“A museum worthwhile”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit there. However, I must admit that the front court yard was the most amazing part of the museum, with the giant sculptures and the overall view of the surrounding buildings!

“Lovely Oasis within the bustling city”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Stumbled upon this place whilst wandering around Palma. Decided to venture in, since the ticket vendor made it sound so interesting and there were some Dali sketches on display. Cheap entry, lovely views over Palma and a great insight into a historic house of the city. I believe they have the largest modernist collection within Majorca as well.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is a wonderful array of art and sculpture. As you arrive the sculptures keep you in the garden for a bit longer. The building is really worth a view alone but they have some worthy pieces on display not to mention the Dali. This is very close to the Cathedral but seems to be sadly missed by the masses. Don't miss it, it's the best museum in Palma.

“Peaceful, cultural escape from the crowds.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

On a hot July day we there were only two other visitors so we had the whole place to ourselves. It's set in an old palace with an elevated courtyard containing a number of good sculptures (including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth) and which gives great views across the town. Lovely to just sit and contemplate!

Inside had, at the time of our visit, a Dali exhibition together with the permanent collection which includes a number of old maps which we found quite fascinating.

Well worth the €4.50 entrance charge.
