Art Museum · Hidden Gem · Library
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.

  • Depending on your tastes the front of the building can be appealing or appalling. However, it is worth going in - you will be confronted and challenged - as art should do - on your world...  more »
  • This is a beautiful building on the outside. Interesting exhibits worth seeing. I recommend going at night - chances are you'll run into an event and have no crowds.  more »

  • 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.
