Quietly positioned down a side road to the back of the cathedral is this little gem. It’s only a couple of euros to get in but well worth a visit. Although there are only two floors of displays it is well set out and informative....More

Skip the crowds at the famous La Seu cathedral and get a phenomenal introduction to the history of Mallorca at this three-story museum just behind it. Works of local artists are displayed chronologically century by century from medieval times through the 20th. Pick up the...More

This museum is well marked on city maps. Signage on the streets leading to the museum also assisted us in finding this museum which was located about 2 blocks from the cathedral. There was an admission charge, with a seniors rate of 1.50E. There were...More

Recently refurbished to a very high standard. The museum has a chronological display of Mallorcan art from the C13 on to the C20, Just enough so that the casual visitor is informed but not overfaced. Mainly paintings and some early sculpture, but also some superb...More
