as an architect that was inspired by Mies van de Rohe this is the must see building which has influenced modern architecture the world over having been a little disappointed with the impossible crowds and queues for the Gaudi buildings, we couldn't believe our luck to find this practically deserted! nice stop off en-route to Joan Miro Fundation too.

Very uninformative, provides no context whatsoever for the lay person. Would avoid unless you're an architect or a fan of architecture.

I was disappointed by this building. Bear in mind it is a re-construction. This is not the original 1920's building but is a 1980's re-construction. It is an example of a fine piece of architecture, but in the wrong physical setting. How much more impressive it would have been if it had been set in acres of parkland of its... More

It is so understated next to all the Gaudi, etc. Really an interesting juxtaposition. There is an entrance fee of 5 euros

This is not a childrens' attraction and there is not much to do here (we took about a thousand photos of the building from different angles), but 5 EUR to contribute to the preservation of a building 70 yeares ahead of its time with Barcelona chairs appropriately displayed seems a reasonable fee to me.

It's a site that many tourists either don't know is there are walk past without paying the fee to go inside. If you're a fan of modernism, this is a must see. It's perfect in it's simplicity and elegance.

Well, you have to be into architectural history to appreciate this pavillon. My wife thought it looked like a large restroom!! However, it's a landmark piece of modern architecture when everything else was super-ornate and flowery (like the museum MACA nearby). If you're a fan, it's a must.
