Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, Leon

2.9
#5 of 10 in Museums in Leon
Marvel at a collection of some of today’s finest art at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, spread over 2.1 hectares (5.2 acres) of exhibition space. Admire the large array of modern works, all of which date from 1992 or later. Wander through the museum’s open-plan design and be sure to bring your camera, as the outside of the building is itself a work of art: a facade of new-age stained-glass windows inspired by Leon’s cathedral. Explore the exhibits further on a guided tour, and check the museum’s website for schedules of traveling exhibits and lectures by both curators and artists.

  • Bike beautiful and special as well outside. As shown in the pictures many colors and well maintained I would say.

  • It is worth to see it both for its architecture and for its collection. Personal photography and exhibition 'Región' worth. This last is about the disappearance of Riaño due to the creation of the Marsh

  • It is best that you go to if you like contemporary art, even if you have never visited a Museum of this style, I would recommend you that dieses an opportunity. Exhibitions curated retail, a large amount of information both in Spanish and English, exhibitions of works in varied formats... It is always a pleasure to visit this museum. In addition, they always try to publicize castellanoleoneses artists and have interesting activities and projections programs for all audiences.

  • Joyous and playful architecture with an infant Lego like exterior and khan-esque naked honesty running round the well lit, if austere interior. The café is a quite respite with warm staff; as is the rest of the museum! Don't pass through Leon without a glimpse of her modern landmarks: check out the wildly set collanades -actually walk them- of the Junta building across the road. Gutsy design- love it or hate it- it's brave and unapologetic.
  • Great building with amazing facilities but always is quite empty, I think someone have to make that more lively with activities and so on!!
  • Nice, for free on sundays at 17
  • Nice place, check the opening hours, between 2pm and 5pm the museum is closed.
  • Ok
