Small museum but free & definitely worth a visit. Has a fantastic Buddhist Sand Mandala-permanent feature-that the Dalai Lama himself agreed could be kept which is extremely rare. Great free trips also available at the Tourist Information next door-booking advisable-informative guide!

More an art gallery than a museum. Good mix of local artists and different periods. Some interesting contemporary photographs as well as some religious works. Worth a visit.

What a great museum which is really principally an art gallery. A broad range of artwork from mediaeval gothic, through early 20th century and then modern art. We especially enjoyed the Bolvari paintings. Definitely worth a visit!

All this and it is entirely free! There did appear to be more paintings of various genres on show than anything else but it was beautifully laid out

This was on our list of places to visit to see what had changed from the previous year. Although there were quite a few changes, the ones that had not were still interesting even though we remembered some.

Super show by Pollenca. Make sure you see the sand painting,forget the real name, which was authorised by the Delai Lama when he visited Mallorca. He sent two priestes over to do it as a thank you fopr his reception
