  • The building is architecturally ineresante but is a somewhat left form exploado. Something failure when a Museum is made famous by the Burger of your restaurant.

  • It is the Museum of contemporary art of Castilla and Leon. That means that it houses contemporary works, i.e., not all people are (or we are) familiar with as art which is, in most cases, difficult to understand. The truth is that on the outside it is very nice, colourful, warm and cool, inviting you to take a picture. The majority of tourists are amazed by its façade but disenchanted with the works that saves. Personally, very important, visit day. The colors of the facade only is appreciate with the light of the day by what (to me) is essential that has light natural. In addition, it is in a place away from the city. His visit to Leon can start from this point and walk toward the center of the city, passing by the Junta de Castilla y León, Hostal San Marcos, Guman el Bueno square and, once done this tour, continue by Ordoño II Street toward the center of the Leonese capital.

  • To have a good time "crushing" to photos. Must-see both outside and inside.

  • This is an excellent museum of modern arts
  • Criticism of the location depends on the taste of the person. Well you can say that the art of this place is not something that is understood easily and less still for someone which do not call him much attention the concept of art that occurs in this century. Giving by echo place this data gives us a variety and complexity of very large art. You could say that is very well thought out for people who understand the new contemporary art and even so occasionally you can enjoy an artistic experience more aimed at people like me who have quality in art the old.
