The Museum of Modern Art is an important tourist attraction of Barcelona. Located in the Palau de la Ciutadella, the museum has been in existence since 1945.
The museum wonderfully exhibits a great collection of the works by Catalan artists. Most of the works in the older sections are arranged in chronological order; you can find works such as portraits, landscapes, genre scenes, and a few big historical paintings. The Art Nouveau section is quite impressive with its pictures, sculpture and even furniture.
The museum also displays creations of Expressionist and early modern artists of the first third of the twentieth Century. The upper floor of the museum offers a rich array of graphic collection with a huge number of wicked caricatures.
