  • What evil are in Barcelona with the museums! When I have visits from foreign friends I don't know where to take them because it embarrassed me so low level that exist in museums. 4 things to justify the payment of the entrance. Of course I do not recommend it at all. It makes me sad, but it is that I go out even angry because so much apathy cannot be justified.

  • Thanks for pointing this out on your website. Closed due to industrial action, but yippee the shop was open.  more »
  • Went there to see some pictures and a look at old photos from Egypt and some first hand stories of the troubles in that area.  more »

  • I really enjoyed my experience. I was surprised by the social justice focus of the museum. Thought provoking in many ways. Especially since the workers are on strike. Definitely a must see in my book.
  • I really enjoyed the space here. All the action happening around the building contributes to this place getting 5 stars. The place is one of Barcelonas biggest public skate spots. The museum is a very interesting building as well. Definitely worth a look
  • Would have hoped to see greater variety of art exhibits. Several exhibits were political in nature. The building is interesting enough. There was a strike going on at the time of visit.
  • I'm an art geek, so all my gallery reviews are going to be glowing, or amusing. This place has something for everyone, including tech, science, governance and crime geeks. The Forensic Architecture exhibition was enthralling. Loved every minute of my time in the space. Bright, cool, clean. Such a great show.
  • A true masterpiece of modern architecture, that keeps you connected with the outside through transparent glass facade. Besides that the museum created a public space in which you can see the youth enjoy their time in day sunlight.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
