Museum of Public Art Tours

25 Reviews
Madrid is full of beautiful museums with both classic and modern art on display, but the outdoor Museum of Public Art showcases another side of the Spanish art scene. The open-air museum, uniquely situated under a bridge in the middle of the city, features 17 pieces of abstract sculpture by (until now) undiscovered artists. It is a public space used both for recreation and for the discovery of unique local art. Two generations of Spanish avant-garde artists are represented, from Joan Miró, Julio González, and Alberto Sánchez in the 1920s and '30s to the pre-Civil War artists such as Eduardo Chillida. 

Groundbreaking art blends seamlessly into the existing structure of the city and is accessible to anyone and everyone, which makes this unique museum particularly notable. Aside from the sculptures, be sure to check out the murals, gardens, and waterfall that make up this beautiful outdoor space.

Practical Info

The museum can be found at Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid, at the overpass joining Juan Bravo and Eduardo Dato streets. It is free of charge and open all hours of the day.
