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.

Good visit - could have done with more displays about the artist and his life but enjoyable nonetheless

This stark white building hosts a massive collection of Joan Miro beautiful and haunting art. It also has a nice collection of other notable artists, such as Calder and Tapeis. The museum is a joy to visit. Take your time and enjoy the Miro. He was an amazing artist.

this is how art should be exposed and showed to public. Building is great, the view is great and surroundings are great as well. I am giving four starts to this object despite the fact I do not like Miró's work. It resembles me work of a child, cheating the word "art" in its true sense... But that is my... More

Great location to explore and enjoy the work of Miro. Thoughtful hang of his work allows the visitor to appreciate the range and size of some of Miro's work, particularly a magnificant tapestry that hangs close to the entrance. Fun and quirk sculptures on the 1st floor outside terrace are best viewed with an azure sky with the city in... More

Definitely worth your time even if you have only a small appreciation for art. Some of it I got and some of it baffled me completely. None of it was boring.

Superb museum with a great outdoor terrace with sculptures. Nice little cafe inside for lunch. This museum gives an expansive show of Miro's work. Very worthwhile.

If you like history of art and/or contemporary art, you can't miss it. If you don't like contemporary art, don't spend your time there.

Visited the Miro gallery on the advice of a friend. Admission is cheap and there are lots of rooms with paintings, statues and ceramics. Not particularly a fan of Miro, but looking at some of the huge paintings you can appreciate the effort thats gone into them. The gallery is at the top of the hill, and set in the... More

I was never a big fan of the artist, just had seen a piece here and there and liked his style. Going to his museum in Barcelona didn’t really pique my interest as much as I’d expected. For some reason, the museum doesn’t seem to have a definite “flow” – I got lost when changing floors and had the impression... 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.
