Hit and especially miss. Most is a waste of your time. Some is nice to see. The scale balances to the negative unfortunately.

Included as part of the ARTICKETBCN, MACBA features a thoroughly underwhelming collection further marred by the fact that during our visit the workers were on strike for unfair labor practices. Although slightly more impressive than the CCCB which was also ‘supposedly’ included on the Pass...More

Friendly striking staff on a picket line explained that entrance was free because of their industrial action, so we paid into the strike fund instead (completely voluntarily, no pressure). We were gripped by the excellent exhibition on forensic architecture.

The place is nice, the museum is bright and big, there was free entrance - which I'm glad there was, wouldn't have wanted to pay for this. There was very little variety, and felt like very little art. The first floor was a mix of...More

This is not a museum of art. It is a collection of propaganda displays and materials. Very disappointed in it. Do not recommend.

Highly recommended, it was free entrance as well not sure if it's because of the city festival at the time. The shop is worth a visit too.

Although I like conceptual art the exhibition we saw really didn't work for me. However the building itself is an excellent example of modern architecture and is a pleasure to walk around.

Check out their temporary expos here and you might find something you want to see. I did and it was a good visit. The building is not one of Barcelona's best, but it's in the middle of an old historic neighborhood. A magnet for art...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

I remember them having a coat check but don't think the space would be big enough for large luggage. However, the docents were very nice so I would call to confirm with them?
