Given that entrance is free, nobody has a right to complain about this museum. Some pieces, some of which are on loan from the prado, are quite good, others not really, all the same worthwhile IMO.

It wasn't a good start when the local security men, couldn't direct us to it. Pleased we didn't pay, but it was a pleasant diversion. Not worth visiting if time limited. Some good large paintings, some fairly inferior stuff, reminded me of a small town gallery of local work. However the war paintings at the top were worth pondering.

Loved the price - free! An eclectic collection of modern art (lower floors) which I rather enjoyed and not-to-my-taste dark religious art that was considerably older. Lovely building.

I visited on Sunday when entry is free but I was unable to see the modern art What I did see was not outstanding but did include a number of works on loan from the Prado which were worth a look. I guess these are rotated every so often.

Admission was free and we were able to tour two floors before the museum closed for the afternoon. Art is... More

There are two parts to this museum: a permanent collection and a temporary. I am only reviewing the permanent collection and that is awful. A lot of bad religeous art and dull portraits. Only one decent picture - a dutch tripich - which is worth seeing. Thank heavens it was free!

The Museo de Bellas Artes in Santa Cruz de Tenerife has only a few rooms, but the displays change frequently so it is worth taking the time to visit when you are in Santa Cruz. Most recently, myself and two children age 11 and 12 visited the museum on a weekday morning, and we were the only visitors. We had... More
