A very nice museum with much contemporary figurative art. You can look at it all in peace as there are not many people. Very nice. Worthwhile. Just a few yards from the Picasso museum.

This little museum is housed in an 18th century palace. We came for a concert of Argentine music (which was lovely) and then toured the two floors of the museum. The contemporary works on display when we attended were prize-winners of the Art Renewal Center...More

This museum is a real hidden gem! It was recommended to us by an artist sitting next to us on the plane. It is a small museum around the corner from the Picasso Museum. The paintings and the sculptures are VERY realistic - almost photographs....More

As stated in another report, this is only a few minutes from the Picasso museum. It is saved out over 4 floors and there is no sense of pressure to move quickly. The art styles are markedly different and includes sculptures and photographs through to...More

The MEAM is located very close to the Picasso Gallery. The entrance contains a few interesting sculptures but is not very enticing so I was a bit dubious about it. As I wandered around the collection housed in a somewhat run down palace over three...More

Really pulled together a huge collection of work around the theme and set that out comfortably in a nicely proportioned space in an interesting building. It was quiet and relaxing in contrast to the Picasso museum just around the corner which is great but busy.

Museum situated in a very interestingly looking building - there's much more to lay eye on than just canvases. Generally paintings show a great asset of artists technical skills, most of them are portraits what makes the exhibition accessible for everyone. Museum itself isn't big,...More

We were here at the opening so almost all alone. We really enjoyed the museum - and the building is beautiful. Only be aware that the museum is a really small one.

We visit this small museum every time we are in Barcelona. The exhibits are well worth a visit as is the building itself. It is located very close to the Picasso museum. It does not have large crowds so one can easily enjoy the artworks...More

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.
