This really is an oasis of calm in the middle of Soller. Built in 1911 and described as 'an example of modern style in Majorca', it is a lovely example of Art Nouveau - beautiful carved doors, high ceilings and the most wonderful light fittings. There is a lovely courtyard garden complete with sculptures but they were busy tending it... More

Excellent, quirky mix of established artists and local work. Right in the middle of Soller old town. Worth a visit.

I visited with my wife who has greater interest in art than I and was blown away by this magnificent old residence. It was beautifully presented and stunning in its scale considering how tight the surrounding streets are. A real gem hidden in the heart of a lovely old village

Beautiful house tucked away in a narrow street provides perfect backdrop for beautifully presented artworks. However, agree that the house is as interesting as the art and enjoyed the detail in the windows and tiled floors. A very stylish mix of the old and contemporary. Well worth a visit.

Not to be missed. Be sure to look at all the tiled floors and decorative doors and windows. The building is at least as interesting as the artworks. The dolls are a bit spooky, the Miro paintings and sketchbooks interresting and the garden a delight.

This museum/gallery, just off the main square, exceeded our expectations. The house interior is itself a work of art, while there are modern art exhibits in the basement and on the top floor. There is also a small garden. Apart from the décor and art, there was a wonderfully cool, tranquil atmosphere in contrast to the bustle and heat outside.... More

The house is gem, with its enthralling wrought iron and plasterwork, even if there was immensely noisy building work going on to improve the museum. The garden is a treat too, peppered with an eclectic mix of sculptures - the bare-naked lady with the mirror was a surprise! The art indoors is a little disappointing, I feel, apart from good...

I would recommend this museum. It has some interesting paintings but more than that it is worth going for the beautiful interior, furnishings and exquisite tiled floors. It's in the main shopping street and is compact so you only need about 30-45 minutes to go round. Entrance is 5 Euros

A wonderful house with plenty of the original furnishings on display, the lampshades in particular are exquisite. This is blended with a varied collection of modern art, the way the period furniture and modern art have been blended together is a 'work of art' in itself. For anyone interested in architecture the house and furniture alone are well worth the... More

This museum gave an insight of what it would have been like to live the life of a fairly well off Majorcan.
