The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art

Barcelona has a huge variety of museums and one of the top museums to see is The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, also known as MACBA. MACBA holds a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions throughout the year and is well-known for displaying a wide range of contemporary works.



MACBA opened in 1995 and its striking building was designed by American architect Richard Meier. The art on display consists of works from the latter half of the 20th century and some of the artists which have permanent collections in the museum include Tàpies, Klee and Torres. The museum also hosts various events and activities promoting contemporary art amongst younger generations.

The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art is a modern and light space in which to view contemporary art pieces and due to the changing nature of the exhibitions there is always something different to see. The museum is great to visit on a rainy day, if you are unlucky enough to experience that during your stay here. MACBA is yet another intriguing and fascinating museum to discover in the city of Barcelona.
