If you are an art lover and are curious about what museums and galleries in Barcelona have to offer, this one is for you! This is the official endorsement of several cultural institutions of the very official Aspasios blog. If you´re in Barcelona, how do you navigate a museum scene with dozens of offerings? Should you see a wide variety of art, focus on a single artist, or learn about local history? The Picasso Museum This is one of the most popular museums in the whole city with more than a million visitors every year. It holds the most comprehensive collection of art by this master, ranging from his classical art school training all the way through his development as an impressionist virtuoso. +34 932 56 30 00 Carrer de Montcada, 15-23 (El Born) Joan Miró Foundation (Fundació Joan Miró) The oldest piece by Miró dating back to 1914 is found at this museum dedicated entirely to him.

Starting from the foundations of Barcelona itself, the museum holds art such as Medieval gilded scenes of saints, Renaissance portraiture, and modernista furniture. Enjoy the view from the museum´s restaurant or outdoor terrace on top of Montjuïc. This is the metaphorical cherry on top of Barcelona´s museum-cake. +34 936 22 03 60  Palau Nacional, Parc de Montjuïc (Montjuïc) Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo or MACBA) MACBA focuses largely on art from the second half of the 20th century and in here you will find the most interesting, more local contemporary artists you have never heard of alongside more internationally known ones. From mixed media and cinema to paintings and installations in the iconic space (designed by the esteemed Richard Meier), this museum has got you covered. +34 934 12 08 10 Plaça Àngels, 1 (El Raval)
