Small but pleasant gallery

A couple of hours worth of well narrated artwork. There is not much English but the staff are helpful and there is a guide which gives you a decent overview of each gallery.

About ten minutes from the Paseo Maritimo in La Coruna, is a little gem of an art museum. I was fully prepared to pay entrance but upon telling attendant that we were visiting from New York, she allowed us free access. There were art works from as far back from the 1500s, some Goya prints, and quite a few ceramic... More

I have visited the museum a great many times over the years. They are the home to a great many excellent pieces; however, when I visit I always pay the two Reubens they hold a visit. They were stolen some years ago, and their recovery has been featured on television and in newspapers. Over the years, the museum has mounted... More

My wife and I went to visit this museum and enjoyed it very much. We had been to it four years ago. Sorolla painted El Boyero Castellano in 1918. This is probably the most valuable painting in the museum.

Picasso early days exhibition fantastic, and very informative. We had no idea he was such a prodigious talent at such an early age.

A lovely selection of mainly Spanish works from the 16th century to 20th century.Two small Rubens caught my eye. A separate room is devoted to the etchings of Goya. I would have given 4 stars, but I was lucky as a special Picasso exhibition had just opened. This was fantastic, showing the story of Picasso's early years in A Coruna.... More

This is an outstanding building architecturally. Free admission. Disabled friendly. Lifts. Toilet for Disabled. The art work is varied and well displayed. There is a separate small gallery for the Goya engravings - Los Caprichos and others. The Prado lends works. Sadly no descriptions in English at the moment. There is a gallery of ceramics also. A Spanish version of... More

Good selection of local contempary art as well as items on loan from Prado, complete collection of etchings by Goya. When we visited it was free entry, don't know why. Good for a couple of hours.
