Definately go if you are interested in modern art.
Sep 2019
The museum of modern art in one of the hanging houses was closed when we visited Cuenca, so we went here as we found it open as we walked around the town. I think that this collection of modern art is probably just as good. There were many pieces of art well worth seeing. There are also good views of the gorgr to be seen fron the building, an old convent.

Very large modern art gallery an old convent
Sep 2019 • Couples
I found this a surprisingly good and very large art gallery for a relatively small town. There is a real wealth of modern art and far more than the usual 'is that seriously art' type of modern art. There are sculptures, paintings and artworks over four floors with twists and corners around the building. There really is something for everyone. The gallery is open every day from 11.00 to 2.00 and from 5.00 to 8.00. Although entrance is marked as 2€ entrance was free when we visited. There are also wonderful views from a couple of outdoor areas so you can sit and admire the view as well as the art. We spent two hours here and enjoyed it.

Plenty to see - and fascinating as well
Jun 2018
'm not a great lover of art, but this was really interesting. What I found the most fascinating was the architecture - this goes for all of the old part of Cuenca, but especially the centre of the old town.
A truly awesome place and well worth a visit, even if you're 100km away!

Open Your Mind to What Art Is
Oct 2018 • Couples
A very nice art museum that begs the question, "What Is Art?" You'll find all sorts of examples of modern art located within an absolutely beautiful building with an amazing view. Sculpture, paintings, objects, fabrics, and more that push the boundaries. The collection deserves a look if you have the time. We can highly recommend. Young children may not appreciate it, but if you have children that are interested in art, this will get a reaction from them!

Should not be missed even if art is not your passion
Jun 2018 • Couples
So much to see and such an exlectic collection. Antonio Perez was not afraid to champion anything which appealed to him. Such a variety of styles are exhibited. Really enjoyed it and my husband too and he is not such an art enthusiast as me and definitely not contemporary art. And the building with superb views needs mentioning .

Museum Foundation Antonio Perez / Carmelite convent of Cuenca
Nov 2017 • Solo
Building located in the top part of the Upper town of Cuenca, owned by noble Fernando Ruiz de Alarcon, was bought by Carmelite order in 1622, for the price of 975 000 Maravedis. Building had polygonal floor plan which follows topography of surface beneath. It was reconstructed twice during the 17th century, for its new purpose of Carmelite convent: in 1624, by the master stonemason Juan de Celaya, and in 1651 under the orders of the master carpenter Pedro García and the master builder Antonio Velasco. Exterior walls and cloister what could be seen today dates from that time.

Now, former Carmelite convent is occupied by the Antonio Perez Foundation and its labyrinthic interior composed of stairways, galleries, landings and cellars is perfectly suited for vivid and ingenious selection of Modern, Abstract and Pop art. Collector, editor and artist Antonio Perez had been gathering all that stuff over the years and among exibibits you can find pieces of A. Saura, F. Zobel, G. Torner and A. Warhol. This place is something completely different and could steal from you easily more than hour. As almost any other place in Cuenca, it offers great views and with fee of 2€ is a must visit in the Old town. Great staff, relaxed and goofy atmosphere just adds on total experience.

An 'Objets Trouves' Find
Nov 2017 • Couples
A multi-roomed gallery in a former Carmelite convent, with windows and terraces giving onto amazing views from its cliff-top position.
Antonio Pérez has collected groups of everyday items and given them (an often funny) twist.
The earnest can find a series of lessons on the interpretative eye -- how sometimes we can't help ourselves from seeing one thing as another -- but my guess is that AP considers a lot of what's on display as simply stuff that appeals to his sense of humour.
It really is a lot of fun.

Escape from the ordinary
Nov 2017 • Friends
If you are in Cuenca this is something you shouldn't miss. An hour here should leave you smiling and delighted. Collections of "found objects" ...tens of toy robots... heart shaped pebbles and stones ....add some twisted metal...pieces of wood that look like faces or people... old sweet wrappers which look like geyshas. Hard to describe just needs to be seen. A unique experience and a delight.

Fabulous art collection in a lovely building
Sep 2017 • Couples
We are fans of modern art so were bound to like this place. However, there is plenty of interest for just about anyone. The building is also pretty impressive. The staff were helpful and enthusiastic.

Even if you would not usually visit a contemporary art museum, I recommend trying this one. At 2 euros each there is not much to lose - and I defy you not to find something you like or are intrigued by!

Endless Amazement
May 2017 • Friends
We had no idea what we were getting into, when we entered. This place goes on forever, and is wonderful. I don't particularly like modern art. I'm more of a realist. I didn't expect to like this museum, but boy was I surprised. There is something here for everyone, and it is sure to spark your creative side. The building itself is worth visiting. You could spend a good amount of time here, because it literally just sprawls on forever. I would definitely return, if I make it back to Cuenca. My 22 year-old, and a couple of young ladies we met, hung out with, also really enjoyed this.
