  • The work of the architect Portuguese Siza maintains some spaces well articulated, designed for exhibitions temporary as the two Act les that are of great quality and effect. As what want to comment is the building and spaces, it suffers from many problems of conception beginning because it is confusing for visitors not familiar with these contemporary buildings. Shortage of bathrooms and poorly located. Surveillance with Sauber almost non-existent because it is replaced by cameras, lavish and well placed. The visitor flow is erratic and is well signposted although on each floor are not shown the emergency plans for evacuation, etc., in accordance with safety regulations. Stairs, floors like wood, lack of non-slip, necessary elements in a climate such as the Galician and also indicators liminossmen the steps that would prevent scares and small accidents. It is not i decade the movement of disabled people so you must ask the scant staff. Address, services, offices and library area is completely separated from the rest, which is logical, but the specialist or concert visit before or may be in difficulties. Disproportionate to the very low number of visitors shop. The cafeteria dismantled although it has a good space on a covered terrace that completes the interior. A work that today would not be done and less with this approach. Result of the years of regional euphoria of long ago. In Santiago, city monumental by excellence the visitor will use the time on other things. Attempts to improve but not it gets, although the offer of exhibitions is attractive.

  • The Galician Centre of contemporary art is located next to the Museo do Pobo Galego and Santo Domingo de Bonaval Park. As the name suggests in its interior modern artworks are exposed and it is a good counterpoint to the view to the "Museo do Pobo Galego". A set, both museums must-see

  • I had one of the best meals of my life in the restaurant round the back of this museum. It was in a peaceful and beautiful garden round the back, we had met the chef earlier on the camino, he was so friendly, and in the restaurant came out to check we were enjoying our food and chat. As I said amazing food, we had a butter bean and lettuce salad and chargrilled octopus...simple food, but so delicious and perfect for the environment, traditional Galician and modern. I could never recreate such delicious food at home.
  • Not the best Alvaro Siza building but sometimes they have nice expositions (I saw three and was never disappointed)
  • Free creepy basement conceptual art.
  • Creado en 1993 e con programación estable desde 1995, o Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea está situado no límite da cidade monumental, nun espazo máxico para os galegos, compartindo veciñanza co convento de San Domingos de Bonaval, onde se atopa o Panteón de Galegos Ilustres; co Museo do Pobo Galego, recordo etnográfico da nosa historia, ademais de constante ponte e metáfora entre as nosas orixes e a actualidade; e cun antigo cemiterio, recuperado por Álvaro Siza (coa colaboración de Isabel Aguirre) e convertido en sorprendente xardín de aires metafísicos, unha presenza moi galaica da auga e unha solución en explanadas e volumes que dá suxerente réplica aos do centro.
  • Interesting Museum but with little content, it is not to visit as a tourist must-see, but if there is a temporary exhibition or some specific act is a good place to go. As a museum if you live in the area always is interesting to go.
