There is a 6 € entrance fee, but it is needed only for some rooms. You can see the majority of the fundacio for free! It has a very nice surroundings and a panoramic view. There is also a nice coffee bar to relax and enjoy the visit!

Great museum - in particular I enjoyed the two studios of Miro which are part of this museum. Interesting art of his located here, though not the 'big' pieces.

The Joan Miró Foundation opened to the public on 10 June 1975. It had its origins in Miró's first large exhibition in Barcelona, in 1968, at the Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu. Several figures from the world of the arts saw the opportunity to have a space in Barcelona dedicated to the artist's work. However, in accordance with his... More

The foundation is based in the former home and studio of Joan Miro supplemented by a modern gallery displaying the main collection of his work.His more famous works are elsewhere but there's enough of a selection here to get a flavour of his style and development as an artist. The other buildings on site are a modern studio that Miro... More

A short bus trip from Palma centre, this is a lovely place to visit for any fan of Modern Art and Miro in particular. The building layout and grounds offer tranquillity from the bustling city. The main exhibition area has an extensive number of Miro paintings and sculpture. The smaller studios where Miro worked were also a treat to see... More

Gallery dedicated to Joan Miro and his wife Pilar. There is a good exhibition of his work including sculpture, you can visit his studios which give an impression of how he worked and what inspired him. It's all in a nice setting in hillside with a cafe in garden. The architecture if the gallery is interesting in its own right.

Free at weekends, the grounds and buildings are amazing and worth a visit even if you aren't into art.

Ok, so this spot is a bit of a way out of Palma's city centre (not really within walking distance, even for the heartiest of hiking souls). But is it ever worth the bus trip! Fabulous wee gallery, lush gardens, and Miro's authentic studios. A must-see for any arts buff. And I went on a Saturday, so admission was free... More

I visited on a Saturday when admission is free and I enjoyed it. There is not much to it, but it was a pleasant way to start the day.

I had hoped to see more of Miro's museum quality work so was disappointed at how little of his high quality work was on view. It was interesting seeing his studio but it was hard to get an idea of what it must have been like for him to work there as his studio, and the related buildings, are now... More
