The CaixaForum is a cultural centre for contemporary art, music, conferences and family activities. Part of Barcelona-headquarted savings bank La Caixa’s social programming, the museum charges no admission and is open every day of the week. The museum is located at the base of Montjüic, in an Art-Nouveau building designed by Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, also famed for designing the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Completed in 1913, the building drew its inspiration from a romantic version of the medieval castle and was built to house a textile factory. After many years of vacancy, the building was renovated and opened its doors to the city in 2002.

CaixaForum brings together an exhibition that taps into the roots of the modern world with a collection of artefacts from the great civilisation of Mesopotamia. more
