  • We have visited modern art galleries in most cities we have visited, and the building here is fresh, bright and promising. However, that is about it... We arrived when it opened at 11 and the staff we...  more »
  • The Museum is almost empty. €8 place we expected better. We had never visited a little interesting Museum. I'd advise. Huge and white building architecture is modern, certainly, but inside is not worth the detour.

  • Loved the modern building and even though only one floor was open when I was there, I was impressed by what I saw. Will have to come back here
  • Sir, I am an artist&designer from India and i have an attempt to create and install ten huge sculptures in the land of Spain.This attempt is a joint venture of five or six artists(common artists) from Spain.So i want any ones help to prompt this attempt to some artists( male and female) by any media and explain them about the attempt. T he sculptures will be in metal,stone and in concrete for everlasting in the road sides,parks,beaches and in courtyards in Spain. The expenditure of the creations and installations can meet in several inexpensive method .Expecting any ones big help for this attempt. Thanks E.Rajan,No:107,Dorai building,4th cross,5th main Pappanna block,Ganga nagar,Bangalore-32 - India.
  • Right next to the CCCA, this is by far the best art gallery in Barcelona, cool, quieter than the obvious Picasso/Miro. Do use the lifts as the ramps just add milage to aching feet.
  • One floor of exhibits. Unoriginal exhibits. Great place to buy your ArticketBCN as no one should ever come here to see the collection.
  • One of the only museums open on a Monday in Barcelona. Warning: the current exhibit (Andrea Fraser downstairs, punk rock up) is very loud. Interesting stuff, but not a whole lot of bang for your ten euros.
