Good overview of Spanish art. Too much religious art for my taste. Centrally located. Easy to find, and open more than other places.

The Museum of Fine Arts is considered the second best fine arts museum in Spain, after the Prado. There is a very large collection of art here. I especially like the Chapel, where one can see so many of Murillo's large paintings. His Inmaculada is one of his best masterpieces and is hung in Sala V. The other paintings found... More

This museum is supposed to be the third most important museum in Spain, so I had to visit it. I could not believe that the entrance fee was only €1.50 and became even more amazed when I saw the pieces on display. I particularly loved the Murillos. It was also very refreshing to be in a museum that was not... More

It is fine just a bit drab and not hugely inspiring. Lovely courtyards and a well laid out exhibition though with a couple of gems towards the end. Perhaps more for those with more knowledge of fine art than me!

Nice lighting , pleasant building --- more prominent artists than I anticipated in a lesser venue. I particularly enjoyed the main hall with various Madonnas. It is somewhat lacking in sculpture and in total breadth but what it has is very good.

Excellent art museum exhibiting local artists chiefly. A real education nicely presented and either free or very cheap admission. If you like this sort of place to visit - do not miss. We learned lots!

This little museum is worth the visit - and it's free for residents of Common Market countries. The building itself is worth the visit, with beautiful courtyards (patios) and the arab influence on the architecture - but the museum also has a great collection of art spanning several centuries. It's not the Louvre or the Prado - but it is... More

The Cubist exhibit was interesting but the museum itself is beautiful with courtyards, Spanish tile displays and lots of Baroque art! For 1 1/2 euros it is quite a bargain!!

I share the view of many reviewers. The building and courtyards are interesting and beautiful, but the exhibit is very classical and becomes monotonous. There are only so many Madonna and child and Jesus on the cross one can look at and maintain an interest. Even the temporary cubist exhibits left me uninspired.

Very little contemporary art. The collection, as one would expect in Spain, is mostly older relgious stuff, though there are a few outstanding pieces.
