Take a Virtual Museum Tour of Barcelona

November 02, 2020
Barcelona is one of those cities that's just so darn beautiful, you don't need to go to the museums. You'll plenty of amazing art on the streets, not to mention the stunning architecture that the city is known for. However, this is one thing you won't be able to do when you're not in Barcelona yourself. And because international travel is currently restricted because of a global pandemic, this truer now than it was before. So a good alternative is to visit the museums instead, albeit virtually. A handful of them provide virtual tours to allow you to explore them even when you're not in Spain.

Modern Art of Catalonia Museum 

While cities like Paris and London both embrace modern art, it's safe to say that Barcelona is its home. It helps that countless artists like Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso all called the Catalan capital their home. And you can find a number of their best works in the Modern Art of Catalonia Museum (MNAC), even by just its virtual tour. In fact, the museum's collection is so extensive that it's even said that it's the best in the country. Add to that the fact that it's also one of the best art schools in Barcelona. There's no end to the MNAC's devotion to art!

Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art 

Out of all the neighborhoods in Barcelona, El Raval is one of the most artistic. Just by talking on its streets alone, you'll find countless works of art just out in the open, perfect for a selfie or two! Though if you prefer to see art in a more curated environment, head on over to the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). Works of modern-day masters fill up the space, providing the best platform for today's artists to show what they're made of. And thanks to the power of technology, you can see said works online through the museum's own app!

Picasso Museum

The great artist and father of cubism, Pablo Picasso, was once one of Barcelona's most famous residents. If you ever visit the city, you'll find that some of his old haunts still stand, allowing you to walk in his great footsteps. But if you're more into his art than his life, the Picasso Museums is where you need to go to. It arguably has the most extensive collection of Picasso's works, a few of which are his most iconic. Now, since you can't fly off to Spain yourself, you can still see these amazing works online. And there's just as good through a screen as they are in real life!

Design Museum of Barcelona

While Paris and Milan are the more famous fashion capitals in Europe, Barcelona isn't too far behind! The Spanish certainly have their own sense of style, one that's worth checking out and even imitating from time to time. But did you know that the Catalan capital actually has a fascinating history with clothes? You'll know more about it when you visit the Design Museum of Barcelona, even if it's just online. From their many virtual exhibitions, you'll see that the design has been a huge part of the city's history and heritage.

Museum of the History of Catalonia

For many people outside of the country, Barcelona is simply in Spain. And while this is technically true, it's more accurate to regard that the city is in Catalonia, a very different region from the others in Spain. So much so that it has a fairly different dialect, heritage, and more. So if you really want to appreciate Barcelona, it's better you know the history of Catalonia first. One of the best ways to do that is to go on a virtual tour of the Museum of the History of Catalonia. Everything you need to know about this part of the country is displayed here.

Foto Colectania

Photography is pretty important in Barcelona. How can it not when the city alone has countless Instagrammable spots! The entire Catalan capital is practically the perfect canvass for any travel photographer out there. However, the city itself has quite a collection of fine photography as well. They're all displayed at the Foto Colectania. Though if you can't go here right now, you can always view the said photographs on the museum's website! See the gallery's latest exhibitions and peruse through its valuable collection of snapshots from the biggest names in the art, entertainment, and even fashion world!

Prado Museum

Finally, there's the famous Prado Museum. There's arguably no other collection of Spanish art bigger than that of this gallery. And while the main one is in Madrid, the one in Barcelona is just as extensive. The works of Bosch, Velázquez, and Goya are all displayed here, giving visitors a chance to realize just how talented the country's own artists were. And now, with the help of technology and the internet, you can view these priceless pieces online too!
