Description

Positioned in the heart of Madrid, a 1900 building that once housed the Mahou beer brewery now accommodates this innovative cultural space. The building is the work of José López Salaberry, and the first thing that will grab your attention is its façade. A large glass and metal beam enclosing the café has been added to the original brickwork front. Inside, its more than 3500 square metres are distributed over six levels consisting of two exhibition rooms – one of which is a spectacular double height space located beneath the pedestrian square, multifunction rooms, a publication storeroom, a restoration laboratory, warehouses, café and offices. The exhibition rooms were launched with the “Iceberg Effect” show, a retrospective of the ABC Collection that was conceived in 1891 and continued to grow thereafter. In addition to the conservation, study and public display of the ABC Collection, the new museum is a living space and a home for such disciplines as comics and animation, welcoming both specialists and the general public alike.
