, it circulates between the floors and the great outdoors. The collection includes paintings, paintings, metal compositions, optical effects, collages, structures... what address even the most reluctant to art.

  • An interesting and spacious building that displays well the various artworks. There are items in here that are clearly important within Spanish life and culture but that are hard to 'read' coming in from cold. Worth a quick visit even if your not a modern art fan. Only issue: why is the man in the front desk so incredibly angry with everyone?! Try giving people a welcome so they know it is OK to be there.
  • Thought we shud try to educate ourselves so went to look at this art gallery. I'm quite sure that if ur into ur art this is a wonderful place, but we aren't so a lot of head scratching later we left. Super looking building inside, no photos.
  • I was impressed by the layout and beauty of the building itself and when we found out it was free we spent a lot of time looking through the four floors. As with any art that were pieces that I was not impressed with but the overall impression was very good. I would highly recommended this as a refreshing stop to get out of the heat of the city and enjoy an afternoon.
  • Great example of European and modern art. Also a great field trip when I was on study abroad.
  • The building was magnificent. It is free entry and has toilets which is useful. As for the art, some were very clever 3d displays. Others were very niave, and we just don't understand why they are called masterpieces. I guess we just 'don't get' contempory art.
