When I went here, I was not expecting much to be honest. To my surprise, this is a delightful little museum with some wonderful sculptures and drawings. The building architecture is featured in the tour, but I thought it was just OK. The highlight are the wonderful sculptures by an artist I had never heard of before, but he was clearly influential in the region. If you are a lover of fine art, go see it for sure, especially since it is VERY easy to get to (near Pilar Square).

I must admit i didn't know much about Pablo Gargallo before our visit. I'm not a huge fan of sculptures, but was very impressed with the collection. The collection is laid out over several floors. There are lifts available. There is detailed personal information about the life of the artist on one of the floors. It was in Spanish, but sheets in English were also available. On the top floor it showed some Gargallo sketches and also the models he would build for the sculptures.

The museum is closed on Mondays and open from 10 - 2 & 5 - 9 Tuesday to Saturday, 10 - 2.30 on Sundays. Admission was 4 euro and photos were allowed without flash.
Don't forget to also see the temporary collection on the lower floors.
Overall I was impressed with the museum and would recommend a visit.

Absolutely loved it. Even if you are not interested in Art, you will like the sculptures and the building.
Don't miss his beautiful drawings on the top floor. Interesting videos of how to make bronze statues and the history of the building. Helpful staff. I'm so glad we made time for it.

This museum is a must visit for anyone who likes sculpture. Pablo Gargallo was a master in Bronze casting. The museum itself is beautiful but it is Gargallo's work that is the real treasure here. His works do not hit or miss, each sculpture is sensitive and magnificent.

Stumbled into this museum, escaping the rain to find that we had 7 floors of museum to ourselves. Great permanent collection of modern sculptures and at the time the temp exhibition of Pablo Gargallo early work in pastel and charcoal. Had no idea who he was before the visit. The building is also a spectacular renassaince palace. If youre a modernist and your partner is a classicist this is will please you both...what a miracle.

I tried three times to see this museum before I actually got in, as it closes after 14h on Sundays, and is closed on Monday. Tuesday I finally saw it and it was worth it. Around 1130, there was only one other patron in the museum, so I had time to look at what I wanted, and move through quick when I wanted. The museum is well laid out and it takes just about the limits of my attention span, one hour, to see the whole museum. The artist is very talented and has several different artistic skills, represented in his drawings and sculptures. Information is mostly available in Spanish, but with my beginner Spanish I understood quite a bit.

The Pablo Gargallo Museum is located at Plaza de San Felipe, 3. The museum is installed in a Renaissance palace, called the Argilio Palace, because the owner of the palace in the 19th century was the Argilio Family. The palace has been restored beautifully and is built around a central patio. Pablo Gargallo (1881-1934) was one of the most important early 20th century Aragonese sculptors. Gargallo belonged to the avant-garde at that time and worked in Paris, and one of his best friends was Pablo Picasso. He made beautiful sculpture that is easy to understand. He sculpted bronze horses and male and female nudes. His most beautiful sculpture was an art deco piece, a piece called Kiki de Montparnasse, a mask of a beautiful woman. Kiki was a beautiful model who worked for many of the artists in Paris at that time. The building was declared a National Monument in 1943.

I have to confess that I'd never heard of the artist Pablo Gargallo. He was mainly a sculptor who was very prolific and worked with the likes of Picasso. He was from Zaragoza but lived in Paris. He also exhibited in the U.S. What amazed me was that at some point, he perhaps took a break from sculptures and turned to sketching and painting and there he showed his talent and unique perspective also extended to other forms of art. The museum seems really small and you may be surprised at the number of floors this building has. For those unable to climb stairs, there is a lift that you can take to go up and down. Definitely worth a visit for anyone who loves art.

A relitively small museum providing host to a large collection og Pablo Gargallo's works.I wasn't familiar with his works beforehand, but am now a great fan. Great building, great staff, fantastic collection.

I was unaware of this sculptor prior to visiting this museum. But my eyes have been opened. We first arrived just as they were closing at midday. Luckily we came back and toured the museum at length. The story of Gargallo's life and growth as a sculptor was quite interesting but the highlight was viewing his primary work in the permanent collection. On the main floor, El Gran Profeta was awe-inspiring.
