We went here around noon after visiting the Picasso Museum (few meters away). During our visit we met only few other visitors...on the one hand it made our visit more enjoyable on the other it is a shame. This fantastic museum would deserve more recognition....More

We came across this museum by accident whilst looking for the Picasso Museum, but as there was a large queue for that we went to MEAM instead. We weren't disappointed. The museum is beautifully designed, in a historic building, really well lit with atmospheric music...More

This museum is just across from the Picasso Museum but had hardly any visitors. I like art and had some time to spare so headed in and couldn't have been more delighted. After the busyness of the aforementioned museum it was delightful to have all...More

One of the most awesome museum which I've ever visited. Perfect selection of contemporary artists, looking at this pieces you realized what art is alive. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend to visit people who loves art.

MEAM is one of these places that deserve a visit, although it´s not so popular as others in Barcelona, being somehow what some would call a hidden gem. Located in the Born neighbourhood, a typical part of the city where interesting spots mix with sordid...More

The museum has a great collection, and was lovely to walk around and take in all of the art. There is a really realistic piece with a screen above the painting showing a sped up video of the artist at work, without this you would...More

Don't be discouraged if you arrive early and the gate is down, you're in the right place. It isn't well marked on the street. This is a superb collection of realist, photorealist, surrealistic paintings--mostly of the human figure, with a scattering of still life and...More

Unlike most modern art, the works in this wonderful museum are mainly figurative, often highly detailed. Some of the paintings could easily fool the eye into thinking they are photographs. Within the genre of figurative art, the works displayed, including both paintings and sculpture, encompass...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.
