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.

Contemporary building, excellent photo exhibition about Galicia.

Óscar Escudero 1 year ago

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

Mar Ceska 5 years ago

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.

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.
