The museum also features contemporary artist around the world in form of changing exhibitions and the building was designed by architect Josep Lluís Sert. Unfortunately it is forbidden to take photos inside the museum, so the actual works cannot be photographed. There’s still this nice roof terrace, along some sculptures, where it’s allowed to take photos.
