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.

When you are in the street you hardly notice the bulding. If you take the escalator down you suddenly find yourself in a very modern arts centre with lots of different activities and films. Ok you must pay for most of that but you can wonder around for free. If you take the elavator up to the roof, you can... More

This is our second time attending an art exhibition at the Caixa Forum. Excellent space, a great Art Nouveau (Modernista) building. Not only is the building interesting but the exhibitions are well curated. There is a rooftop terrace which is also great space... Easy to be there... easy to get to.... and interesting shows! Off the beaten track of the... More

This modern exhibition site is in a gorgeous Modernista building with contemporary additions and houses world-class temporary shows. These included works on loan from the Prado or MoMA in NYC. They have great public programs, a book shop and cafe. A must-see for any art lover visiting Barcelona!

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.
