The last time I visited my home country, I visited the Contemporary Art Museum and "enjoyed" the exhibition that was on at the time, referred to as: Primer Proforma 2010 Badiola Euba Prego. 30 exercises, 40 days, 8 hours a day. Made by artists: Txomin Badiola, Jon Mikel Euba and Sergio Prego. The exhibition can be viewed from 30 January until June 6, whose inauguration will be held on April 10 and is in Halls 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Musac Leon. I don't understand modern art that much, and it got me a bit down, being that obvious that I did not like anything. The problem is that it really is very difficult to understand, but Express your opinion yourselves looking at the pictures and videos that I made. But then you have to understand the exposure as it tries to carry out the work of 3 artists and 15 volunteers ve will work on exercises that are requested by artists for 40 days and 8 hours a day. The work will be totally isolated for concentration, participants must be volunteers willing to work for 6 weeks, working 8 hours a day.
This museum is located opposite the Temple Castle, in the "House of the Shields" . This building gets its name because of the numerous coats of arms and weapons that can be seen on the facade. The museum has two floors and 4 rooms, where you can see various objects related to the history of radio (microphones, old radios, receivers ...) as well as posters and photographs. There are also listening rooms, radio workshop, library on the subject, shop, etc.. The strange thing about the museum is that the developer is Luis del Olmo, and there is a room that is completely dedicated to him, and another to his radio show "Players". To me it is an interesting museum, other than the collection of old radios. There are other interesting things to see in Ponferrada, including the Castle, or the Museum of Bierzo. The regular ticket costs € 2.80, and € 1 for children under 18 years. It is open From October to April-11-14h and 16-19h-May to September: 11-14h and 17-20.30h, Don't come on a Monday because it will be closed. -Sunday and holidays: 11-14h. Free admission on those days.
Astorga has many remains from Roman times (it was the old "Asturica Augusta") which are housed in this interesting museum, located in the heart of the city. The museum is in the Roman building called "The Ergastula" which was fully renovated and expanded with the construction of two brand new floors. The building is listed as a National Monument. The exhibition includes important findings from the archaeological excavations that constitute the history of the city. Open on weekdays (except Monday) from 11.00 to 14.00 and 16.00 to 18.00 and holidays from 11.00 to 14.00. Admission is € 2.50. Just opposite is also another vestige of this era, Romana Square, where you can find the Domus del Mosaico. It has free admission and is worth a look.
The Cathedral Museum of Astorga is surprising in size. It has a large number of ecclesiastical parts that denote the city's importance in the past and also its variety of historical and artistic wealth. The small room with old "Maragotos" costumes, jewels and accessories is interesting. It's accessed through a side door in the atrium of the Cathedral and is in the former School of the Cathedral, the Library and the Archive. You can access the Cathedral through the Senate.
