Although most calendars show the objectification of women, the collection is housed in a stunning building. The history of calendars across cultures is interesting. All in Spanish though.

Excellent museum in a beautiful building. Wonderful exhibition that not only captures art, some of it qualifying as genuinely fine art, but also the march of cultural time up to today. Some fun, some inspirational, some sensual, some practical. I highly recommend a visit. Great...More

The gardens and terrace alone are worth the visit! The history not only of calendars but also of advertising on them is quite interesting.

Had the opportunity to view first hand calendars from 1901. I reminisced on the calendars offered by merchants when I was a kid. Beautiful art exhibits and gardens. Great place to spend an afternoon.
