Caixaforum MadridCurrently Closed
Take an old out of use electrical station. Plop several new floors atop it. Slap a green vertical garden (of 15,000 plants) up one side. Scatter a few moody looking sculptures about. Stick a trippy white staircase in the centre. Glam it up with interior decoration that looks like something out of a futuristic dream. And Viola – you’ve got what is one of Madrid’s most visited museum and cultural centres. Its temporary exhibits can feature everything from theatre, movies, concerts and family centric workshops. Somehow it all works, and it’s one of the best examples of industrial architecture in the world.

Beautiful building with impressive covered walkway entry and a vertical garden in front of it. The Disney's animation exposition was very fascinating. Try to enter and go to the first floor through the steps that are an experiment of geometry and steel.
Nice little museum. Usually has several exhibitions. Amazing vertical garden at the front court, which gets all the attention!
This review is for the exterior of the building. The architecture of the building is awesome and the plant wall is worth coming to look at alone. Didn’t go inside the building so I can’t speak towards the facilities. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth checking out the plant wall for something unique you aren’t likely to find many other places.
Brilliant exhibition/cultural events space, within the Golden Triangle of Art, adds a bit of fresh air, modern experience.
Only went to a small free exhibition on children's book illustrations which was great. The building itself is stunning. It seems to hover in the air on a huge plate steel base. With a polished steel interior to top it off. Very modern.
