If you are looking for a good range of (mostly) Spanish art from the Renaissance period (most on loan from the Prado in Madrid), then this is worth a visit. If our experience is anything to go by it won't be too crowded! We also benefited from an interesting (free) tour from a volunteer guide - in Spanish only, though.

A selection of Spanish art from religious subjects to more modern landscapes. Gives an overview of what was popular in Spain at certain periods. Very quiet inside and free admission.

Stumbled upon this place quite by accident,and glad that we did as it was a cool,calm respite away from the tiresome heat of the day-with culture to boot!And it was free which appealed to our Scottish sense of parsimony!We spent a pleasant half an hour plus wandering round the gallery looking at a rather eclectic mix of modern&old style art,as...

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.

My husband and I visited the Museo Municipal de Bellas Artes in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The museum is located across from the park and the door is easily missed, as there in not a large sign announcing the museum. 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!
