Parts of the museum were closed, but the new museum, divided into an older building and a modern one is spectacular. The fine arts are good, but the real treasures are the archeological findings -- gold jewelry, stone carvings etc.

This is a Museum that is well worth a visit. It combined an art gallery in a modern building linked to a very good museum in the older building.

The museum is divided into a number of buildings and floors, each space dedicated to specific themes or historical moments in time. Our tour was accompanied by a guide from the museum who helped to select perhaps the more important pieces within certain sections. Not...More

The museum has six buildings and the modern, glass enclosed one is a must. I spent two hours and could have spent an hour more. Exhibits are beautifully done, well-displayed and there is signage at the entrance to each gallery in English. The annex building...More

Now housed in a new (and not-so-pretty) modern building down by the river, this provides several floors of artefacts and paintings. Particularly impressive are the works of Castelao on the top floor. Not to be missed.

A couple of the mansions that make up the museum were closed for renovations but the largest art focused buildings had a very appealing collection and I particularly enjoyed the exhibit on the earliest pre-Roman and Roman settlements of Galicia. And the museum was free!
