    Definitely an interesting museum to visit. Be sure to check out the replica Keith Haring mural outside (you don't have to buy a ticket to see it).

    Catch a break from the downtown heat with some local contemporary art: the building itself justifies a visit. Whilst collections vary in quality, there is always more than one so you can't go wrong.

    Shame both ground and top floors were closed when I visited, made €10 seem a bit steep. But the building is beautiful and a few pieces were really great. Wifi code included on your ticket.

    The building itself is really cool. The art is kind of weird, but worth checking out if you're interested in contemporary art. Free wifi.

    When it's closed you will meet hundreds of young people on the plaza dancing to hiphop or skateboarding or just hanging around and drinking beer. Awesome!

    A meeting place for the city's skaters and a top-class modern art museum. The exhibition by Konrad and Dorothee Fischer, in particular, is worth visiting and the building itself is a work of art. Read more

    Located at the Raval, this museum is a great example of Richard Meier's architecture. Always changing expositions of modern art. Is worth the visit.

    Designed by New York architect Richard Meier and established in the inner city Raval neighbourhood, it´s likened to the largest Russian doll; it’s a work of art that contains many more inside. Read more

    Great contemporary museum. A lot of different exhibitions and mesmerising architecture inside. Chill outside and watch the skaters do their tricks while you wait outside.

    Fascinating exhibits and they have guided tours for free (in english too)! Admission is worth the price. There are nice info pamphlets for each exhibit too.

    They say this is the hot skateboard spot. Being from Venice CA I'm spoiled cause 3 visits left me super unimpressed. Oh well - the locals clearly love it. A couple of cool friendly skate shops nearby.

    Also known as MACBA, this is one of Barcelona's best museums. Has impressive collections from the mid-20th century to present. Stop by the Special Collections and Library Reading rooms.

    For those who prefer a more modern twist to art, be sure to make your way to the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, also known as the MACBA.

    i was just about to loose all my trust of art institutions generally, but MACBA gave me an example that Museums still can have an important role in my life and in the society.

    You might find some interesting temporary exhibitions. The last floor is hard to digest though! Conceptual stuff is not easy for "normal people". Maybe the curators could have made it lighter?

    If you like museums ask for artpass. If you think you will come back within a year buy the yearly pass by 15€.

    Retain your entry ticket pass, as it contains the wifi password for the free "MACBA" network to connect to. Lockers available which require €1 deposit (returned when you empty the locker).
