Very interesting art exhibition, both the permanent and temporary one. The staff is extremely polite and the building is marvellous.
A really nicely sized museum with a great permanent collection and an interesting style. The top floor was modern geometric/architectural metal sculptures and paintings from the artist responsible for securing the funds for the museum. I'm grateful for the museum, but not a big fan of the art... The second floor had a fantastic mix of modern art from Spanish and foreign artists including a Calder mobile, some Miros, and a few folks I'd never heard of before. One of the staff told us that they had Picasso and and other modern masters that were currently out of rotation, but still included in their permanent collection. It's definitely worth checking out MACA especially during the hottest part of the day if you're not on the beach.
An interesting and spacious building that displays well the various artworks. There are items in here that are clearly important within Spanish life and culture but that are hard to 'read' coming in from cold. Worth a quick visit even if your not a modern art fan. Only issue: why is the man in the front desk so incredibly angry with everyone?! Try giving people a welcome so they know it is OK to be there.
Beautiful modern building and fascinating artwork. Spacious interior and good layout. Not crowded, so one can enjoy the museum's content in peace. Very nice!
If anyone likes the art I recommend, one Picasso work, free admission, no photo opportunities
Awesome museum in center of alicante, FREE ENTRANCE
Cool building. Nothing to write home about asamuseum. One third was closed
So-so contemporary art...but some real gems amongst the varied works.
