Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo de Santander y Cantabria (MAS)
Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo de Santander y Cantabria (MAS) Review
The former Museo de Bellas Artes is now a bright and modern art space. Goya's portrait of absolutist king Fernando VII remains, rather incongruously; the smirking face of the lion at the king's feet clues you in to the artist's feelings toward his patron. The painting's current neighbors are a constantly rotating collection of sculptures, photography, paintings, and installations from up-and-coming artists, many of them local.
Biblioteca Menéndez y Pelayo. Next door to the Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo this library, with some 50,000 volumes, also holds the study of the scholarly writer Marcelino Menéndez y Pelayo (1856–1912), whose life is celebrated in an adjoining museum. C. Rubio 6, 39001. 942/234493 museum; 942/234534 library. Free. Library: weekdays 9–11:30. Museum: June–Sept., weekdays 10:30–1 and 6:30–8, Sat. 10:30–1; Oct.–May, weekdays 10:30–1 and 5:30–8, Sat. 10:30–1.
