The Fundació Joan Miró hosts an extensive collection of his works, from his training and beginnings in Barcelona and Paris, to the artistic avant-garde of the time -a dynamic artistic process that would lead him to forge his unique, unmistakable style.Miró's works are shown alongside a wide variety of temporary exhibitions by other artists - a fact that is reflected in the Foundation's full name of Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art.

The museum is light and spacious, but the works of Joan Miro leave me with the question - "how did he become so famous when he can't paint". Children do better art work than most of his paintings. So what is the attraction of his work? Salvador Dhali is brilliant but this man leaves me cold.

One of the best laid out galleries we have ever visited. Light and airy, spacious even when busy. Truly shows Miro's work off to its advantage. We went when there was also an exhibition of other (current ) artists on the subject of the EU which was multi media. Again excellently curated. What we also were impressed with was that... More

Even though I like early 20th century art, I found this dull - there were a few pieces I liked, but generally I found this museum repetitive. Also, there was a temporary exhibition but they wouldn't let me in - I think this was because it closed over lunch, if that was the case, why didn't they tell me to... More

Modern Catalan art at its best with one of its major representative's work on display. Like Dali, Picasso, and Gaudi, Miro takes us to new, interesting artistic dimensions where our conventional notions about art are challenged in a fascinating and fulfilling way. Make sure you get an audio guide to help you better appreciate the exhibits. Use the funicular to... More

Joan Miró is one of the the great artists that Barcelona produced during the late 19 and early 20th century. This beautiful museum contains some of his better works. The museum building is beautiful and has some great views of the City.

Unless you are a Miro aficionado, you may not understand or appreciate his art. Although I do t know a great deal about his art, I enjoyed the museum and spent about two hours here. With the audio guide, I really enjoyed learning what was meant in his sculptures or in his paintings. The building is perfectly situated on Montjuic... More

I knew relatively little about Miro, as a person or an artist prior to visiting this museum. By the time I left, I had learned quite about about his personal background, how his art fits into his world and art history generally, and learned quite about about his artistic "language" and iconography. The museum is laid out in a logical... More

This very interesting art gallery is in Parc Montjuic and can be reached easily by bus or metro. It is housed in a modern building. The collection is extensive & the experience was well worth the entrance fee.

Love how this museum was designed especially to house the work of Joan Miro, and how the museum takes you through the development of his style thoughout his long life. Views from the roof terrace and through glass doors all add to the experience, with a BCN tourist ticket entry is free, so definitely worth a visit. Good to see... More

The building itself is an architectural gem set in a fabulous location with great views over the city. The collection of Miro's work is extensive and very well presented in light and airy galleries. Absolute must see when visiting Barcelona.

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.
