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

Being a lover of contemporary art I had high hopes for this place based on previous reviews. However, on reading the pretentious statements on the walls of the stairs leading into the exhibition my expectations dropped... "We must achieve a language to create a genuine...More

Our first day in Barcelona was capped by an evening at the museum and a classical guitar concert in one of the halls. Delightful and charming and civilized. Treat yourself and go.

This is a lovely place to visit. It’s like a visit to the the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London and every painting you like or even love! Don’t bother with the long boring queues for the Picasso museum if you...More

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...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 neighbourhood
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.

Hi! Yes, you can ask at the entrance for it and we will keep your things while you visit the exhibitions.
