It is free so I am not complaining. However, most of the art did nothing for me. It is a nice cool space and the trendy cafe is pleasant. It may be right up your street artwise.

It was ok very small not that much art. A small cafe inside and free entry. A good thing to do if you are in the area.

Maybe because I am not a great fan of this kind of art, it was ok to see on a Sunday morning (with nothing else much to do) - maybe that's why it was deserted. I certainly would not waste a trip. Entry is free. Definitely NOT my highlight of Malaga!

Very nice collection of contemporary art and cutting edge temporary exhibitions. Large, airy exhibition space. On par with contemporary art museums in major art centers.

Really enjoyed our time at the CAC in the early evening (open until 9). A nice selection of mediums which all commanded study, in particular the interactive sleeping tables. A great bright and open gallery space. Nothing with any wow factor though and not of the scale of other European modern art centres but well worth the visit.

I went to see the Marina Abramović exhibition because of all the publicity this museum had issued about her. According to Time Magazine she is supposed to be one of the 100 most influential people in the world. All I saw in the exhibition were large photographs of her, with titles. There was no explanation of what she was trying... More

A friend from nearby Torremolinos took me to the C.A.C. to see the El Roto exhibition recently and I was absolutely gobsmacked by what a superb exhibition space this is. It's huge, airy, the light is beautiful and the exhibits are world class. Just go.
