Juan March Foundation Museum
Museum in Palma
This part of Palma is closely associated with modernity. Those with an appreciation for contemporary and 20th-century art should make a point to visit the Juan March Foundation Museum, which boasts an impressive collection featuring works by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Juan Gris, Antoni Tàpies, and Miquel Barceló. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum offers temporary exhibitions, some of which are curated in-house, while others are borrowed from its namesake institution in Madrid.
The museum is housed within the Can Gallard del Canyar, a traditional 17th-century mansion acquired by the March family in 1916 to establish their residence in Palma. The building was meticulously restored under the direction of architect Guillem Reynés at the family’s behest. Upon entering, you’ll be captivated by the building’s entrance and magnificent staircase, transporting you into one of Palma’s enchanting realms.
The Juan March Foundation Museum extends its hospitality to guided tours and workshops, as well as hosting conferences, music concerts, and various educational activities catering to schools and universities.
