Gorgeous museum and a large selection of quality art collections. There is an app so be sure to ask the ticket agent as they have a sign with details. It is not called the typical name. I am attaching a photo with the info. The art has little English translations therefore hard to appreciate the history and story without the app. We did not see many people with the app and it definitely made the experience so much better. This is worth a visit for sure! Especially the Romanesque art collection with many saved paintings from old Catalonian churches that were destroyed. It is a fabulous display. We spent 3 hours and that was barely enough time.

This is not a very busy museum. There's a short line from the entrance due to the numerous group tours entering the museum. A short walk from the parking lot. Facade of the museum is grand. Museum is huge and spacious. Clean and nice restroom. Permanent exhibits are well planned and organized. Not crowded inside the museum.

You don’t need to book tickets before you get there.there is a family discount we paid for two adults and a child 16.8 euros with the terrace visit. Don’t skip it there is the best view of the city. The museum is established in a wonderful building and all of the collection have something to say. Unfortunately there is no info in English and if you want details I suggest you get the tour guide

The National Art Museum in Barcelona houses an amazing collection of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque art alongside it's collections of fine arts from 19th and 20th century. Some of the most outstanding items are in the religious art collection such as the Romanesque "Apse of Sant Climent de Taüll", a fresco from Church of St. Climent de Taüll and "Resurrection and Descent of Christ into Limbo" in the Gothic collection.

Not to be missed in Barcelona. Don't forget, entry is free every Saturday after three.

he Art Museum building sits on the side of the hill overlooking Espania Plaza. From the metro stop on the plaza, you walk along the broad parkway up multiple levels to reach the museum itself. If you are lucky you get to make this walk when the fountains are active (they are not active all the time) and then the feel is like approaching a magnificent palace.
There are escalators along the way taking you from terrace level to terrace level so the walk is not exhausting. Those in wheelchairs or with physicial limitation should consider the extra expense of taxi or tourbus, although it would be a great shame to miss the fountains and waterfalls.
The building is massive with vaulting high ceilings which are important to the displays. There are only 4 permanent displays in the building - Romanesque, Medieval, Classical, and Modern which means that each exhibit has a great deal of space (I was in the Hermitage once and everything was so jammed together you saw nothing, really).
It was the Romanesque exhibit that blew me away. I went in expecting dull exhibits with sections of mosaics and frescos. Instead, the incredible spaciousness allows the museum to recreate entire Naves, Apses, and Grottos and place the art in the architecture the way it would have been seen 800 -900 years ago.
The result is more than impressive, it is awe inspiring. Well worth the trip up even if you don't see the other exibits.
Audioguides in multiple languages are available and well worth the expense (do not tour Romanesque without it).
Seniors over 65 are free admission and a discount on the audioguide.

We walked right in--so don't know if you need a skip the line ticket. I think this one was free for me since I am 65. It was medieval art, some of which was very violent. I wouldn't think it would be very appropriate for children.

Wonderfull building which contains a multitude of art from all genres , we were there in Oct 2019 and they had closed off the 1st floor for some work so we couldnt access the modernist area but the rest of the museum was full of interesting stuff like the temporary exhibition of a local celebrity photographers shots from his career of over 50 years of pics which was worth the entrtance fee alone.
The building is impressive inside and out and the cafe on the entrance steps must have one of the best views as you enjoy your cappuccino anywhere in Barcelona

The Catalonian art gallery is located in an impressive domed building atop a hill, at the end of the Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina.
I am not an art buff, but still enjoyed my visit and felt €12 was a reasonable price (it includes a second visit within the month if you want one). Went on a Friday in October and there were not many people there.
We were under a time pressure so my friend and I agreed we would walk round everything (except the coin section) but at quite a fast pace. We achieved both floors, some photo stops, the roof and a café stop in about 2.5 hours.
The best part was walking around this gorgeous building including the huge central auditorium. There is a posh restaurant with city views up the top, which would have been very special to eat in if time had allowed.
Oh and yes, the art! Well, it is VERY spacious in the display rooms and easy to follow the numbered rooms in sequence. Downstairs was all Romanesque art (11th century) which I found very interesting and colourful. Upstairs is ‘modern’ stuff, but that means anything from the 11th to 20th centuries, so don’t expect it to be all contemporary. It includes some Gaudí furniture and also one Picasso painting.

The Museum is well worth a visit to see all the beautiful works of art from all eras. The collection is quite easy to walk through and could be done in around 2 hours altogether. Lots of the original pieces have been taken directly from the churches which is quite interesting. The museum itself is over looking the city of Barcelona and is nice area to sit out on.
