I'm a big enthusiast of Joan Miró (my wife is not so much...) so this was a great visit for me. This museum holds some of Miró's best works in sketches, drawings, paintings, sculptures, textiles and ceramics. I especially love his Mercury fountain sculpture - I can look at it for hours - it grasps you just like sea waves,... More

We had seen two Miro exhibitions before and we had high expectations to truly understand him. However the previous exhibition we had seen in Wienna same fall was much better. Also audio guide was not as informative as earlier experiences.

Although I'm not a fan of Surrealism in art (except for some of Dali's work), this visit to the Montjuic museum edifice of Miro's foundation was an interesting experience. The architecture is a somewhat iconic example of 20th century simplistic modernism, the exponents a rather comprehensive collection of aspects of the artist's productivity. Included is a library, and some running... More

Joan Miro founded this museum as a place to showcase his art. It was interesting, worth a visit, but for me, not a highlight-- Barcelona has so much that is totally fabulous. They have a different audio guide set-up that for us didn't flow well so we struggled with that.

I guess I am trailer trash, as this Museo did absolutely nothing for me. My friends loved it so much they went back. I went to the Roman museum just down the hill instead, and enjoyed it a lot more. Different strokes for different folks.

From other reviews, I couldn't really tell if this museum would be worth going to, especially as it is not near a lot of Top Ten Barcelona highlights. After visiting, I can say that if you enjoy Miro, you should not miss this museum. The entire facility was amazing, from the building to the way the exhibits were organized to... More

The Joan Miro museum presents an extensive retrospective of the artist work in a nice set-up. The audio was a bit expensive (Euro 5) but worth it. I liked the statues, which I had not been that familiar with previously. Especially Calder's mercury fountain, which was a nice surprise.

This is also part of the Art ticket museums and a wonderful, wonderful place. The breath of the holdings is very impressive, the architecture is wonderful, and the building itself a work of art. Alongside the Picasso Museum, this is a must see for anyone with an appreciation for art. It is located on the hill overlooking the city, but... More

Fundacio Miro probably isn't on everybody's hitlist in Barcelona, but as fans of his work we were keen to see it. We caught an inexpensive taxi up to the top of the hill, got there for opening time and wandered the galleries in relative peace. Miro's work is so colourful, on occasion cheeky and on other occasions (such as his... More

Quite an impressive museum. Beautiful view from the rooftop. Lots of great information on Miro - I learned a lot about his history, family, and most importantly his art. The audio guide is great and well worth the fee. A very serene, relaxing setting. If you walk up from the city center prepare for a lengthy, but enjoyable hike.
