Each of its rooms explores a specific field, including mechanics, optics, meteorology, and computer science. There is also a planetarium onsite that explains aspects of astronomy.

The European Museum of Modern Art

One of the most popular museums for its figurative art collection, The European Museum of Modern Art (Museu Europeu d'Art Modern) is a must visit. On show is a collection of modern art pieces that date back to the 20th Century. One can find exhibits of photo-realism, life-size sculptures and other works of art. It has a souvenir shop too, where one might pick up attractive collectibles. The cafe also contains some good art pieces, giving one the feel of being surrounded by art. The venue also offers space for concerts and events to give local artists a chance to exhibit their skills.

Joan Miró Foundation

Established by surrealist artist Joan Miró, this institute was founded to support the study of contemporary art. It was built by architect Josep Lluís Sert who was also a close friend to Miró and member of the Catalan art scene. Its outstanding octagonal tower houses a concert hall that puts on classical music performances, and the striking building also houses a permanent collection of Miró's art. Large canvases mingle with tapestries while engravings complement photographs. Given the eclectic stylings of its honored artist, the institute showcases a number of disciplines and aesthetics. There are also a café-restaurant and souvenir shop onsite, promising plenty of comfort for visitors to the Joan Miró Foundation.

National Art Museum of Catalunya

Built in 1990, the National Art Museum of Catalonia offers the best collection of Romanesque murals in the world, including some real gems from the Pyrenean region. Other pieces housed in the collection demonstrate diversity through such mediums as carving, sculpture, wood paintings, and glazed objects. Also found in the museum are uniques works like intricate altarpieces and gold and silver ornaments. You'll enjoy a selection of Gothic period paintings by 14th- and 15th-century Catalan School artists alongside those of their counterparts from across Spain and Europe. Art lovers will enjoy a healthy dose of local art at the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

Montjuïc Castle

This historic castle is perched atop the Montjuïc hill not far from the Barcelona port. The original structure was built in the mid-17th Century during the Catalan Revolt, at which time armies under King Philip IV sieged much of what is today eastern Spain, though the landmark saw significant expansion and improvement from 1751 to 1779. The building that protects the harbor today has become a symbol of centralist repression and the abolition of Catalan liberties, reminding visitors of Barcelona's complex history. Visitors can reach Montjuïc Castle by cable car and enjoy breathtaking ocean views from its scenic vantage point as well as tours of the landscaped grounds.

Catalonia History Museum

Housed in a 19th-century warehouse on the Barcelona port, this museum was created to preserve, exhibit, and disseminate Catalonian history. It is a dynamic and contemporary cultural center where the past is brought to life through artifacts, documents, historical re-creations, mixed media presentations, and interactive displays. Beyond regular exhibitions, there are also learning opportunities in the form of historical archives and libraries, as well as a dedicated educational department. Move from prehistoric times to the modern era, explore with a topographic model of Catalonia under your feet, wind down on the rooftop terrace with hot coffee and exquisite vistas, then swing by the souvenir shop on your way out.
