not for those who like pretty landscapes. If you like Tapies and others like him you will love this.
As soon as you enter the lovely 17thC.courtyard with its stunning Chillida sculpture, you know the artworks will be beautifully curated-and they are! The galleries are spacious and elegant and the works high quality, showcasing great Spanish artists of the last 50+ years. If you are an art lover this will be a real treat-and it's free!
We like modern art, and this museum was a nice surprise. It's an oasis among crowds of people, shops and restaurants and it's free. But visit Es Baluard as well.
If you like modern art it like me it should not disappoint.If you are not keen you can look for free.It is not an extensive collection but contains only works by Spannish artists so works very well on this level.Housed in a beautiful building it make a pleasant diversion from the busy street outside.
This is really amazing considering it's free of charge. The building is lovely and the way they have a good mix of modern art and fabulous old walls give it all a wonderful edge. Not even busy when we came and we spent a very happy hour here. Don't walk past this gift.
Free of charge, you can spend 10-30 minutes staring at pieces of modern art hardly comprehensible to average person. Then you take photo with mouth-open installation at the entrance and make use of free restroom. All rooms are air-conditioned. Such a nice stop in the middle of burning-hot day.
We stumbled across this museum by accident as we we wandering around Palma on the last day of our holiday. My children asked to go in and as it was free we thought why not? It was a lovely find giving a nice respite from the heat - larger than expected on the inside with many interesting pieces of art.... More
Well it's free entry so why not! Actually we had it on our itinerary but it is quiet and atmospheric and not too taxing so no reason not to have a look around. Lovely old building and the usual mix of modern art - some you'll love and some you'll wonder about.
If you have limited time, or just a passing interest in modern art, this is the best art museum/gallery to visit in Palma. I preferred it to Es Ballard and the Miro Foundation. My wife, who isn't a big fan of modern art found it tolerable at least (she was screaming to get out of Es Ballard and Miro's place!)
