I arrived here at 2pm on a Saturday, right before the free hours start at 3pm on Saturdays only. So I decided to relax, order a coffee and take in the amazing views of the city from the small square in front of the museum. The free hours started promptly at 3pm and while I was impressed by the excellent... More

We climbed to the top and then to the bottom. You simply must take a picture at every level. The fountains and architecture alone make this a must do on your trip.

Came here twice just to sit outside, ear gelato and enjoy the scenic view. I didn't go to into the museum. But why a great place to have this structure. I enter eyed the mountain from the opposite side (beach side) and walked towards this end by getting a chance to see everything on the mountain. WIFI is everywhere so... More

The building and exhibits are beautiful, definitely worth the visit, and is quite affordable. The view from the terrace is also amazing, and it is only 3 EUR to go up to the terrace (It is included in the ticket price if you visit the museum as well). However...most of the exhibit is only in Spanish or Catalonian. This really... More

Though repetitive the collection of Catalunyan Medieval artwork especially the old church apses dating 1000 years old are beautiful and immaculate. Good collection of other artwork till the modern nouvea art of Barca and Catalunya. Great spot on Mont Juic

We loved our visit to the Museu Nacional. The building is impressive and beautiful (in a city with memorable architecture). We loved sitting on the front steps to the museum, watching the fountain and views of the city. Some of the galleries are closed for renovation, but there is still a small gallery with art that you likely studied in... More

My husband is not a museum buff but he really loved this place. There is so much history in this place I could have spent hours in there. Pretty much everybody have covered the best parts. So I'll just say go and drink it all in.

It was a well presented museum, and lovely restaurant, a haven when the rest of Barcelona was overrun with too many tourists.
