CAC Museum

Spain > Malaga

What is the CAC Museum?

The Centro de Arte Contemporaneo, aka CAC, is situated next to the Guadalmedina river in Malaga’s shabby-chic Soho neighbourhood, surrounded by eye-catching street art.

In fact, savvy graffiti fans will notice a massive Shepard Fairey mural watching over the museum directly behind the building. The 40-foot-long red and black work, which depicts a woman with her hands folded in front of her, is titled ‘Paz y Libertad’ (peace and freedom).

The CAC, an Art Deco-esque triangular warehouse and former wholesale market, is home to rotating exhibitions showcasing modern Spanish and international art - often with an offbeat bent.

Since it’s not directly in the city centre (it’s about a ten-minute walk from the port), this museum is usually left off of tourists’ itineraries. But that’s all the more reason to include it in yours - especially since it has free entry for all!

Allow about an hour to take in all the art here. And if you’re feeling peckish, grab a table at Oleo, a popular Mediterranean sushi bar attached to the museum.
