Opening hours and price

The MACBA is the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, in El Raval, behind the University of Catalunya and the Contemporary Culture Center of Barcelona, the CCCB.

It is a very big, modern and pleasant museum, standing out for its large white facade. The museum is opened during the summer from Monday to Friday between 11 am and 8 pm and closes at midnight on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The entrance fee to the MACBA collection costs 3€, and the best part of it is that this ticket is valid for a duration of one month during which you can go in and out as many times as you want.

Perfect to spend an hour at the end of the day, relaxed, go back home without having to assimilate too much information. There are days the museum is free, you can check it on their website, like the day after the opening of an exhibition for example.

The museum was created in the sixties but the project of this big contemporary art museum dates back from 1985. What I like about it is that it is very well integrated into the city, not like the typical cold and sad museum.

Art and creation

The cultural offer of the city of Barcelona is unstoppable and thriving, the range of museums, galleries and art centers is innumerable. Going on cultural visits in Barcelona is thus a pleasant experience.

Contemporary art has its own center, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, also known as MACBA. Interesting works of the best exponents of recent and current artistic creation are exhibited there.

The program of complementary activities turns it into an institution completely in line with the interdisciplinary idea of dealing with reality, with all types of initiative, from workshops, courses and lectures to commented visits.

In an extension of the museum just in front of it there is a rich documentation fond where you can find many bibliographical sources for research linked to contemporary art thinking.

Apart from contemplating or analyzing the works exhibited in this museum, the experience of going through the hallways is pleasant, for the rationalist and fresh line designed by the North American architect Richard Meier and who managed to give an expression to the facade and inside spaces.

Accumulation of aesthetic emotions to stimulate the senses of art and creation amateurs.

There is always something interesting

The MACBA is one of my favorite museums in Barcelona, I always find an interesting exhibition or activity, apart from the permanent collection, standing out for its modernist eclecticism.

There is a research center, a library, many educational activities, publications and conferences you can hear and watch on the internet website.
