Anyone who even remotely loves miro will want to make the beautiful trek through montjuic to see this museum. The collection is deep and you can end the visit in the museum library or for a coffee in the cafe. However, it was impossible to experience the josep Luis sert building, designed for the collection, as originally planned back in... More

Not being a specific art lover, I still think this museum is interesting to see. The surrealistic styles, the insights in Miro's life, the building, the parc around the musuem and the view at Barca makes the trip well worth.

I was really impressed with this museum! I walked from the gothic quarter to it and it was quite the track but witnesses lots of lovely sights and ventured an uphill battle to the park! The museum is defiantly better than any of the others I went to in Barcelona during the week.

That Joan Miro, his family and friends contributed to this collection helps make this a unique and personal experience. I like the artist, don't love his work, but have gained a deeper appreciation of his life and influences. The temporary exhibit that is there now - Barcelona Zona Neutral - 1914-1918 - is exquisite. Helps to understand the dynamics of... More

I was totally unfamiliar with Moro prior to the visit. Liked some of his work but wouldn't be in my top 20 favourite artists. Had a good temporary exhibition on about Barcelona during the First World War.

LOVE this museum!!! Literally numerous works by Míro in different periods, and the content of the multimedia guide is extremely rich. The whole design of the building and the interior were both masterpiece. My love most art museum in BCN!!

Being an art afficianado I was surprised to see that I was only familiar a small segment of Miro's work. It was fascinating to see his art transform over his lifetime and to understand a bit more about the symbolism he strived to convey. Visiting this museum was one of the highlights of my trip to Barcelona. Truly a wonderful... More

We spent a few hours here last week, and enjoyed learning a bit more about Miro. The museum also had a very interesting temporary exhibit about Barcelona and WWI, and the effect of the war on the local art scene.

I don't especially like Joan Miró's work, but if you do, then come here Not only an art museum, but a center of studies of Miró's life. It's up on Montjuic, and so is quite a walk from the bottom of the hill. You can either take the funicular train up there, or there is a bus that leaves from... More

Bit of a strange museum not quite sure I understood Miro, we hired the audio guide (extra 5 euros per person), not sure this is neccessary as it gives an opinion instead of letting you make your own mind up of the art on display. Gave up with the audio guide half way through. Not a very welcoming museum. You... More
