The guidebooks say it is free to visit...but apparently not...it is free if you want to wander around. The exhibits were of little interest and signage was poor and so we did not pay to see them. We did not find our way to the Modernista Terrace - I did not see any signage - that alone may have redeemed... More

We went to Caixa forum on a Saturday morning close to opening time and it was not yet very busy. The Pixar expo was a little disappointing for our kids (12, 11 and 6). My advice is to get there early as it got very busy around 12:00 pm when we left. It was a very cheap attraction though so... More

The CaixafForum is located at the bottom of Montjuic and the magic fountain. The building is an old textil factory with a very modernist architecture. The building worth yet the detour, and is accessible freely. Rooftop is a must. The place has been converted in a cultural centre. Price to access the expositions seems to be democratic. -Pixar 25 years-... More

The architecture of the building is what strikes you at first glance!..an interesting flight of stairs takes you inside the building and you wonder..how cool is that!..well this is just the beginning...the exhibits inside are equally captivating. Totally worth a visit.

Fabulous! Great exhibits plus interactive stuff for little ones--or adults. Loved the variety of art presented and the architecture of the building itself.

Excellent exhibitions, not only paínts, but photography, archeology, architecture, and others. All these inside a modernist building, first a factory, then a police station, and now a Exhibition Center. Entry costs about 5$. There're conferences, concerts, as well as other activities. Besede Plaza España and Catalonian National Museum of Arts, it deserves a visit.

This was by far my favorite exhibit. It made me very compassionate to the plight of those who live in war torn countries. I also enjoyed the modern presentations throughout the museum.

It is an interesting museum with different temporal exhibitions. Apart of the exhibitions, you can also visit the building, which has a great architecture.

I visited the Caixa Forum as part of a conference meeting and unfortunately cannot comment on the exhibition. However, I had the opportunity to explore the building itself which is absolutely worth a visit. It is an impressive example of industrial design from the early 20th century. It was originally build as a textile factory and only reopened as a... More

We went to the CaixaForum specifically to see the Sorolla Exhibition. Sorolla is one of our favorite painters and there were many wonderful paintings in the exhibition. Most of them were from the Sorolla Museum in Madrid, which we visit often.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
