“LOCAL AND UNIVERSAL”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We were attracted by the Sorollas and ended up admiring the local painters such as Nicanor Piñole. The museum is located in 2 old palaces so only stepping into these structures made it even more pleasurable. Quiet, spacious, well-maintained and highly advisable if you visit Oviedo. Only a few steps from the Cathedral and you can enjoy the sight of pieces by local artists and inheritances from private collections which contain themes somehow related to the city. Definitely a must.

“Interesting”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

When we visited there was an excellent contemporary temporary exhibition on the ground floor. We also enjoyed the work on the second floor which covered the period from end of 19th century to mid 20th century or thereabouts.

“Worth a visit on a rainy day!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I should start off by saying this museum is free to enter. Woohoo! There are very impressive works of art located inside and the building is very beautiful. You don't need a lot of time to see the whole museum because it's actually pretty small, I would probably say an hour would be enough time to see everything...maybe 1.5 hours. Oviedo is a very pretty city and honestly I would recommend this museum on a rainy day or if you had some time to kill. It wasn't overly impressive but definitely worth a visit if someone has the time.

Here are the times for the museum:
September 1 - June 30th
Monday CLOSED
Tuesday -Friday 10:30-14:00 and 16:30-20:30
Saturday 11:30-14:00 and 17:00-20:00
Sunday and holidays 11:30-14:30

“Must-see in Oviedo”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Amazed entry was free into this gallery. The building itself was beautiful let alone the art exhibition which included works from Goya, Dali, Picasso and Sorolla. If visiting Oviedo, don't miss it!
