Well worth a visit for the various sculptures

Look out for the floating boxes above the walls of the museum. Do not miss the amazing upside down church sculpture outside the back entrance. How did they do that?

A point that appears in many of my trip’s reviews: I’m a barefooter, and if a museum doesn’t let me in without shoes, it gets 1 point less than I’d normally give. There’s no good reason why anyone should have to wear shoes in a museum and insisting about it is nothing but a sign of a repressive society that... More

This ultra modern concrete and glass structie set into and against the walls of the old city is worth a visit for the structure alone, let alone the contents. It really is magnificent. I really to not understand Joan Miro so that was something way over my head, but thee was an exhibition on the lower floor concerning wine and... More

Surprisingly great place to spend an hour or two! Some fantastic pieces, including the iconic sculpture outside by Santiago Calatrava.

Stunning modern gallery set in the old city walls - go on a Friday and you choose how much to contribute on entry. Interesting contemporary collection with some fascinating Miros and good temporary exhibitions in the basement... But one of the best things is the sculpture in, around and on-top of the gallery, and the walks incorporating the old fort... More

The art museum is sited in a modern building within the old fortifications and it is nice to see how they have integrated the two to create a good space for the displays. These were pretty good with a nice mix of paintings and scuplture. The Friday we visited was a "you decide what to pay" day and this is... More

This structure is part of the old fort along the water, and has some outstanding views from the terraces. The museum has been blessed with a talented architect and designer, and indeed houses some of the work of the better known Spanish artists as well as some lesser talents- but the art, spread scantily along the soaring walls and bathed...

Go on a Friday & pay what you think it's worth! This place has a stunning location looking right over the bay, it's a mix of old fort & ultra cool contemporary building. Great exhibitions, plus a lovely bar area with inside & outside seating. We often called in there on the way back from the town to have a... More

Visiting "Es Baluard Museum" it was a very bad experience.... At the cashier there was not any informing notice about the closure of Miro's Hall ,that was my principal intention to visit the Museum . This museum because of the poorness of the exposition art items might be named as an art gallery not such as a museum....specially without the... More
