Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, Leon

2.8
#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.

  • Impressive building, near san Marcos. Programming always quality, where in addition to discover new talent, opens the mind and the imagination. A required visit.

  • The building color windows is curious and is reminiscent of the stained glass windows of the Cathedral. I like contemporary art, but on this occasion, what I saw in general reminded me to slack's first fine arts works. The exhibition space was reduced... a couple of rooms... Seeing the building I thought that the visit would take me a couple of hours as in other museums... but in 40 min I saw it. The store is precarious.

  • Nice place, check the opening hours, between 2pm and 5pm the museum is closed.
  • This is an excellent museum of modern arts
  • It is not easy to find a building well designed, well made and that are characteristic and this gets it. Facade attached to anyone who sees it, and the interiors are pretty well. In terms of content I can not speak because no, nor I like contemporary art.

  • Esun modern building which highlights its flooded facade of colors resembling pixels. There are, as it is logical, abundant and sometimes bizarre exhibitions. It is not a structure rigid, sometimes with boards or other materials change or model space so you'll always somewhere new, different. Its catalog is vast and be amazed. You can always find exciting works or contrvertidas will never be indifferent.
