MUFO It is a space designed so that each one of your senses explodes, to stimulate your imagination and inspire your mind. A space that breaks down barriers, that invites you to travel without having to move, to savor the sounds, to listen by touch and to dream with your eyes open.
MUFO is the museum of the future. A new way of experiencing a museum, through the senses, with narratives and spaces created by the pioneering minds of experiential art.
