Art is very subjective and this is a museum that, for me, does nothing. Watching a video of a man who looks like Uncle Festa dragging an illuminated candelabra round his g8arden at night baffles me. Looking at the reviews, Kings new clothes syndrome , I think .

An interesting building and attractive cafe. The view from the walkway worth the trip but sadly, the Art work was strangely exhibited and in our opinion totally underwhelming. The pile of ? wood shavings on the floor of one gallery caused amusement even amongst the members of staff there.

The buildings are architecturally very successful, perfectly designed for the function. You can see quite a few great Miros, some Picassos, Tapiese and others. The outside sculptures contribute to the great overall impression. And so does the walk on the roof, you can see the cathedral, the sea and the harbour etc. A must is the restaraurant attached to it,... More

Any gallery review will be highly subjective - all depends on your own tastes - personally, I loved our visit to this art space last week. The building has used its space pretty well and what is on display is quite a mix - from the cavernous space in the lower part to rooftop views & a mix of Spanish... More

I wish all those responsible for the cultural life in Palma to continue on this path. It's a beginning, with a couple of well-known classics (Léger, Picasso and - of course - Miró) and a "local" surprise or two from the end beginning of the twentieth century. I do hope that the space around the museum, which is ideally placed,... More

A decidedly average gallery in every respect. Miros by the mile but you'd expect that, and they are far from his best work. Everything else is derivative and not what you'd hope to see. The architects did a spectacular jobbing fitting this inside an old fort and it is worth visiting just for that.

..and a really nice (and small) collection of modern art. The terrace of the cafe is reserved for eating. If you are only in for drinks you will not be able to enjoy the magnificent view over the port and city, but during your visit to the museum you will get plenty of that. Beautiful architecture. Very convincing synthesis of... More

A lovely place to relax outdoors in the sun... we stayed an hour or so.. the sofas and the bamboo screens make you feel cool and rested. We didn't eat here, just coffee but the food looked good and the indoor restaurant looked inviting.
