This is a fantastic opportunity for anybody from Northern Europe to get aquainted with and enjoy art from Africa. it is also in many ways a moving... More

Modern gallery built onto a front of an old building. It has a strange lay out with lots of rooms with hardly anything in there. Walkways across open space and a big space right up the middle of the building. Go if it's raining otherwise don't bother.

We enjoyed a temporary exhibition by African female artists in a beautiful building combining old and modern architecture. For free on Wednesday evenings!

There are toilet facilities and a rest area/terrace - hot and cold refreshments are available from a very reasonably priced vending machine. Would definitely recommend a visit. Free entry too...

We visited the CAAM as part of our 1-day tour of Las Palmas. We loved the architecture of the building. The collection during our visit was about South-America and visually a bit special with a lot of caleidoscopes. You can takes pictures (without flash), staff is friendly, lockers are freely available (and mandatory as you can not take a backpack... More

For contemporary art, the setting it is displayed in can be of great importance. Here we have a magnificent building in the old town. From the outside, you would expect some antique palazzo, but the interior is a nice ensemble of clean and white spaces full of light. The current exhibition (iconocracia) has highs and lows, but the museum is... More

The CAAM is a fantastic building which is definitely worth a visit. The photos from Cuba is not really worth the time. I always wonder why ugly is more art than beauty. I prefer beauty

Of the artworks shown, maybe 5 could be qualified as enough to graduate art school with. And then barely. I was shocked and saddened by the lack of even an attempt of an exhibition.

Wasn't my cup of tea, sorry. I am a great appreciators of art but a pile of rubble is not my thing. A strange layout of rooms. You have to lock you bags in a locker 1 euro refundable.
