That continuous fight between Muslims and Christians is the result of a charming jumble that is perfectly reflected by this museum.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
When you visit the city of Murcia, it's easy to understand that the culture of this region stems from the emergence and the miscegenation of a good number of cultures and religions. Well in to the Middle Ages, it was mainly Christians and Muslims who fought for this territory, which made way for an eclectic culture that draws from all sources. In order to capture this whole mixture in one place, this museum known as the MUBAM was founded in 2005 to show the native artistic initiatives of the city, and the region of Murcia. Spanning a temporal space that starts in the 16th century and finishes in the 20th, you'll find regional and even local artistic trends that share the same place as works by the popular and famous Murillo.
