What to expect

The Catalan Modernism Museum of Barcelona (Museu del Modernisme Català, Mmcat) opened in 2010. It is housed in a former textile factory in the centre of Barcelona and offers visitors the chance to enjoy a cultural centre dedicated exclusively to modernist art.

Booking your ticket in advance will let you skip the line and start your visit of the museum as soon as you arrive.

The collection

The holdings of the Catalan Modernism Museum come from the private collection that two Barcelona antique dealers, Fernando Pinós and María Guirao, have amassed during their 40 years in the business. The museum is dedicated exclusively to Catalonia’s home-grown art-nouveau movement: "Modernisme". The collection on shows consists of 350 works by 42 of the most representative modernist artists, including Joan Busquets, Ramón Casas, Antoni Gaudí, Gaspar Homar, Josep Llimona, Joaquim Mir and Puig i Cadafalch, in their different disciplines: painting, sculpture, furniture and decorative arts.

The building

The museum is housed in a centrally located modernist building, designed by the architect Enric Sagnier. The Catalan vaults were restored and the original flooring on the ground floor preserved as part of the refurbishment project to house the museum. It has a floor space of 1.000 square metres. The top floor of the MMCat showcases furniture and decorative arts and has a room dedicated to Antoni Gaudi. The ground floor displays paintings, sculptures and stained glass.
