The translations of the exhibition exhibits which were in Spanish / Catalan only. Without this the exhibits were meaningless to anyone from the UK or elsewhere for that matter other than those who can read Spanish. The QR code which wehad thought would assist provided broad statements only in English which added nothing for the visitor. We were left with an eclectic mix of exhibits which meant nothing to us. However the building has a beautiful exterior but has a nice quality but uninspired interior. My advice is to admire it externally as part of a short walk around a number of even more beautiful ( my view) turn of the 20th century buildings but don't bother to pay the 7 euros for the exhibition. To the exhibition organisers please put some effort in and provide translations - it runs for the next 2 years apparently!

The Fundacio la Caixa took over the modernist Gran Hotel in 1993. It was designed by Catalan architect Luis Domene Muntaner and completed in 1903. The Caja de Pensiones of Barcelona bank group turned it into their foundation's HQ and a venue for their arts and cultural programmes.

The 5 floor exterior of the building has facades intricately decorated with sculpture formed by the combination of human, animal and vegetable themes. It is lovely & one of Palmas most iconic buildings. Another similarly dramatic venue is found at La Caixa, Madrid, almost opposite the Prado

Currently the centre is hosting an intesting exhibition on the development and art of skyscrapers around the world, with a number of scale models. There is also a cafe-restaurant and the most fabulous toilets!

Well worth a visit if you are in the area and right amongst the shops on Pl Weyler. It's free.

Mentioned in guide books and on trip advisor as a building worth seeing and it certainly was.
One of several Gaudi-esque buildings in this part of Central Palma
There is a free to enter contemporary gallery opposite also- watch out for long closing period in middle of the day

One of the important museums in Palma with a permanent exhibition of Mallorcan artists and temporary exhibitions. The Disney exhibition we visited was first class and at only 4 euro, a steal.

This museum is in the old Gran Hotel and the modernista design is fascinating. We viewed the Disney exhibit which was interesting. for those who do not speak Spanish note that there is information available in English in a free brochure provided by the museum though the works of art are only labeled in spanish and Catalan.

We visited this museum on our last day in Palma, and I’m sad to say this was the only disappointing place we visited during our entire trip. Entry was 5 euros and we didn’t feel this was good value for money when compared to the other brilliant museums and galleries in Palma.

During our visit there was an exhibition of Ancient Greek artefacts on loan from the British Museum. Although interesting, being followed around every exhibit by members of the security team somewhat ruined the experience for us. They are also extremely militant about the order in which you are allowed to see the displays - we tried to see the ground floor exhibits first but were (quite rudely) turned away and told we had to visit the first floor first, although the reason for this was unclear. Again, this somewhat ruined the experience of browsing the exhibits at our leisure.

The exhibition of art was more enjoyable, with some very beautiful paintings. However, there were some very small paintings displayed high up on the walls, making them quite difficult to see properly. The gallery felt a little cramped compared with the other Palma art galleries we visited, where each piece is very well displayed to show its full potential.

A visit here is likely to vary depending on the exhibitions at the time, and it’s true the building is very impressive, but our experience here was much less enjoyable that at all the other places we visited during our stay. If you are short of time in Palma, I would definitely give this one a miss.
