#4 of 8 in Museums in Alicante
Three permanent art collections are housed at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Alicante Maca, inside the oldest government building in the city. The highlight of the attraction is the Juana Francés collection, bequeathed to the museum by the artist. This local artist's collection includes graphic work, paintings, and sketches that impress with their use of shape and texture. The Baroque government building where some of the collection is displayed is attached to a modern structure designed by architect Sol Madridejos. Inside this portion is a 20th-century art collection, with pieces from Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso.

    € 2 per head. 4 levels with elevator or stairs. Nice paintings. We didn't know anything about art, but contemporary it's always nice to 2, being asked lots of question. Dining room 20 degrees, when its 35 outside, bind the useful to the culture, I recommend. Super friendly staff!

    It is a small museum, if you don't entertain much, hour and half have seen you. I really liked the permanent exhibition dedicated to Eusebio Sempere, I learned a lot. The space is very large and comfortable visit, is free.

    Not a big Museum, but a great Museum. Again, in a beautiful square, and well organized, interesting exhibitions and nice collection. Downtown.

  • Beautiful modern building and fascinating artwork. Spacious interior and good layout. Not crowded, so one can enjoy the museum's content in peace. Very nice!
  • 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.
  • Small but beautifully formed. A lovely modern building overlooking the Cathedral in the old district of Alicante. Free entrance and a small but interesting collection of modern art and sculpture by local and national artists, including a couple of Mirós. The exhibits change from time to time. Tranquil and relaxing.
  • Small but interesting museum of modern art of local artists. Good way to spend a couple of hours on a wet January afternoon.
  • 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.
