The Pontevedra Museum is now spread across six different buildings, of which the latest is modern but linked sensitively to one of the older ones. The separate 18th century Edificio Garcia Florez was once a private house and had a varied history before becoming part...More

Very impressive to see such a large and modern and most of all free museum in such a small town. Good selection of art and artifacts on several floors. Well labelled and when we went it was almost deserted. I'd definitely recommend if you are...More

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 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!
