Our first day in Barcelona was capped by an evening at the museum and a classical guitar concert in one of the halls. Delightful and charming and civilized. Treat yourself and go.

This is a lovely place to visit. It’s like a visit to the the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London and every painting you like or even love! Don’t bother with the long boring queues for the Picasso museum if you...More

Much smaller than the MOMA, and less crowded than the Picasso museum across the street, the MEMA is one of the pearls in Barcelona. I can't remember a museum where most of the exhibits there were interesting, amazing or funny like in MEAM. We have...More

If you are going to Picasso museum, definitely stop by. Wide range of modern art types, including sculpture and painting. More accessible than some other modern art museums. I found a Groupon for this museum which was a deal. Decent amount of nudes so might...More

Even if contemporary figurative art is not your cup of tea, you should go to this lovely site for the Friday & Saturday recitals that take place in the 18th century grand salon (classical music on Saturdays, and blues on Fridays). It's intimate, unpretentious yet...More

Surprising collection of modern art in old town of Barcelona, close to the Picasso Museum. Excellent works of hyper realistic art exposed in a beautifully restaured palace right in the Borne (old part of Barcelona). It is worth a visit and so far it is...More

We hace visited Meam 6 times in 3 years. Impressive and very personal collection of contemporary figurative art. Lots of hyper realists. Our favorite in BCN although none of the top world famous artists.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

There are modern artists there. I recommend Istvan Sandorfi, who represents hyperrealism.
