well laid out, well lit and a cosy sized art gallery to look around in say half to three quarters of an hour

Worth a visit if you have time to spare - not much in the way of international artists but some good and intriguing pictures both historic and modern.

We were attracted by the Sorollas and ended up admiring the local painters such as Nicanor Piñole. The museum is located in 2 old palaces so only stepping into these structures made it even more pleasurable. Quiet, spacious, well-maintained and highly advisable if you visit Oviedo. Only a few steps from the Cathedral and you can enjoy the sight of... More

When we visited there was an excellent contemporary temporary exhibition on the ground floor. We also enjoyed the work on the second floor which covered the period from end of 19th century to mid 20th century or thereabouts.

I should start off by saying this museum is free to enter. Woohoo! There are very impressive works of art located inside and the building is very beautiful. You don't need a lot of time to see the whole museum because it's actually pretty small, I would probably say an hour would be enough time to see everything...maybe 1.5 hours.... More

Amazed entry was free into this gallery. The building itself was beautiful let alone the art exhibition which included works from Goya, Dali, Picasso and Sorolla. If visiting Oviedo, don't miss it!

Nice paintings, some of them from famous authors like Picasso, Dali, Murillo, El Greco, José de Ribera,Sorolla, and many others. It's free.

We spent an hour or two at the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias during our visit to Oviedo in July. We were amazed by the collection - especially considering that it has only been open since 1980. As other reviewers noted, it is mostly Spanish painters - with an emphasis on those from Asturias. It has 2 or 3... More

There are some nice paintings here, but nothing extraordinary. Found it a bit odd that, despite admission being free, we had to buy tickets. Also found it annoying that the security guards kept following us around.

in the old part of town and within a block from the cathedral. The museum is housed in an old mansion, well refurbished for this purpose. It displays some great works from Spanish painters, particularly from Asturias.
