Madrid Travel Guide: Museum of Outdoor Sculpture - Museo de Esculturas al Aire Libre

An unconventional museum, the Museum of Outdoor Sculpture, this '70s space at the junction of the Castellana with C/Juan Bravo was the brainchild of engineers José Antonio Fernández Ordoñez and Julio Martínez Calzón.

Designing a bridge across the avenue, they thought the space underneath would be a good art venue, for the Museum of Outdoor Sculpture, and sculptor Eusebio Sempere convinced fellow artists to donate their work.

All the major names in late 20th-century Spanish sculpture are represented at the Museum of Outdoor Sculpture - including Pablo Serrano, Miró, Chillida - and much of their work is spectacular, especially the dynamic stainless-steel Mon per a infants ('A world for children') by Andreu Alfaro and the spectacular cascade by Sempere that forms a centrepiece.
