Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Valencian Country / Province of Alicante / Costa Blanca / Alicante / Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Alicante (MACA)
Three permanent art collections are housed at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Alicante (MACA), inside the oldest government building in the city. The highlight of the attraction is the Juana Francés collection, bequeathed to the museum by the artist. This local artist's collection includes graphic work, paintings, and sketches that impress with their use of shape and texture. The Baroque government building where some of the collection is displayed is attached to a modern structure designed by architect Sol Madridejos. Inside this portion is a 20th-century art collection, with pieces from Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso.

Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Alicante (MACA) reviews
Small but good collection but well laid out in excellent space. It’s free as well! It was refreshing to see light spaces and cool art after the heaviness of more traditional Spanish art. more »
This is a must in Alicante. Located partly in Alicante's oldest building. Free entrance. The highlight of the museum is the great collection of Eusebio Sempere's works. Magnificent artworks. more »
Nice museum with modern exhibits. They also hold baby storytelling sessions every month for free.
Amazingly beautiful contemporary art museum in Alicante, I would even say the top thing to do here. It is located in a nicely refreshed new building and is not a typical museum feeling you get here. The temporary exhibition was closed, only the permanent exhibition was open but that was the biggest part of the museum ánd it is completely free. Very good content of Spanish artists.
