“Sculpture court steals the show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

The sculpture court with a number of pieces by well know sculptors steals the show, as well affording excellent views over Palma. The interior collection is more mixed and your reaction may depend on your artistic interests but definitely worth a visit.

“interesting building and a mad nativity scene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Permanent small collection of sculpture on the lovely terrace, with an exhibition of Dali sketches and prints, and a very grand interior. The real draw is the bonkers massive nativity scene with hundreds of lifelike models of people and animals.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

A few steps from Plaza Mayor is this little gem of a museum. It is an exellent exhibition of the private art collection of Senor March, a financier. The collection concists of modern art and has some stunning pieces. The collevtion is not too large, so this museum, which is free to enter, is a great place to pop in if you want to mix a little culture into your shopping.
