Although not a big fan of Miro I found this building very intriguing and special which helped in understanding all stages of his development as an artist.

Very accessible art in a lovely surrounding. Afterwards we wandered up to the Olympic stadium and down to the fountains, all very pleasant and quiet compared... More

the objects of miro are really worth a visit,already at the entrance "waits" a statue to welcome you and then you can enter a completely cool museum - it was very hot outside and coming in was big relief. I also saw some objects I did not know before like the tapestry on the walls. there was a roof terrace... More

I didn't know a lot of Joan Miro's work but I discovered that is not the kind of art I like. Some pieces are too abstract and some are too concrete so I didn't enjoy the exhibit, even the museum, is kind of very simplistic and not interesting to my eyes. If you really know about Miro's work and like... More

I love Miro so this was almost a spiritual experience. The works I have seen in cards...just to see them on the walls is moving. The out door roof sculpture garden is beautifully set and done. The architecture of the building is noteworthy in the land of the gotic. There are some good works of Calder and I loved seeing... More

The Miro museum houses a marvelous permanent collection as well as a temporary exhibit and features the many different mediums in which he worked.

There was plenty to see, lots of wonderful Miro art, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Between the paintings and the sculptures, a few showcased outside with a nice view, it was an enjoyable morning. Recommend it to any art fan and even ones who aren't.

A good collection of Miro's paintings and sculptures, in a beautiful setting above Barcelona. The museum is in Montjuic, which is a very nice little mountain in Barcelona, and you can spend a good day in the area. Some of Miro's work is great, and are display there; some are repetitive and deja vu; but this is definitively worth visiting.... More

An excellent collection of Miro's works, beautifully displayed in a building on Montjuic with a wonderful panoramic view of Barcelona. Very informative, it was well worth the visit.

I don't think you need to be a modern art lover to enjoy an hour (or less....) in this beautiful designed museum.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
