Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA)

For an excellent permanent collection and superb travelling exhibitions of contemporary art, MACBA in El Raval, Barcelona, is highly recommended.

The stunning Richard Meier-designed MACBA is an El Raval landmark.
Superb space. Even for skateboarders.

If you get contemporary art MACBA is your type of place. Even for we philistines, some exhibitions are mind-blowing, and the permanent collection has some gems too.

The permanent collection is strong too.

The superb Richard Meier-designed space is a bonus, and even the gift shop is well curated. Recommended.

Buy the Barcelona Museum Pass or Art Passport and gain priority entry to Fundació Joan Miró, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC), the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB),the Museu Picasso, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, and Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), and avoid the queues.
