apart from the obvious Spainish painters represented the section on Catalan Romanesque Churches was stunning both in an informative and presentational sense and in content. up there with best exhibitions I have visited. The aurak guide also v good. Cafe/Bistro on top pricey but pretty good food with amazing views.

I don't consider myself a fan of Romanesque and Gothic art but this museum has a fascinating collection that is artfully displayed. Well worth the visit, both inside and out as the setting is beautiful as well. There are lots of escalators to help navigate the hill.

We visited the museum in July and it was packed!!! A lot of waiting outside and inside to see most significant art pieces. I haven't visited many art museum to make a comparison but it gives a great feeling, even goose pumps. The collections was rich and the presentation is great. We visited the museum on the way to the... More

The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya is a wonderful museum that has plenty of art. My wife and I spent 1.5 hours there. I especially enjoyed the Carmen Thyssen Collection. The Romanesque and Gothic collections are also great to see. The modern collection was closed to visitors when we went, which was a disappointment.

The beauty of the building and fountains is amazing! So amazing, the pickpockets count on the fact that you will be mesmerized and not notice someone bumping into you. Not much in the way of Police presence. Do not let this deter you! Just keep your valuables secure.

I visited the museum mainly because of its collection of catalan romanesque art. And this collection is the most disturbing, beautiful, yes: exotic art collection I have seen in a long time. Although not unfamiliar with the art of those times, I never experienced such awe and sheer perplexion, not only of the incredible high quality of the pieces shown... More

This is a huge museum - it's best to allow a minimum of three hours. Although it's not customary to find museums on my itinerary, this is one that's not to be missed. It's a total package and the setting overlooking the fountains is priceless.

This is an extremely beautiful art museum and both the permanent and temporary exhibits are worthwhile. I am giving it only 4 stars because the modern art galleries were closed during my visit. While it would have been nice to see these, there are nevertheless some interesting collections here. I found the Medieval collection extremely interesting, especially the way the... More

I wanted to see the modern art, but half the museum was closed for work!! They did have a pretty good sampling in the temporary exhibit space. so I went to see the gothic and Romanesque sectioned\ and was pleasantly surprised, not gloomy at all.

This is a great museum with a great collection of Medieval Romanesque art. We like how the rooms were laid out, with the frescoes in recreated structures where they were found. The view from the roof was also amazing. We visited in September and all of the 19th and 20th Century art is not on exhibit while they renovate. We... More
