MACBA is a very kid-frienly museum, with an open-plan, ramps everywhere, and enough buzz to cover minor baby or kid noises. Some of the artwork is especially engaging, on our visit the kids were enthralled by an exhibit featuring light projectors and shadows.

There is lots of space for running outside in the placa out front, and kids will enjoy watching skateboarders make use of MACBA's outside ramp. Bring an inflatable ball (our favorite is the Gertie Ball) and let the kids run in the big open plaza in front of the museum before you enter.

The museum hosts children's activities during school holidays.

An ARTICKETBCN pass will enable you to skip the ticket line at this and several other Barcelona Museums.
