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.

It makes a difference with so much gothic and mediéval museums in Leon, the outside architecture is modern and colourful, some modern art and sometimes exibitions in the museum; there is a cafeteria for a break.

Many exhibits . Worth the visit if you are into contemporary art . If not the exterior of the building is still worth a visit.

Very cool building exterior and really interesting exhibitions inside- a lot of them quite political. Would recommend a visit

Unless you are a real lover of contemporary art, don't waste your time and money going here. The outside of the building is unusual with its coloured panels but the art inside was poor. I didn't see one exhibit that I found interesting. I spent...More

Dear CatherineH94, Thank you for your opinion, however, real lovers of contemporary art do not spend fifteen minutes inside a 3,300 square meter exhibition space. Perhaps you were expecting some other kind of art, because contemporary art is more than just painting and requires that...More

We visited MUSAC in June and enjoyed the exhibit "Andy Warhol, Music and Vinyls (1949 - 1987)" which is on until September 4, 2016. Admission was just €3.

Dear Drew, We are glad that you enjoyed your visit to MUSAC. The admission fee entitles you to see all temporary exhibitions, so I hope you enjoyed the rest of the shows as well. Looking forward to having you again on another occasion. Best regards,

The building is very interesting, but the exhibition inside was really not interesting and too extreme. I love modern art, but this was really not worth it! The Spanish opening hours also didn't help!More

This was a refreshing and spacious modern art exhibition space. It was very doable in about a little over an hour and coming from New York, that is novel. There were about five exhibits and I found one particularly interesting. It had to do with...More

You never know what you are going to experience when it comes to contemporary art. Although most of it wasn't to my taste, there was an interesting film we watched about the farming around Leon. It was very informative. Visiting a museum like this makes...More
