This museum will not be to everyone's liking for a range of reasons. There's often a long que at the door which will drive some visitors to despair even before entering. It tells almost nothing of the story of Mariano Fortuny the man who contributed...More

Amazing museum out of the beaten track. I loved the mixing of modern art hanged around Mariano Fortuny art. Fortuny was a great painter, designer, inventor, etc and all these aspects are very well represented in the museum. The first floor studio is so interesting:...More

Closed for repair work. No guides mentioned this. Save your self time and energy and wait to visit. It is a little tricky to find and seems like a dead end.

The temporary exhibition for the Biennale was interesting, but there is little left of the grand days of Fortuny. A big disappointment in this respect. Perhaps I didn't do my research. Interesting building but didn't come away with much Fortuny related input.More
