Although the Madrid Centre of Fundación María Crístina Masaveo Peterson (FMCMP for short) has been open since Oct 2019, this quiet, elegant art museum still feels box fresh. This discrete collection is not on many people’s radars just yet, but it’s hard to understand why, as it’s so beautiful. Maybe it’s because you are not going to see a lot of Instagram posts – strictly no photos are allowed here.

Tucked away in a side street just off the Plaza de Colón, there’s an interesting view of the controversial and emblematic office building on the corner of Calle Genova from an interior patio – I got quite excited seeing this block from a fresh angle.

Some sculptures from the Foundation’s collection are dotted around, including a spectacularly large, specially commissioned work by Jaume Plensa, that fills a small interior courtyard – worth a visit just for this spectacular piece.

This museum is free and central, and I can’t think of a better place to spend an hour! And if you got a taste for art, you can double up with a visit to the spectacular Fundación Mapfre, which is also small enough to see everything in an hour.
