About us

The Helga de Alvear Museum is a public space dedicated to contemporary art, experimentation and community development. Its foundations are based on the Helga de Alvear Foundation, a non-profit public-private cultural entity created in 2006 with the aim of promoting and supporting the Museum's mission as a vehicle to bring contemporary art closer to today's society and to future generations. .

Corporate information


The award-winning studio Tuñón Arquitectos was in charge of creating this tailor-made space to house the Helga de Alvear Collection in Cáceres. The rehabilitation and museographic adaptation of the rehabilitated modernist building known as the Casa Grande was followed by the construction of a new building that has been awarded international architecture prizes. The Museum occupies the imaginary line that separates the historic center of Cáceres, a World Heritage Site, from the most modern part of the city, thus creating a fluid communication channel between the past and the present.
