The building is beautiful architecturally and with lovely viesws, Sadly the art inside was not worth the 8 euro entry. I had been attracted by the description of one exhibition. 6 paintings does not make an exhiibtion. Both exhibition floors are relatively small. Give it...More

This a fine new gallery but it could do with a loan of a semi permanent collection to make a visit worthwhile.

There are so many ways to enjoy the Centro Botin. We went o an exhibition there, but most memorable was simply exploring the exterior of the building itself. It was particularly wonderful to climb to the viewing verandah and look over the city in the...More

The building is amazing on the outside and lends itself to extraordinary photos. The museum on the inside could be missed. We paid and entered and the art was weird! Skip that!

A building that pretends to be cutting edge but it is not. Nice views from the outside which you can access without pay. Not very important in the contemporary art museum circuit. Can see the surroundings and avoid the exhibitions.
