  • Went with my partner and we loved the history and variety. The two featured exhibits were interesting and our visit was a great way to put all the other art we saw in Barcelona in context.  more »
  • One of the worst museums I have visited. Main floor was closed and other two were pretty much uninteresting and pretencious. Only good thing is design of building and skaters outside. Save yourself...  more »

  • 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! :)
