  • I went at 14:00. There were few crowds, so I was able to appreciate it slowly and carefully. It was very interesting with exhibits such as Basquiat's art and old false HIV advertisements. There was also a booth about war, which was very thought-provoking and a reminder that things shouldn't be repeated. 11€ and entrance fee are also conscientious. It seems that there is a free day, so if you want to keep costs down, I recommend checking online early.
  • Key spot to understand Catalan and Spanish art and culture. There are also temporary exhibits with worldwide famous pieces! These pics are from 08/2022, so art pieces might change🖼 Pro tip from a local: Make sure you book your ticket on Saturdays (free afternoons, gets vvvv busy) and don’t stay in the area too long, because it gets a bit dangerous in the evening/night!
  • Adult ticket price is 11 euros. 3 floors, there are interesting installations inside and the building itself is very bright and beautiful. If you have free time it is worth visiting
  • Big and nice museum of modern art. Some of art work I personally found to be quite not impressive but some were quite good. As any museum it is a bit boring and cold but no surprise. On Sundays we could book a free entries, so thanks a lot for that ! To enter is fast and easy and not too crowded and quite lots of space.
  • Needles to say, it’s a must visit museum in Barcelona. 👌 Gorgeous building, well planned exhibitions, not too crowded. English guides are available and the app audio is really good.
