Owner description: In the historical heart of Naples, the three floors of the 19th-century Palazzo Donnaregina host the Madre · Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina: 7.200 m2 of exhibition spaces, with site-specific installations, as well as works from the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. The building, whose name comes from the Swabian Monastery of Santa Maria Donnaregina (13th century) was restored and refurbished as a museum to a design by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza Veira in 2005. Today it offers to its public, next to the permanent and temporary exhibition paths, a library, a mediatheque, a bookshop/cafeteria.

It was ok, nothing memorable but it has a great roof terrace that you can see almost all Naples from.

I enjoyed this museum with it's temporary exhibit. Unfortunately, most of the permanent collection was closed off.

To be fair about 55% of the gallery was closed when we visited and they didn't charge for admission.

That said, I thought the art on display was utterly useless and I say that as an an avid lover and collector of modern art.

This was definitely the biggest waste of time we experienced in the entire city of Naples and it is not a gallery I would return to. Even the gift shop was closed at 11am in the morning. Doesn't that say just about everything about their commitment?

walked across Naples to see this gallery,paid to get in,only to find that they were between installations.Apparently there had been more to see previously but had very little when we went.Could go round this in 10 minutes and that includes walking up and down the stairs.

Wow, love this museum! A wonderfully redesigned old palazzo in the heart of the historic center. One of the best permanent contemporary art collections permanently on view as well. With rooms of art by clementi, roni horn, Richard Serra, Anish Kapoor, etc.. I highly recommend.
