Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, Leon

2.7
#5 of 9 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.

  • This is an excellent museum of modern arts
  • The musac is a landfill of crap. You can see how the art has degenerated to rot. No artists but clowns being silly. Anything they call art and artist. It is not worth. It is shameful.

  • Its temporary exhibitions there is always some interesting. I think they pick them with good criteria. They have hours and days in which the admission is free. The venue is spacious and pleasant visit.

  • Absolutely essential visit if you like contemporary art. Visits guided tours, activities, a good Museum in a small town

  • It brings closer us to the chaos of the modern art in the form of harmonious pleasure... almost always
