  • 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.
