  • I recommend visiting the Museum... Since you get to the Museum everything is very nice and interesting to go to enjoy all and every corner in the company of your partner!

  • Had always loved to go to the Museum of abstract art in Cuenca. He had something intimate, fresh and very personal. The new rehabilitation and Museology are splendid. We went from Madrid to spend the day and enjoy every detail, every room, every magnificent work. A delight and a pleasure for the senses and the mind. When we were just people, but I reckon that on weekends must be tremendous. Yes when we went we saw a group of about 20 Eastern arriving, so we imagine that they will be coming more and more people visit. And no wonder. The new museology and the arrangement which has been made is first: good taste, good understanding of spaces and works, and their interaction. In addition, some of the most spectacular views of the Tagus basin. Congratulations to the Museum and the March Foundation.

  • The very successful renovated and reopened in November 2016 Museum offers more exhibition spaces through its extension within the famous "Casas Colgadas" and is modern, restrained, to make the works of art in the foreground. A really successful archtitektonischer Gallery extension, which provides a unit with modern art presented there. A fantastic experience for lovers of abstract art. In addition, the views of the fascinating nature are a special experience.

  • Very nice to go through the small museum if you have already climbed to go see the houses.
  • . Well, you can't not give it 5 stars, can you? :-) The emblematic sight of Cuenca, the Hanging Houses. Best view perhaps from the Puente de San Pablo - the ironwork bridge, but also from down below if you do one of the walks alongside the river. Inside is a somewhat eclectic collection of art, and of course you get the good feeling of being on the inside of one of the wonders of the world! Well, one of the wonders of Cuenca, anyway! .
  • There is very nice view point for full view of Cuenca.
  • Interesting Museum in a very characteristic with fine views. Too bad that so little is open on Sundays from 11 am to 14.30 and most importantly the staff hurry to close Windows and sound installations at 14.15 preventing to conclude the visit. Usually if a Museum is open until 14.30 visitors can see works and installations in full until closing time.

  • A good collection. To me what I liked most were the works of Zobel. The space is very nice. Free entrance. Closes a few hours at noon.
