Went to visit the Le Brun exhibition from the Louvre. Lots of staff running around but none could be bothered to sell me a ticket so I will go elsewhere.

The museum is located in the old Casarramona textile factory, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch who combined the modernism style with functionality of the building that was inspired by medieval castles. Today it is premier arts and cultural center with a programme filled with music, arts, poetry and literary events and a celebrated contemporary art collection.

I love modernist architecture, I love barcelona and I appreciate good museums, art and architecture. While generalisations are always bad it is probably fair to say that the standard in what ever barcelona does is typically really quite high (and I am not even a spaniard/Catalan). I also heart a lot about La Caixa as almost a "world class institution"... More

The exhibitions here are real exhibitions interesting for the locals as well. If you are looking for actual art and historical exhibitions that are something new, then this is the place to go. Certainly no Louvre, but among the best Barcelona has to offer.

Always interesting exibitions. There are six or seven exhibition rooms with different exibitions. Always something interesting. The building is also very nice.

Well worth a visit, this Forum is part of Barcelona’s well deserved reputation as a city of culture and arts. The artefacts from the Egyptian period, many borrowed from the Le Louvre for the first – and possibly last time – are particularly interesting, especially the carved statues, some of which weighed five tons

There were two temporary exhibitions on when I visited. One was of experimental modern works that really were not to my taste. The second was devoted to exploring the role of animals in the cultural & religious life of ancient Egypt. This exhibition might have been interesting if the descriptions and explanations had been available in English as well as... More

Its close to Font Magica Montjuic, its a bit small but the best park is that you can go the roof which is a bit buit in waves, Also there are regular expositions. The children use to gather there and pratice dance moves in front of it.

We went here to see the vertical garden outside. It is so cool to see and photograph. We went inside the caixa forum to check out the cool interior and gift shop. We didn't go into any exhibits. Don't forget to take a pee break here. You won't regret it😜

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
