Really worth a visit for anyone with even a passing interest in Miro, Spanish art or interesting modern architecture and sculpture. Lovely little cafe too. See where Miro made his pieces. Recommended.

We arrived on the bus (no 46) with high anticipation after seeing the Miro in Barcelona but were disappointed. The display of Miro's work was not very inspiring. The Centre was badly signposted and looked in need of some TLC especially in the grounds outside. If you go make sure you see the buildings where Miro worked, including the buildings... More

In 1981,Juan Miro and his Majorcan wife Pilar Juncosa donated four workshops where he had worked since moving to Palma in1956 until his death in 1983 along with the accumulated art work and documents. The Moneo building was built between 1986-92 to house the museum's headquarters with a library, archives, auditorium and shop . Some of his personal collection is... More

The building was so good it almost took attention from the artworks displayed. Lots of Miro's 60s and 70s masterpieces, although not a chronological permanent collection. Great to see the inside of his studio too. The whole place feels almost like a small campus. Get there by bus (it's not central Palma.) IMO this is the one absolute must-see in... More

Was such a treat to visit the Joan Miro gallery and studios. To see his paintings in person was amazing and even more interesting was able to see his studio and workshop on the premises and get an inside view of how he created his amazing works. At the south end of Palma you can get a taxi easily or... More

We were on an MSC Musica cruise and had read about the Joan Miro Museum as a place to go to get away from the 'tourist' spots. We caught a taxi from the terminal cost about 10 euro. The museum was very quiet, only us at one stage. It is just a super little museum with heaps of Miro pictures... More

Unfortunately we were underwhelmed by all aspects of the Miro foundation. The grounds are unkempt, the lighting inside poor and the access to the studio and workshops limited. Go to admire the Miro art but don't expect a great art experience

The exhibition is housed in a fabulous building. A work of art in itself. The sculptures are situated in the garden/terrace and surrounding grounds. The studio and villa with Miro's graffiti scrawled on the walls is a 'must see'.

As a fan of Joan Miro, it was a privilege to visit his house and museum in Palma, Mallorca. To see his studio, his works, his house, was a wish comes true.
