🗣️ Contemporary Art Center of Galicia: Meningen
There is currently an exhibition of photography by Raniero Fernandez from the 1950s and 1960s and for us it has been a very good discovery. Highly recommended for those who like photography and especially street photography.
beautiful building. Enormous. brand new Interesting exhibits.
A very interesting place to see, the entrance is free and it has some great exhibitions.
A huge building with very interesting exhibits
Contemporary building, excellent photo exhibition about Galicia.
Apart from the exhibitions, of quite variable quality, the cafeteria and the bookstore are excellent spaces and attended by extremely friendly people. For that alone, it deserves 5 stars.
It's free and if you like this sort of thing you should definitely go.
Filling an entire plant with 3 videos is not something that everyone does
Free, very interesting, and well organized! I highly recommend it
Very nice site, a little information is missing but it is worth it
Only went there to pick up food in the PEJ 2022 - European Youth Pilgrimage. :)
quality! I really liked Anton Patiño's exhibition
Stunning architectural gem with always interesting & provocative exhibitions. Very much enjoyed 1 hr here .
There is always some interesting expo. The bookstore has a great selection, you always find interesting books.
It is a small but very nice museum. The building is contemporary designed by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza. Awarded with the Pritzker Prize which is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for Architecture. It has a variety of rooms of different scales to suit the different works. The building blends in perfectly with the historical surroundings. More so now that the stone has already acquired the patina of time. Of what is currently on display, I liked the exhibition of photographs from the archive of Camilo Jose Cela in New York City in the 60s and early 70s. Photographs by Carles Fontsere so that Cela could write her book Bitter New York. It was a very interesting visit.
For me one of the most recommended museums in Santiago. Very interesting and changing exhibitions, next to it is also the Museo do Pobo Galego. A good plan on Sunday to visit the 2 museums.
From the background in the temporary exhibitions visited. Free art accessible to all ... like walking.
Nice modern gem in few minutes walk distance from the center. Spacious but will not "rob" too much of your time
Nice venue, a great complement for the visit of the city
Interesting shape of the building and nice exhibitions.
It's got lots of natural light.
Very modern art exhibits in general with all security measures. Very calm.
Experiencing such high quality architecture is an experience not to be missed. Alvaro Siza is always a certainty about it. Well-kept museum, very friendly staff, multi-sensory and suggestive visit experience. It's also free, so you shouldn't miss the chance to visit it for any reason.
Very nice contemporary museum, at the time of our visit there was a very good exhibition on refugees on, very affecting. Free admission with a nice coffee shop, the gift shop was closed at the time of our visit.
Free on certain days and many interesting exhibitions to view. Currently featuring works by local artists which are very interesting and has a cafe where events aresotimes held.
Great space near a lovely park. Both provide some peace from the town. Saw an outstanding exhibition on refugees, amongst other interesting works.
Nice place. Interesting exhibitions. Free entrance (September 2019)
Pretty cool place to go if you have time left from visiting the old City part
Very good gallery, with (currently July18) a superb multi media exploration of Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights
It is a museum with very interesting exhibitions, we went this weekend and it left a good taste in my mouth. For me, I don't know anything about architecture, I loved it and I think it's one of the attractions of Santiago, it's good that I went and I was able to enjoy the place
Magnificent cultural center in the center of Santiago. We saw the Carlos Garaicoa y Muntadas expo. April 2018. very nice garden in the back. it's worth going to see it!
It has large rooms, on several floors, where you always find interesting exhibitions. It has a cafeteria with a covered terrace and a library and loan library. Your visit is highly recommended.
Beautiful space and amazing exhibition
An example of a simple museum, effective for its purpose, the exhibits matter more than the building.
A good 2 hour trip! A beautiful building by Alvaro Siza and nice complementary art work throughout. Coffee is also very cheap and nice!
Lots of neat shops
Beautiful building by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza. Free to get in. It usually has some interesting conceptual art exhibit or another and the restaurant/cafeteria is really good. What more could one ask for?
A building worth visiting, designed by the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza between 1988 and 1993. The unmissable visit, not only for the building, but also for the exhibitions that are usually very interesting. It has an Auditorium where you can see cinema, theater and concerts, among other artistic expressions. Includes special place for wheelchairs. There is a cafeteria, bookstore and services. For those with reduced mobility, there is wheelchair access.
A lovely small gallery. Well worth a visit
*FREE* entrance. It's modern architecture hosts contemporary artists from all over the world exhibiting their works of art and multidisciplinary projects. Exhibitions are renewed quarterly and has a bookstore with a neat selection of books and a restaurant with a terrace in Bonaval park next to the Museo do Pobo Galego.
I had one of the best meals of my life in the restaurant round the back of this museum. It was in a peaceful and beautiful garden round the back, we had met the chef earlier on the camino, he was so friendly, and in the restaurant came out to check we were enjoying our food and chat. As I said amazing food, we had a butter bean and lettuce salad and chargrilled octopus...simple food, but so delicious and perfect for the environment, traditional Galician and modern. I could never recreate such delicious food at home.
