  • This is a small museum that is not known in the circuits, very close to the Picasso Museum, in the heart of the Gothic quarter. It contains a small collection of painting and sculpture of realistic style, really interesting. Highly recommended.

  • This is a wonderful gallery for figurative art, particularly hyperrealist paintings. If that's your thing then this is an unmissable stop in Barcelona.
  • Beautiful collection. It has an emphasis on photorealism, alongside some sculpture. As someone with only a casual interest in modern art I would have appreciated a little more info to contextualise some of the pieces. Despite the, most of the pieces are fascinating to examine and consider. On top of the permanent collection there's a temporary exhibition floor that's included as part of standard entrance. Well worth the fee!
  • At 9.00 euros a good deal for a small but well curated museum.
  • The best exhibit here in barcelona. If you have a few spare hours i would 100% recommend.
  • Plenty of hyper-realist paintings - good place if you're into that
