The quality of a big city can be judged by the quality of their cultural offerings. The CCCB is an amazing place, with well thought out, detailed exhibitions and inspiring events. We just saw Busco Piso - about housing and urban development in Barcelona and Medellin. Amazing detail put into this urbanist exhibition. The spaces are large and welcoming and... More

This museum had only a few posters in English, so it wasn't really possible to make sense of it without knowing Spanish. A pitty, because it seemed like and interesting place and is part of the Articket, which I imagine many culturally interested tourists have.

We found this place by accident as the MACBA was closed on the Tuesday we planned on going (usually Mondays is the day when museums close in Barcelona) and this other museum just around the corner was open. Technically, it is not a museum but a temporary exhibits center with various levels for simultaneous expositions. I give it 3 stars... More

I took my 6 and 8 year old children to the CCCB and we spent a lovely 2 hours. The museum space is large but the number of installations is small, which worked out well with two kids who tend to complain a lot in museums. We saw the Sebald variations and the Piso Piloto exhibit, which explored the concept... More

The current exhibition was not interesting. It was a collection of installations that dealt with living in an overcrowded world or such. I left in 10 minutes because I didn't like it. Strangely, from all 6 museums of the Articked that I have visited, I counted in this museum the most visitors that really took the time looking at the... More

a great space and exemplary conversion. the CCCB provides a quality programme of cultural and creative activities and exhibitions. Its beside the better known MACBA so you can easily visit both. Dont forget to check out their programme before visiting. The space is cool in design and temperature and particularly now during the summer provides a welcome respite. During the... More

We stumbled upon this museum as we were staying nearby and were very impressed with the special exhibits. The curatorial staff did a fantastic job and I would absolutely check it out again. Visited in May 2014 - exhibits on big data and brothers quay were really good.

Having seen some other reviews on TripAdvisor, I had expecter more from this museum. It is located right next to the Museum of Contemporary Art, so very centrally located. However, the exhibits they had when I visited were not nearly as interesting as others I saw in Barcelona.

The Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) in El Raval is a great center. Exhibitions and interesting displays are always on. The center is free on Sundays and makes for a great day out in combination with visit the El Raval district.

We visited because we had the ArtTicket and this is one of the six museums that are included with the ticket. We were in El Ravel, and we heard that this is the place to see the local kids congregate and skateboard. It is. We saw the Big Data exhibit. It was fascinating. How data was created with the first... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
