i went three years ago here to a great exhibition about claudio magris and returned for the current piece, metamorfasis. everything glides perfectly well, a mixture of videos, art on walls, on the floor and interactive pieces. upstairs was a collection about info/data and its uses and applications which was quite mind boggling, but the works of abatract/surrealist film makers...

We bought an Articket which included this museum , so we went. I would not include this Center on the caliber of Miro or Picasso Museums. The exhibit was a horrble excuse for 'art.'. 'Metamorphoses' exhibit was as though someone had stored truckloads of bizarre props, for decades, and then decided to put it all on display. It was a... More

As with every other museum we went to in Barcelona, the staff were friendly and helpful and the exhibitions were laid out beautifully. The items they had collected were impressive and made for a very interesting afternoon.

It is a contemporary museum, so it is OK if it doesn't appeal to everybody's taste. Before you visit, you'd better check online what exhibitions are displayed at the moment and decide for yourself. When we visited it was "Metamorphosis" - bizzare, at times disturbing art of three different artists. It included puppets, dolls, films. I found them interesting and... More

We had expected more from the contemporary art centre of Barcelona. But the building is worth a visit and we also enjoyed some of the photos upstairs.

Visited here and there only seemed to be one exhibition space open. The rest was closed off. Didn't see any airy aces that the other reviewers have mentioned. Check what's open before you go in.

While taking a very long walking tour of Barcelona during which we decided to go where our senses of direction took us, we discovered the CCCB Museum. It was almost empty when we arrived so we were able to take our time and go through the museum at our pace. One of the most attractive features of the museum is... More

There was only one exhibition on when I visited so maybe check what is on first, but it was great. On the top floor, you don't realise how big the building is as you walk around the exhibition which is laid out on in chronological order and dependent on the area of Barcelona today. In Spanish, Catalan and English, you... More
