Currently hosting a Mark Ryden retrospective exhibition which is simply a must see. Marks paintings and sculptures are wonderfully surreal and humorous and impeccably crafted. The fact that this exhibition is free is a wonderful bonus. You will not be disappointed!

I would have paid to see the nice Mark Ryden exhibit! It was so fantastical and beautiful, you could see the smiles on everyone's faces. The paintings were nicely spaced, and even with taking our time we were there for less than 1 hour. The check in desk lady was very nice. I did not see restrooms!

This is a great space for artists to exhibit their works. My friend brought me here while I was in yhe city and there was an Exhibition on by an American artist by the name of Mark Ryden. Although I like art I am far from an art buff. This guys work was strange, weird and wonderful. I would visit... More

Mark Ryden is an American born in 1963 and is now the King of Pop Surrealism. His paintings are very interesting because he likes to paint sad young girls with big eyes, meat, Abraham Lincoln, Christ, the Virgin Mary, dinosaurs, rabbits, and countrysides, all in the same painting. You need many minutes to comprehend a painting. He also has picture... More

Visited this museum in the beginning of 2017. Highly recommend the Mark Ryden: Camara de las Maravillas -exhibition (-> 5th March 2017). Just amazing pictures! The museum has no entrance fee and it's comfortably small so you can pay even a short visit and it's definitely worth it.

The museum is relatively small, only one floor in a old markethall building. They have changing exhibitions also from artists that are not that famous yet. It's free of charge.

If you're a fan of modern art maybe you'll enjoy the gallery. The collection is not large and as a matter of opinion there didn't seem to be many distinguished works. They need to add more as the size of the building dwarfs the exhibits. Some items suggest that the cleaners have forgotten to remove rubbish laying around on the... More

The gallery is all on one level, so it's easy to get around and see everything. It's not huge, but it's big enough to be fascinating. They have a small permanent collection of international artists (including Warhol), but most of the space is given over to new and upcoming artists from Spain. We visit 4-5 times every year and love... More

If you enjoy modern art you should go here as I did. The building is next to the dry river bead near the port. The space is well designed (as most Spanish projects are) and offers free admission. It is unfair that I am carping about their current exhibit (which covered much of the area) that did not give me... More
