The general shutdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus also affects Barcelona's museums, attractions, monuments and cultural centres, which started closing their doors and cancelling or postponing activities and events on March 13. Here we began a list prior to March 14 to keep you abreast of the museums and attractions that will be closed until at least April 11 (this date updated as of March 23) or until further assessment is done by health officials and governing bodies, though as of March 14 the shutdown is more generalised across the city. Other events and festivals in Barcelona have been cancelled or postponed as well.

RECOMMENDED: Museums and galleries you can visit from home
