Owner description: 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.

This is now one of my favourite art galleries in the world. An outstanding collection of works by Joan Miro and others, including some wonderful examples of Alexander Calder, all beautifully displayed in a building designed by Josep Lluis Sert. A large, modern building in white catches the eye as you walk through the Parc de Montjuic. It's quite a... More

From Lluís Sert's construction THEN the collection itself made this my favourite gallery in the city.. and ranks highly amongst the most engaging in the world that I have been fortunate to have visited. His endeavours in so many forms of expression leaves one wanting…visually a feast for the eyes. Not to be missed. I went twice.

The Fundacio Joan Miro (NOT Parc de Joan Miro) provides an engaging overview of the work of an artist many know only from a few public sculptures and paintings in major collections of modern art. Visitors are well-advised to rent the audioguide. Explanations are clear and insightful, and the program is easily navigated to go "deeper into the weeds" for... More

There are 2 sites being treated as one by Tripadvisor. Parc de Joan Miró is a park, not an art gallery. It is located about 2 km. Northwest of the Fundacio Joan Miro which is the art gallery. Parc de Joan Miro is just North of the Placa Espayna (or variations on that spelling), easily reached by bus or metro.... More

I was expecting this park to be full of art by Joan Miro, however beyond one large sculpture (great though it may have been), there is nothing there.

The building is as spectacular as the art inside. Lovely views from the roof and the light and airy galleries inside are a great setting for Miro's colourful works. Interesting to see the progression of Miro's work. Well worth queuing to get in although it looked like the queues were much less in the afternoon. Cafe with outside courtyard is... More

much easier to navigate around than Dali museum in Figures. Collection is extensive and gives a good history of Miro.

We thoroughly enjoyed the museum and sculpture garden featuring the work of Joan Miro, who did some of his most important work in Barcelona and surrounding Catalonia. Some of the large scale pieces were very impressive and there was quite a bit of info on his life and work. It's off the beaten track but worth it.

Lovely museum in a nice venue. I really do like a single artist museum when you can see there progression and other artists influence on them. Obviously it helps if you like the artist

I was not a huge Miro fan before this visit but am now because i was previously ignorant of the very wide range of his art and the quality of his work across genres. The collection is wide ranging and very well curated with good explanations and is layed out in a way that is comprehensive but does not overwhelm.... More
