These are the top art museums to see in Barcelona:
The Picasso Museum in Barcelona opened on 1963 and is housed inside 5 medieval mansions of the Born District: a unique setting! This wonderful collection of 4.249 works from the early and late works of Pablo Picasso, is considered the best collection in the world about the training years of the artist. There aren’t many cubist masterpieces in this museum (most of them are in Paris and NYC), but there’s a story behind every painting that will open up a whole new perspective about who Picasso was and will probably change your way of looking at his paintings forever.
Can Framis – Fundació Vilacasas
Can Framis was also a factory in the 1800s. After years of inactivity, the Fundació Vilacasas decided to refurbish the old building and turn it into a new Contemporary Art Museum. There’s a space for temporary exhibits, but unlike the European Museum of Modern Art in the Born district, there’s a permanent collection of 300 Catalan artists’ works from the 60’s to nowadays.
