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.

Much smaller than the MOMA, and less crowded than the Picasso museum across the street, the MEMA is one of the pearls in Barcelona.
I can't remember a museum where most of the exhibits there were interesting, amazing or funny like in MEAM.
We have been there with young children and teenagers (14, 11, 7 and 2), and it had been really great morning to all of us.

Well I am an amateur art collector and find myself living it Barcelona for 12 months.
We found MEAM today and love the place, staff really friendly, helpful and professional. One room was closed for an art tutorial, but was opened for me to see the Lita Cabellut paintings I wanted to see. We joined and became “annual friends” there and then.
We will be back soon
Thanks for making our day, loved the place!

If you are going to Picasso museum, definitely stop by. Wide range of modern art types, including sculpture and painting. More accessible than some other modern art museums. I found a Groupon for this museum which was a deal. Decent amount of nudes so might think about that if you have children.

Even if contemporary figurative art is not your cup of tea, you should go to this lovely site for the Friday & Saturday recitals that take place in the 18th century grand salon (classical music on Saturdays, and blues on Fridays). It's intimate, unpretentious yet classy, and the artists are quite good. I tend to prefer the classical music recitals which, btw, come with tea and cookies... I did see one Jazz Manouche recital, but was disappointed by the singer. Right now there is a special exhibit of the great sculptor Grzegorz Gwiazda’s works. The MEAM is steps away from the overcrowded and disappointing Picasso museum, in a great area full of delightful boutiques and restaurants.

Surprising collection of modern art in old town of Barcelona, close to the Picasso Museum. Excellent works of hyper realistic art exposed in a beautifully restaured palace right in the Borne (old part of Barcelona). It is worth a visit and so far it is not too frequented by the tourists!
