Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, Leon

2.8
#5 of 12 in Museums in Leon
Marvel at a collection of some of today’s finest art at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, spread over 2.1 hectares (5.2 acres) of exhibition space. Admire the large array of modern works, all of which date from 1992 or later. Wander through the museum’s open-plan design and be sure to bring your camera, as the outside of the building is itself a work of art: a facade of new-age stained-glass windows inspired by Leon’s cathedral. Explore the exhibits further on a guided tour, and check the museum’s website for schedules of traveling exhibits and lectures by both curators and artists.

  • The entrance cost us 3o to see a rather loose temporary exhibition, they have no permanent exposure, but only to see the building so avant-garde already worth approaching, covered with multicolored exterior panels, they say, inspired by the stained glass windows of the Cathedral of León. Inside there is a café where you can take a bite and a small gift shop with very little assortment.

  • In fact, contemporary art is not my beach. Architectonically, the museum is interesting. Say good or bad, just by saying no. Two or three permanent exposures. One more interesting than the other but it lacks, perhaps, more information or a guided tour.

  • Five stars for the stunning outside and perhaps three stars for the exhibits inside. I wasn't able to fully grasp all the intended points that were being made by the art, partly because the text was mostly in Spanish and partly because I am not 100% sure what words like interiority actually mean?
  • Being in the outskirts of Leon this Museum is an invitation to delect on modern art at your own pace and with nil distraction from crowds. Highly recommended.
