We went there for a concern. The inside and outside are beautiful to see. Not sure if a tour is worth it, especially if your time is limited.

It is well worth the time to visit. The inside of the music hall is something to behold. Heard the famous organ being played.

This was a very good experience. We took the tour which was nice because it was not too long and had just enough interesting information. The story behind this place is interesting and is a great way for a visitor to understand the Catalan culture.

Loved the tour of the Palau de las Musica Catalana. It is a spectacular building with a beautiful interior. I would have loved to had time to attend a concert there. It would truly be a very special place to experience the arts. If you have to time to see this place - do!

I went in for a flamingo show instead of a guided tour. The interior and the exterior of the building is beautiful, but not as magnificent as I have expected. The third floor is a bit too far from the stage therefore it's quite difficult to watch the dancers clearly. The auditorium is designed in a very oval shape than... More

A tour is a wonderful experience but the sound has to be experienced in person. Expand your horizons and take in some music out of your comfort zone, you won't be sorry.

I missed the guided tours, from morning until 3 p.m. Very nice souvenir shop and a cafe inside. Grab some postcards! A lot of concerts. Nice sitting area in the garden.
