Museum of Modern Art

The new Museum of  Contemporary Art of the Region of Murcia (Mucam) project was presented yesterday in Cartagena. According to the Murcian president,  Ramon Luis Valcárcel, " this is the star cultural project of this legislature ".

The Mucam will be on the site of  the old bullring, behind the hospital of Marín, and will house the restored Roman amphitheatre of Cartagena. 

The Council of Culture will summon  international aid to  designate the director of the Mucam and define the  project. 

The cost of construction will be approximately 22 million euros.  In addition to  exhibition halls, the Mucam will have an audio-visual conference  hall, a bookstore, a shop, a library, a cafeteria, a restaurant, and a facility for 1,200 people.
