The main collection is a spectacular overview of the work of one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. Spread over three floors of large and inviting galleries, it gives you a new appreciation of the scope and imagination of Mro’s work and techniques. Take the headphones—they’re invaluable for the way they open up the show, which also includes a... More

Very nice museum in a great building. Good selection of paintings and a nice merchandising store too. I would highly recommend the BCN artticket. You can buy it online and pick it up for 28 Euros. It includes 6 museums and you can skip the waiting line which is awesome! We bought it to see Miro and Picasso, and used... More

The location of the museum is within a reasonable walk from the city's center. For us this was the highlight of our Barcelona visit. A beautiful building showing some excellent art. Calder's Mercury Fountain in the main hall is just phenomenal. This museum beats the crowded Picasso museum and while you are on Montjuïc pay a visit to the National... More

We got the ArticketBCN to see the Picasso Museum, Catalan Art Museum, and Fundacio Joan Miro. The Picasso Museum was ok; the art museum was good, but the Fundacio was terrible, unless you love modern art. Rick Steves' book said you either love it or hate it. At least the ArticketBCN allowed us to bypass the line.

I think I would have liked it better if the museum had grouped Miro's work in collections from different periods. For instance, I really liked his work from Palma de Mallorca but did not care for some of his other work.

A very nice building in a nice location but if you're not a serious Miro fan, this isn't on the "must do" list when in Barcelona

Beautiful building with an interesting history. Make sure to take the audio tour - easy to handle and adds significant value to the visit, especially if you also read the texts in the permanent section. Nice courtyard where you can have a drink or a coffee.

The Miro Museum is a top attraction in a city that has more than its share of artistic and cultural attractions. The extensive collection of Miro's work - paintings and sculptures is housed in a light, airy modern building in keeping with his work. The museum has paid great attention to making it accessible to all. Recommended.

The museum is on top of Montjuic which is worth the trip in it self. THere are three floors of Miro;s painting plus many sculptures. I bought several very reasonably priced posters in the gift shop.

This modern art gallery dedicated to Miro, is well worth visiting. Airy and light, the exhibits are displayed sympathetically. Nice shop selling Miro stuff and a lovely cafe which has a pretty courtyard garden.

Staying in Montjuic

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.
