You can get into the museum and the temporary exhibition at the hall (or the auditorium) for free. That's good enough to see if you don't bother about paintings so much.

The guide book we used gave this museum only mild endorsement. We found the exhibition of Romanesque are to be beautiful and superbly displayed. It is a real gem for those who have a love of art from this period. We also delighted in walk through the fair grounds with it fountains, stair ways and and shady paths.

It sits atop a hillside overlooking the city. You will be amazed by the diverse collection and the city views.

The museum is ok; however, all the sightseeing on your way to the MNAC is well worth it. The view is spectacular and you could sit right outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the people and view.

My wife and I walked to the Palace from the Rambla - about 30 minutes on a pleasant, sunny day. The Palace was worth the effort. Wonderful vista of the city skyline, beautiful fountains, a welcome police presence, and available WCs and refreshment stands. An added plus is the ready access to the Olympic Park just behind the palace. It's... More

The building itself is worth seeing and it's a easy walk from the subway. Once you get up there is also a great view of the city. I didn't like all the collections especially the Roman art and there wasn't English descriptions on all the work so that was really disappointing.

No trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit to MNAC. The Romanesque art collection is world-class. We set aside an hour to walk the beautifully manicured grounds and enjoyed the fountains.

In my opinion, after Sagrada familia is the second best building in Barcelona. Sadly, I was there on a Monday, so it was close and no water show either. But still I enjoy it. Just disconnect for 10 minutes from everything and enjoy the sunset!

Much of the work was Christian historical which my husband and & have no appreciation for, especially many paintings showing vulgar torture scenes. The building inside is modern & spacious.

Great collection of art and the building itself is incredibly impressive. The walk up to it in itself is excellent. Must see attraction for anyone visiting Barcelona.
