A private museum filled with an incredible collection of modernist works, from art and sculptures to furniture design, architecture and more.

Please note: The Museum will be closed for August, opening again on 1 September 2018

One of Barcelona's best hidden gems, the Museum of Modernism features an extensive collection of Modernist art and design works.

Located in the heart of the Eixample district and housed in a modernist building designed by Enric Sagnier between 1902 - 1904, the Museum of Modernism is housed over two floors.

On the first floor you can explore works by Antonio Gaudí, Joan Busquets and Gaspar Homar in the furniture section. Don't forget to visit the section dedicated to Gaudí, featuring emblematic works by the master himself. 

Journey down to the lower level and discover paintings and sculptures in a more intimate setting, with works by Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Joaquim Mir, Josep Llimona and Eusebi Arnau, a sculptor who worked in the decoration of very relevant buildings such as the Palau de la Música or the Santa Creu i Sant Pau Hospital. 

The Museum of Modernism is the only museum dedicated exclusively to Catalan Modernism and is the perfect place for art and design-lovers.


  • 1,000m2 space, spread across two floors, dedicated to Modernist art and design works.
  • Works by famous architect Antonio Gaudí
