  • This place is really great, inside and out. It’s got all things amazing art to look at on the inside, and incredible skateboarders to watch outside once you’re done visiting. It’s good coming in earlier in the morning to get more quiet time. Perfect place to visit on a sunny day!! :)
  • This museum is an absolute must for people who enjoy arts! On Saturdays between 4pm - 8pm it's free admission! The museum exhibits so much incredible works. It has 3 levels and all of them tell their own story. Tip: take a good amount of time out of your day to explore the works, because there are so many of them! :)

  • While the friendly skaters outside is one reason to hang out in that square, the exhibition space is just as good. I was glad to check their exhibit on postcolonialism and it was quite well curated. I think the space itself (esp with the great bookshop attached to it) is the best museum I've seen in this city.
  • Really enjoyed the timeline format of the MACBA show, which takes you through modern art phases in the museum. Great large scale exhibits and walk through/interactive experiences. The pop art and psychedelic hall was my favorite.
