The Museu Fundación Juan March is housed in an 18th century mansion on a busy pedestrian thoroughfare - Carrer Sant Miguel - in the centre of Palma. The doorway to the house is easily missed when walking along the lane, but search it out because the museum itself is a gem. The mansion was converted to a museum in1990 and... More

This gallery includes some excellent examples of modern art from the last 50-60 years. Look out for the Tapies in particular. We also saw some remarkable Picasso etchings. If you have the least interest in abstract art, you shouldn't miss this gallery -- and it's entirely free!

Great little oasis in the middle of very hot, busy Palma. Beautiful old building, galleries fully air conditioned. Art may not be to everybody's taste, but an enjoyable way to spend an hour. Entry free.

The museum is near Placa Major. The entrance is free. There are two works of Miro, one work of Dali and a special room of Picasso's works. The museum has an excellent shop where you can buy pictures of works.

We discovered the Museu d'Art Espanyol Contemporani - Fundacion Juan March the first time in 2012. They had a great exhibition with fantastic paintings and other artworks. We really love the calm atmosphere near to the shopping streets and the fresh coolness inside. We enjoyed it every time and had wonderful breaks there from the heat of the old town.... More

Do not miss this museum if you like art and architecture. A multi level structure of beige stone shows off the extensive collection of Miro's works in a unique way - wherever you walk you are experiencing the art together with the architectural features including windows into gardens and ponds, and many spectacular Miro sculptures.

We were nearby so looked it out as it has such great reviews. First of all the building is wonderful and the sense of calm as you walk around is relaxing. The artworks are nuggets of interest and even if you're not a huge arty fan this is a great collection and is a hour worth of anyone's time.

Having a limited knowledge of contemporary art I was unsure how much I would enjoy my visit. My fears were completely unfounded the museum itself is tranquil and calm despite being surrounded by shops and tourists. The collection is varied and organised so as to be striking yet not overwhelming. The permanent exhibits have just the right amount of information... More

A simply gorgeous looking building, with some interesting artwork, permanent and temporary exhibitions. We've been several times and it's never crowded so plenty of time and space to enjoy the paintings and an opportunity to relax away from the hustle and bustle of central Palma.

The location, with views out over the bay is very pleasant. The design of the building itself is the most spectacular thing though. Also, that you get to see how Miro worked & how much he enjoyed the space. Great architecture. For art enthusiasts.
