If you’re into art and history of Barcelona then you could give this a try. Visiting the museum takes about an hour as there are three different levels with different exhibitions. I enjoyed seeing the cool art and historical pieces, but would have appreciated a...More

A medium-sized collection of contemporary art, well worth a visit. The building is attractive and the permanent is collection is well-laid out in a series of rooms on the second floor. I am not sure I accept the conceit behind the special exhibition in the...More

Great building, lots of modern art, less crowds then most other Barcelona museums. And it's only 10 euros. What's the issue? I guess it's a museum for Catalans and Spanish and many of those are on vacation out of Barcelona in August. Not many tourists...More

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

I remember them having a coat check but don't think the space would be big enough for large luggage. However, the docents were very nice so I would call to confirm with them?
