Just in time for my arrival. :( I wonder if free admission will be included for those with the Madrid Card.

Too bad, but for the quality, still a bargain at 4 euros.

Yes: worth it, absolutely. The Caixa Forum is one of the best exhibition spaces in Madrid, with consistently good exhibitions. I've never understood why it was free, and will be perfectly happy to pay 4 euros to get in.

They should charge for a view of the beautiful wall garden!

I think that the wall garden was one of the first constructed in Spain.

Thanks so much for that link, Benny. I love the wall garden - and the whole building. It's one of the great successes of modern building in Madrid, or indeed any city.

MediaLab Prado, located behind Caixaforum, is the last cultural center opened in Madrid. It is devoted to the digital culture and is housed at a former industrial building, the Serrerías Belgas (Belgian Sawmill).

Crisis... what crisis *sigh*

It is still worth the little charge, as said by fellow posters.
