Admission tickets for Park Güell, one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, typically sell out quickly; however, by buying tickets online in advance, you can guarantee entry, avoid the long lines, and save time on the day. Instead of queueing in the heat, explore Park Güell—including the Dragon Staircase, Hypostyle Room, and more—at your own pace.

I really enjoyed MEAM -- it well exceeded my expectations; and, located just around the bend and a negligible few footsteps away from Museu Picasso, provided an excellent, exciting, and contemporary counterpoint to the great 20C master's work. First, a disclaimer: I don't know about you...but so much of what passes for "contemporary art" leaves me flat-out cold and bewildered. Happily, MEAM was a surprising antidote to all that flotsam. Here, exciting and emotive figurative art holds sway! While the museum's building (a former villa) was interesting in and of itself, its permanent and temporary exhibits of contemporary figurative art drew me in. The temporary exhibit (sadly, however, finished as of 1 December) of works by Pedro del Toro, a brilliant and accomplished contemporary Spanish artist, was just as riveting as some of El Greco's and Rubens's priceless figurative paintings that I later admired in the Prado Museum. I trust that MEAM will continue to offer shows of similarly high quality in the future, and that modern European painters will continue to excite!

The museum has a small but interesting permanent collection (1 floor) plus another 1-and-a-bit floors of temporary space — maybe worth an hour to visit. I stayed for a concert and it was brilliant. Very enjoyable.

This was a really nice museum. It’s not particularly large but really nice modern art. There was a Julia Mathiu exhibit while I was there and it was fabulous. The building was also quite nice. I highly recommend this for about an hour stop. The sculptures were also really good. I highly recommend this for art lovers.

We kept quite busy with museums when in Barcelona, but this is one I want to recommend, it is right next to the Picasso museum, but really easy to miss as it is on a side road and maybe a little anonymous. With that said I think it is well worth a visit, and you are already in the neighbourhood, right? I think you will found at least a few pieces that you will find intriguing and interesting. I found a few favorites at least, but this of course also is the type of art that I found most interesting, but even if this is not your cup of tea, I still think you should give it a chance!

Amazing museum! Lots of cool artists. All the paintings and sculptures are astonishing and awe-inspiring from the beginning til the end. Everything is impressive. The tour can be completed in less than an hour, but we spent there more than 2hours. Highly recommend
