  • This Museum is closed. There's no notification hanging out why nor an English notification on their website. 2 for the building. -3 for the poor information.  more »
  • Cool venir with even cooler obscure artists
  • Excellent modern art collection! Catalan and Spanish painting from 20th and 21st century, a private collection and a skillful selection of the exposed works. Very different styles are presented, collection is not imposing or favoring certain approach discriminating others, but one can fully enjoy pluralism and diversity of contemporary art. Endless freedom of creation and interpretation of the art based on personal sensibility are the greatest values of contemporary art, which separate it from the previous centuries, which were based more on restrictions and rules. Organization and design of the exposition and relationship between artworks is equally good. Personally, I enjoy this collection, much more then official modern art museum in Barcelona. Architecturally it´s a contextual re-conversion of the old textile factory and valuable public space designed by BAAS. Fundaciò Vila Casas has two more museums in Costa Brava (sculpture and photography) equally valuable and all three are wonderful gift wealthy family with artistic sensibility could give to the people.
