About the Museum
The Fundación Juan March is an active, family-run cultural heritage institution created by the financier Juan March Ordinas in 1955 with the aim of promoting humanistic and scientific culture in Spain. Currently the Fundación holds a program of free cultural activities organized on a long-term basis at its three venues. This programming reflects the Foundation’s commitment to the high quality of its offerings and its aim to benefit the communities that its venues serve.
The Foundation produces exhibitions as well as concerts and lecture series. Its headquarter in Madrid houses a library devoted to contemporary Spanish music and theater. It owns and operates the Museo de Arte Abstracto Español, in Cuenca and the Museu Fundación Juan March, in Palma de Mallorca. Its Center for Advanced Study in the Social Sciences (Centro de Estudios Avanzados en Ciencias Sociales), which has granted nearly one hundred doctoral degrees to Spanish students, is currently incorporated within the Instituto mixto Carlos III/Juan March de Ciencias Sociales at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid.
