  • Worth a quick visit, partly because its entrance is free and given the position. You won't find any important artwork or awesome things.

  • We went to the museo do pobo galego and as it was us aside and have cafeteria we went to take a look. The truth is that exposures that were at that time to make the tour interpreting you what they're seeing in our case that we are not experts in contemporary art seemed a bit loose. They are huge rooms and lots of stairs and lengthy corridors no apparent order of where to go. The terrace was closed and we could not see it. I think that it may be interesting if you understand contemporary art or if you do the tour.

  • The building does not disappoint, exposures are small and there are usually 3 simultaneous. Attention to the visitor is almost non-existent, if you like the work of Álvaro Siza must-see.

  • Great exhibition. Not too busy.
  • *FREE* entrance. It's modern architecture hosts contemporary artists from all over the world exhibiting their works of art and multidisciplinary projects. Exhibitions are renewed quarterly and has a bookstore with a neat selection of books and a restaurant with a terrace in Bonaval park next to the Museo do Pobo Galego.
  • 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)
  • Not recommended
