The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first...

The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first principally with works from his own private collection, with a desire to set up an internationally recognised centre in Barcelona for Miró scholarship and contemporary art research, and to disseminate the collection. The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a dynamic centre in which Joan Miró's work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art. With an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organises temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st century artists as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research linked to the work of Miró and to contemporary art. The Fundació is located in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums anywhere in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them. The Fundació offers an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró's art and life, creating an enriching dialogue with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The museum has mostly Juan Miro works. I am not a huge fan of Juan Miro, but I really loved the location and the museum. The architecture is quite lovely but it is a little hard to find.

I thought I knew the work of Joan Miro - I learned so much here. I was here on a gorgeous day and the museum truly shines with the beauty of the location as well as the beauty of the art. I had a small lunch in the courtyard restaurant. I accessed this surprise via the BCN Tourisme bus -... More

Miro is not for every body, it is really an acquired taste. You either want to see everything in the exhibition, or you just want to get out. Very modern and extravigant to minimalistic.

The Miro Foundation is a relatively small space dedicated to the career and work of Barcelonan painter Joan Miro. The galleries contain a historical overview of his work and some pieces from his friends in a lovely space near the top of Montjuic. Works include paintings, sculpture and works on paper, and an especially nice sculpture by by Calder. The... More

Enjoyed a sandwich here and great coffee sitting out on the terrace after touring the museum. I wish we'd had more time and a bigger appetite

We wanted to spend the day at Montjuic, so we began at this museum. The art seemed less than interesting to us and almost amateur.

Since Miro and Kandinsky my two favourite painters when we visited Barcelona, Miro’s home town,to go to the Fundacio Joan Miro was one of the most awaited programs. I wasn’t disappointing either: Sert’s a beautiful snow-white building in which provides a worthy framework to the immortal works of Miró, nor the innumerable paintings, sculptures , textiles, drawings and exhibitions.

The building is interesting, though I think more for it's connection with Miró than, say the MACBA, since this was designed by Sert, old friend of his. It's the tiniest bit pretentious, but not too bad, and if you want a lifetime survey this is the place. (I think one piece, one of the 10 000 he did called "Woman,... More

Neighborhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
