Owner description: The European Museum of Modern Art , MEAM, exhibits the finest Contemporary Figurative Art. It is owned by TheFoundation of Arts and Artists, and the purpose is to promote and diffuse Figurative Art of the 20th and 21st Centuries. The Foundation’s claim is to find a new contemporary language without denying tradition by progressing into the new Century. Moreover, the Foundation of Arts and Artists, organizes each year the Figurativas Painting and Sculpture Awards, and with the wesbiteFigurativas en Red opens a window with the artworks of the Contemporary Figurative artists. The MEAM is currentlly located at the Gomis Palace, in the middle of the streets of the Born in Barcelona, a neighborhood where culture is always present and reflects the charm of the old part of the city, an area that knew how to mix tradition and modernity, becoming a requiered visit for the tourits interested in the Monumental Barcelona. The MEAM is different from other Contemporary Art museums because it houses living artists who created Figurative Art. These artworks are hardly seen in other museums, collections or entities, to whom the word Contemporary is identified by experiment and abstraction.

By far the most interactive and interesting collection of modern art, represented in Barcelona. Amazing stuff will capture the lens of your eye, for which you should definitely save some extra hours for your visit there. It’s small by size - huge by impression!

MEAM's collection is truly amazing and the gallery itself is extremely well organized, especially for a considerably smaller venue. You might even enjoy climbing the stairs while reading inspiring quotes from artists. We went there right after Picasso Museum and frankly enjoyed MEAM so much more for it's freshness and energy. Both venues are close to each other, so really recommended as a package.

I have to admit, I've never been to an art museum before, therefore my opinion may differ from others.
My 10 year old daughter wanted to visit, so we duly obliged. Having found the location using our Tripadvisor City Guide, we were all pleasantly surprised by the variety of different works on show.
Maybe not the biggest of displays but very interesting and in a beautiful area of the old town.

A really short walk from the long lines at the Picasso museum you can find this quite new museum, showing figurative art. It´s located in a beautiful house where they also give conserts now and then.
