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.

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.
