Getting there is fun, up the funicular that is part of the Barcelona metro. The building is modern and very well set up and the works are well in context, including a film on the artist's life. The shop is a gem, selling prints, reproductions and excellent tshirts.

This is a 2 hour visit (maybe more if you visit in the 2 bookshops). Its a modern building with light and bursts of color from Miro's paintings and sculptures. The collection is displayed by chronologial order so you clearly witness/enjoy seeing his evolving style; there are videos about Miro that are well worth the "sit".

I don't pretend to understand the work but like the bold colours, shapes etc. I would say the audio guide is a must to try and follow the work. Its very well presented in a spacious purpose built building with a terrace offering good views of the city.

You can't hire the audio guide (€5) without identification. A credit or debit card won't do. Why? This is bizarre.

This museum was not on my "must see" list, but it turned out to be a highlight of my visit. It is a bit out of the way, but easy to get to via the funicular. There are so many things to love about this site: the fabulous views of Barcelona, a building designed to beautifully display the art, and... More

A short distance walking from the Barcelona Museum for Catalan Art. Lots of Miro in a very nice building after that to the Teleferico to Barceloneta

Always liked Miro but never had the opportunity to see coverage of examples of the life work. Highly recommended. Great building too with predictably great view over the city.

I am not a modern art fan, but when the sight seeing tour hop on hop off bus stopped at this stop, I just thought to have a look at this museum. First I admired the modern building, designed by Joseph Lluis Sert, it also like a modern art! Main attraction is the 22 meters height statue Donna (women and... More

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.
