Palma Museums Trip One day . A perfect day

Although Mallorca is a great place to soak up the sun and drink Sangria, for
those history and culture buffs out there, the island is rich in activities
to stimulate the mind. Why not take a museum tour to discover the rich past
of this small holiday island? The Mallorca Museum, situated near the
Mallorca Cathedral, is one of the finest museums in the Balearics. The
beautiful building located in the Palau Ayamans is almost four centuries
old, and houses artifacts, and medieval and Baroque Paintings. One of the
most visited spots on the island is the Museu d'Art Espanyol Contemporani,
home to impressive compilations of works done by famous and relatively
unknown artists. Continue to another fine contemporary art museum, Es
Baluard - Modern & Contemporary Art Museum, situated in the renaissance city
wall. This extensive body of art is compiled mostly of a private collection
belonging to businessman Pere Serra, and features impressive works from
famed artists Picasso, Miró, Tàpies, Barceló, among many others. For a
history lesson about the island itself, head over to the Historic Military
Museum of the Balearic Islands in the castle of San Carlos, which features
fascinating chronological exhibits of the military history of the Bay of
Palma. The facility even houses a scale model of The Battle of Bailén.
Finally, explore the original home of Joaquin Torrens Lladó at the House
Museum J.
