So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.

The Museum of World Cultures of Barcelona shows its visiting public the artistic and cultural diversity of different cultures from Africa, Asia, America and Oceania. The museum presides in two gothic palaces opposite of Picasso’s Museum on Montcada Street, in the Born neighbourhood where the DHUB once was. Both buildings have been adapted to cater to the needs of the new museum and we must say, we are quite impressed with how they have used the space.

Collaborative links with museums of ethnography and world cultures internationally, as well as with some private collections allows it to exhibit some exceptional pieces. The permanent collection is displayed on the first and second floors. Africa occupies the ground floor, where you can see works from ancient kingdoms beautifully displayed and a selection of ceremonial masks and sculptures. Asia is the most well represented continent because 33% of the art pieces are from this world region, followed by America (South and Centre) with 32%, Africa (19%), and Oceania (16%). Free entrance until April 7 and suitable for all.

Stay at DestinationBCN’s central Barcelona apartments, so that you can visit some of the amazing arts and culture the city has to offer.
