Overview

In the historical heart of Naples, the three floors of the 19th-century Palazzo Donnaregina host the Madre · Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina: 7.200 m2 of exhibition spaces, with site-specific installations, as well as works from the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. The building, whose name comes from the Swabian Monastery of Santa Maria Donnaregina (13th century) was restored and refurbished as a museum to a design by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza Veira in 2005. Today it offers to its public, next to the permanent and temporary exhibition paths, a library, a mediatheque, a bookshop/cafeteria.

This museum is a nice, peaceful, quiet escape in bustling, noisy Naples. It is a nice change from traditional Italian art. The museum is small and quiet. Admission on Mondays is free, so worth a visit.

We were recommended this place in numerous apps and websites and it really did disappoint. The so-called art was mostly just vanity projects by jumped up tossers. However the very few actual art pieces that were there were good. Only go to this place if...More

I saw a collection from Pompei exhibition and the permanent show. I liked both works of art and architecture. I saw a lack of wayfinding, especially for exits and terrace roof door. Good curatorship and service. Worth a visit!
