  • Unknown that upset some, but pleases those that don't have to jostle side by side with the crowd of tourists. Love his collection of realism and hyper-realism, and try to get on the evening of music, whether country or Jazz, always very feelingly and truly. Five out of five.

  • 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!
  • 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
  • Very nice museum, the building by itself is very interesting and collection is great!
  • Great collection in a beautiful space. Worth a visit!
