“Odd exhibition beautifully presented”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

As with every other museum we went to in Barcelona, the staff were friendly and helpful and the exhibitions were laid out beautifully. The items they had collected were impressive and made for a very interesting afternoon.

“Loved the exhibition”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

It is a contemporary museum, so it is OK if it doesn't appeal to everybody's taste. Before you visit, you'd better check online what exhibitions are displayed at the moment and decide for yourself. When we visited it was "Metamorphosis" - bizzare, at times disturbing art of three different artists. It included puppets, dolls, films. I found them interesting and thought-provoking, my husband was a bit shocked and disgusted but that's what art is all about - it depends on you if you're going to love it or hate it. If you have time in Barcelona, I suggest you give it a chance. It's free with Barcelona card.

“Great building, disappointing art”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

We had expected more from the contemporary art centre of Barcelona. But the building is worth a visit and we also enjoyed some of the photos upstairs.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 via mobile

Visited here and there only seemed to be one exhibition space open. The rest was closed off. Didn't see any airy aces that the other reviewers have mentioned. Check what's open before you go in.

“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

While taking a very long walking tour of Barcelona during which we decided to go where our senses of direction took us, we discovered the CCCB Museum. It was almost empty when we arrived so we were able to take our time and go through the museum at our pace. One of the most attractive features of the museum is the use of natural light. Our overall favorable impression was enhanced by the amount of empty space allotted to the exhibits and by the variety of installations. A wonderful museum if you like contemporary art.
