CaixaForum Zaragoza

Today we tell you what you can find in the CaixaForum Zaragoza, the new museum of the city. This space aims to become a new tourist attraction thanks to its exhibitions, noted for their variety and quality. It is the seventh museum of this kind that Obra Social La Caixa has opened in Spain.

Located on Anselmo Clavé Avenue, next to the Portillo Train Station, this building will surprise you at first sight. Created by architect Carme Pinos, both internal and external structure represents a tree with a central trunk and the top, formed by two geometric figures of 800 and 400 meters, which is where all the activities are developed.

The materials used are mainly glass, steel and wood. Spaces play a very important role to give bond to the different areas of the building. The outer part is made of punched steel panels that draw figures of leaves. At night the building has its own lighting in blue tones that highlight each of these silhouettes.

The building is equipped with two main exhibition halls, an auditorium with 250 seats and two classrooms that can accommodate 70 people each, a classroom-workshop for family activities and a cafe which offers various types of daily menus.

Among the services offered on this exhibition center, there are lockers for backpacks and audio guides in English, Spanish and French that allow the visitor to know the details of every corner of the building.
