The Quiñones de León Museum invites you to discover the best Galician art of the 20th century, opening the doors of one of the most typical stately constructions in Galicia, an authentic pazo.
Located in the beautiful Castrelos Park, a visit to the Quiñones de León Museum in Vigo means an interesting and relaxed afternoon, whether you are travelling alone, as a couple or with children.
In total, there are 29 permanent exhibition halls. The downstairs area still offers the atmosphere of an old stately residence, with decorative art pieces from the 18th to the 20th century, as well as an impressive collection of European paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries, which include stored pieces from the Prado Museum and the former National Museum of Modern Art.
The Quiñones de León Museum also has an annexed building that holds the archaeology section, with pieces from Vigo and its surroundings ranging from the Palaeolithic to the Middle Ages.
Tips and recommendations:
Wear comfortable shoes: after visiting the Quiñones de León Museum, you can stroll through the beautiful gardens surrounding the manor house.
We’d like to highlight the Sensory Garden, a tour tailored to the needs of vision-impaired people, through tactile and olfactory stimuli, and which has received a EU cultural heritage award.
