Modern, airy building that makes use of light & space and as a varied & changing exhibits of contemporary art, the Derek Jarmon blue piece is unmissable

The architecture is light and airy from the entrance however the exhibition space over the three floors is repetitive and consequently the navigation for each floor is pschologically boring. The three concurrent exhibitions could also have been more contrasting. Nothing bad, but the curating lacked...More

All modern art can be scary, it can shock, offend, or simply bore. MACBA probably change their exhibitions frequently and in which case you might find something interesting. For me the art on show in December 2017 was a bitter disappointment. Pretentious, unskilled, lacking credibility;...More

Hit and especially miss. Most is a waste of your time. Some is nice to see. The scale balances to the negative unfortunately.

Included as part of the ARTICKETBCN, MACBA features a thoroughly underwhelming collection further marred by the fact that during our visit the workers were on strike for unfair labor practices. Although slightly more impressive than the CCCB which was also ‘supposedly’ included on the Pass...More

Friendly striking staff on a picket line explained that entrance was free because of their industrial action, so we paid into the strike fund instead (completely voluntarily, no pressure). We were gripped by the excellent exhibition on forensic architecture.

This is not a museum of art. It is a collection of propaganda displays and materials. Very disappointed in it. Do not recommend.

Highly recommended, it was free entrance as well not sure if it's because of the city festival at the time. The shop is worth a visit too.

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?
