Caixaforum Barcelona Reviews & Ratings
Great value admission price of €5 to see the Velasquez exhibition. Beautiful building. Good value lunch with wine in the restaurant although service was initially shabby 🙁
Always interesting exhibitions. The building itself is free to explore and fascinating. The cafe has been renovated - a bit tastelessly, the previous version was much better - but the lunch menus are still excellent, well-priced and imaginative.
Great space. Usually they hace something for everyone
Especially good for the return Barcelona visitor or to relax from the other, overcrowded sites. Went to their Velazquez & Toulouse-Lautrec exhibitions. These were well-balanced, not overstuffed, as can be the case elsewhere I Europe. They always have interesting temporary shows that might be overlooked by the usual visitor to Barcelona. The location is kind of odd, but nearby is Plaza España and a weird shopping center, The Arena, actually a converted old bullring. There are audioguides for the exhibitions which are in various languages and these are very informative. Of course, the staff here, I imagine, speak English.
Nice exhibits, small but accurate. Great option to spend an afternoon and get out of the coach 🙂
