Here is a selection of the best museums in Barcelona.

museo Picasso Barcelona

Museo Picasso

Anyone with even minimal interest in art simply must visit this space dedicated to the great artist from Malaga. The art gallery, located in the Born neighbourhood is home to more than 4,000 works by Picasso. In fact, it is the world leader on the prolific period of the artists youth. It also regularly holds temporary exhibitions that give it much added value. The Museum has a special symbolism as it was created on the initiative of Picasso himself, since his association with Barcelona was very strong.

Museo Nacional de Arte de Cataluña

It’s said that anyone who visits the magic mountain of Montjuic has a moral obligation to see the National Palace of the Universal Exhibition of 1929. Here you’ll find the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, an exceptional place that takes you on a journey through painting, sculpture, photography, coinage, posters and prints from the Romanesque period until well into the 20th century. A collection of artistic jewels, some of incalculable value, comes together to create without doubt the finest collection of Romanesque art in the world.


Fundación Joan Miró

One of the most brilliant Barcelona artists of all time, Joan Miró, should not be missed on your artistic journey through the city. At the very heart is a full tour of his work, with the presence of more than 10,000 pieces, including paintings, tapestries, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, engravings and more. It was Joan Miró himself who prompted the creation of this museum, which stands out for its design, with large white walls and an impressive brightness throughout.

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona (MACBA)

Contemporary art has an exceptional home in the neighbourhood of el Raval at MACBA. It opened in 1995 in a daring building, the work of Richard Meier, where the museum is a firm commitment to positioning Barcelona as one of the leaders of contemporary art across the globe. It houses permanent exhibitions of works made in the second half of the 20th century and boasts a vast collection of more than 5,000 creations.

Museo de la Ciencia de Barcelona (CosmoCaixa)

Aside from museums dedicated to art, Barcelona also benefits from other spaces dedicated to other branches of the museum world as important as science. CosmoCaixa is housed in a beautiful building originally designed by Josep Domènech i Estapà, which has undergone various renovations over the years. It has rooms dedicated to all branches of science, a planetarium, temporary exhibitions and attractions for children. It stands out for its interactive character and is the ideal place to enjoy science, from the gigantic to the microscopic.
