“Excellent, very interesting”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Cost 5 euros to get in. Based on Easter the floats were outstanding. There are guides to support you we had one who spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the displays. Excellent visit.

“Not that interesting after all”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you are not into wooden, polichromed sculptures, you'll find it a bit boring. Definitely not worth 5 Euro!

“Impressive”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This museum houses impressive works of master sculptor of Murcia: Salzillo.
Apart from the impressive exhibition of Salzillo's work, we were also very surprised by the architecture of the building. A genius design.
I fully agree with Skippy50, the museum could do with a coffee shop. This will also generate some extra income for this wonderful museum.

Definately recommeded for a visit when you are in Murcia.

“Exceptional building and exhibits.”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

A museum dedicated to one of the greatest 18th Century sculptors - Francisco Salzillo. Though there religious nature of the sculptures are alien to a Northern European, the quality of the processional pieces are such that you can't help but be impressed. I particularly liked the building - a blend of old (17th C chapel) and new (2002-2009), with echo's of the Libeskind Jewish museum in Berlin. If you have an hour spare, this is well worth visiting. Could do with a coffee shop - or is this a particularly English request?
