A section of the museum was closed for repair, but we entered the older area with paintings and murals and sculptures. There was Medieval art with works from 11th-13th centuries.Wood carvings and metalwork was also presented. The Gothic art from the end of the 13th through the 15th centuries presented pieces from Catalonia. It also had artists such as Jaume... More

If you've climbed up Montjuic Hill, do visit MNAC. Their gothic frescoes are second to none. Sadly the Modern Galleries were closed when we visited - but then that means we have to return to see them.

The modern part ofthe museum was closed and we were a bit desappointed but if you go really all over the monument(on the roof...), it's a very special and nice moment of peace with a beautifull view...Not really for kids in my oppinion... Pour les français, ce musée est idéal pour un peu de culture et de calme, la vue... More

The building was amazing but so many of the areas were closed. The entire art collection was closed off a bit dispointing. The special photo exhibit was great. The Barcelona Pavillion at the base of the building was the a true experience. Being able to finally see where mid century modern was born was amazing.

The walk up was fantastic, pass the fountains and waterfalls - was free to go in when we visited, have to be honest did not view the art but went up to roof terrace for some more fantastic views.

Picturesque views. Climb to the roof and walk round the rooftops, seeing views from different angles. Modern section was closed when we visited and we still had to pay to see the classic religious art and a photography exhibition. Worth it for views, alone

The building and grounds and fountains are an amazing expression of the desires of a Catalan nation. The building is large and impressive and fountains are amazing. The art and the presentation seems to be a distraction from the main event which is the building itself. If you want to see great art, take this escalators in back of the... More

Such great art and culture. Would definately recommend this if going to Barcelona. It has 3 different parts. Photos of Barcelona over the years, medieval and 1 other which I can't remember the name of but such a vast range of things to look at and the cost is minimal.

It was really disappointing! Just a bunch of junk thrown together-not really art-the building is cool and it was free on our BCN card so that was worth something to us. We were there in the first Sat of the month and they had a party outside going on which was fun-a dj and dance music but be careful not... More
