The Museum of Modern Art was founded by the Provincial Council of Tarragona in 1976 to promote the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art and, likewise, to preserve, display and share its artistic heritage. To this end, a museum was set up in the old quarter of Tarragona with a library, a documentation centre and a photographic archive. The building that houses the museum is the result of joining three 18th-century houses. It was renovated by the architect Jaume Mutllo and the building as we know it today, fully equipped and restored, was opened to the public in 1991. In 2008 the Museum of Modern Art shall be updating its permanent display with a new museological project that will add a whole new didactic dimension to the presentation of the collections. To bring art closer to children and young people, the Pedagogical Service of the Museum of Modern Art provides guided tours for school parties (minimum age three years old) by appointment. The Pedagogical Service extends the range of its services every year in an attempt to involve the teaching community in transmitting knowledge about modern and contemporary art.

Great little collection including a thought-provoking Bosnian war multimedia piece and a Joan Miro tapestry. Really worth an hour of your time whilst wandering the old town.

Perfect little museum with great collection from local artist from the area. Definitely worth a visit when passing by Tarragona. Especially suitable for low budget travelers as well as it is free of charge.

A small but interesting collection of exhibits. I'm not sure if the word 'modern' in the title of this gallery has informed (or inspired) the decision makers on what should hang there or be exhibited. Much of what I saw was indeed modern, but that...More

A small museum. The exhibits are ok but not a great deal that I would class as outstanding except a Miro. You only need 1hr to visit and good for a rainy day

Access to the modern art of Tarragona.Opportunity to quietly ponder see Miro tapestry. See a video of Tarragona(main street history). In an old building with modern architecture for a relaxing contemplation. Museum - free of charge.

Worth visiting for the architecture of the building as much as the collection. It's a beautiful, cool space filled with largely unknown work by regional artists, although there is a Miro tapestry, donated to the town in thanks for the care given to his daughter...More
