Must go place, even if only for the fantastic view over Barcelona. Really beautiful surroundings and you can walk from MNAC to various other attraction points.

This museum houses its art in a 1929 palace on a hill overlooking Barcelona. And what art! The collections are impressive and displayed to show to the best advantage each piece. If you need a break, try the restaurant or the café. By the way, visitors over 60 (I think the age is correct) are admitted free.

Without English leaflet there was some aimless wandering on this visit. More extensive pre-planning homework may have eased some distress. What a delicious spot to wander about in distress! The rooftop view is not to be missed. (this venue is included in the six museum bargain ticket package)

A lot of art for the entrance fee! Although I think one must be very into art and history to appriciate the museum fully. A note: be careful with people asking you to sign a petition and give money on behalf of handicaped children. They hustled us.

We were swept away by the art and restoration presented so sensitively here. It is a deeply absorbing and interesting place.

I always thought that it's more beautiful from outside, but was definetely mistaken. The museum is so amazing inside. I'm not only talking about the art, but about the building. looks like a beautiful old palace, I was actually surprised that it was not that old. Definetely - yes , visit it.

Situated at the top of a hill overlooking the fountain, MNAC is certainly a sight to behold. We went at opening and the place was empty which gave us the opportunity to see this museum bare without anyone else to obstruct our view or interrupt our curious minds. If you love museums, you'll love this. If you're not into museums,... More

If you like art museums this is worth visiting, especially for the Romanesque section, which is quite unique. The rest of the artwork probably doesn't reach the heights of the prado or louvre but it is still good to see artists that I wasn't familia with. Great building and easy to get to. We had lunch at the resaraunt. There... More
