  • We were visiting the temporary exhibition of hyper-realistic Spanish art and Japanese prints. The collection of prints is not very big, but it is representative and original. The hyper-realistic is, to my taste, fantastic. There are still lifes from the 17TH century to "portraits" of elements of our time. The Museum is generally very nice and worth visiting it.

  • At 1 minute walking from Plaza de Las Flores, in the heart of the town centre. Excellent Musseum. It is worth visiting!.
  • Great exhibitions and permanent collection and the building is a beautiful one, visit the shop with a great collection of art books and assorted gadgets
  • The permanent collection is beautiful and the QR codes to scan near the paintings provide additional information about the artist and the piece.
  • Very nice collection of works from a variety of artists and styles. It is also worth coming again every few months to see the temporary exhibitions. Tickets can be bought separately for the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
  • Good collection lacking true master works
