  • The most unique and attractive is its façade. Price of entry to the exhibition. The Fundació Antoni Tàpies is a museum located in the center of Barcelona. It is dedicated to the catalan painter Antoni Tàpies. The Foundation was founded by the artist in 1984. The idea was the of creating a Center for the study and promotion of contemporary art. It opened its doors in 1990. The building where the Museum Foundation is of modernist style, work of the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It was built between 1881 and 1885, the facade of the building combines the use of bricks with iron. It was the first of its kind to be built in the area at that time in this style. Inside, there are temporary exhibitions and some works by Tapies, including the famous "sock" at the top of the Museum.

  • We visited this place as it was covered by the Articket and would definitely not have visited this museum if we had to buy a separate ticket. The art in this museum was definitely not to my taste and ...  more »
  • Using a purchased PASS 45 euros for 3 days, giving us access to many free museums and foundations, we had the Foundation ANTONI worst. And fortunately we do not have paid quotes! Here a great moment of solitude, I first wondered if it was me who was totally impervious to Art, is the Modern Art, thus becoming an ignoramus or if by chance what I saw was not just above the daisies. I don't know what take the artists name, but there's heavy, a very heavy! And my friend was of the same opinion, being sober all both have can doubt others... A statue of a life-size hippopotamus, overcome by a girl who reads newspapers and whistles every 15 minutes, Yes, until the squiggle representing a man sex, Yes. Well I will not dwell, but frankly I do not recommend, sorry for the Hardtistes.

  • Didn't like the art here. Most pieces consist of a bunch of dirty clothes on a pile. Or: An old table with some dirt on it (yes, really)... Or a painting with the canvas facing the wall. Rubbish. The ticket was 7 EUR but permits access to 5 other museums too, so if you'd like to visit several, it may be considerable.
  • Not a huge selection of Tapies work but a nice building and normally has a visiting exhibition.
  • Terrible!!! A few photos of boats and then some things that he had left over in his garage! Go to the Picasso museum or Miró foundation, both are great, this one is a joke.
  • Beautiful place. Superb library (by appointment only). A bit weak on the support for those who do not understand Catalan (or Spanish). Anyway it is worth a visit.
  • Beautiful pieces of art but the museum is small
