Totally recommended museum. For a very cheap ticket you have a wide collection of contemporary sculptures. Permanent collection and temporary exhibitions that surprised us. Good quality artists. If you go to Barcelona we also recommend you Can Framis (contemporary printings), from the same fundation.

Very interactive museum that's set out in a very intelligent way. Went with two very energetic children who were entranced with the exhibits for two hours. Definitely worth doing. Adults are €3, students and over 65's 1€ and children free.

There are a lot of art foundations... But the fundacio Vila Casas is my favourite...everytime I come to the costa Brava or Barcelona á visit to the musea is a ' piece de resistance' of my 'feel good' experience

This is a big surprise museum with lots of modern sculptures to discuss with your family, some you'll like, some not, as is always the case. Only 3€ for an entrance and with that you get a discount for the other two musea in Palafrugell.
