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

We visited this amazing place because it was next to MNAC and free with the Barcelona Card. It turned out to be the best gallery / museum surprise of our trip. There was an incredible puppetry and animation exhibition in August that went on for room after room and kept us captivated. There was so much to take in. This... More

I went here on a sunday afternoon and it was a free entrance for all the exhibitions. I would strongly recommend the big bang data exhibition! It concerns everyone living in the 21st century and gives perspective into modern life. There is also free wi-fi in the building.

The exhibition on big data was brilliant it makes you sit back and question all the data that is being collect. As to the other exhibitions I found these to be very weird and freaky as it was about bones and death etc.

The big bang data exhibition excellently shows the background of our daily life data usage: social media, weather control, the news...the data analysis of everything we see around is put together with interesting videos, installations and diagrams.

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.

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.
