The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there
  • Passeig de Gràcia • 5 min walk
  • Universitat • 5 min walk

Small and relatively expensive (12 euros) for what’s offered. Having said that, there are some nice pieces of furniture and stained glass. Also, they show work by Gaudi, Puig and another famous guy who I cannot remember right now. Also, we were introduced to some other reasonably decent creators of art deco. So what’s the bottom line? If you are coming to Barcelona for the first time and you are staying no more than 3 days, forget about this place. There are much better options for your time. Hell, the Picasso Museum is vastly superior. On the other hand, if you are coming back for a second or third time, like us, and you have used up most everything else, then what the heck, go. You get to kill 30-45 minutes of your day and if you enjoy this stuff, you will be satisfied with the time spent, if not the money.

We arrived early and had wonderfull experience being able to just wander around by ourselves and see some of the best examples of Gaudi’s furniture as well as pieces by his contemporaries. Being able to see the fine marquetry and lead light and decorative arts up close without being jostled or pushed or hurried was a real treat. I also have to say that their gift shop was great and the prices were well bellow the prices in the gift shops in the Gaudi houses

We have been a little surprised by some of the reviews of this 'museum', in so far as comments about the size of it, or the price of entrance. Without getting too pedantic about the definition of its title, perhaps you could call it an 'exhibition' rather than a museum, but even so, if you are a true enthusiast of this period, you won't be disappointed. If you are expecting to 'kill' an hour or two, then yes, you will find the entrance fee expensive, especially if you're not students or pensioners and can get a discount.
As in all Spanish museums, the area of display is light and airy; the exhibits, well documented, in several languages; and during our visit, it wasn't crowded or noisy. It was a real joy to be allowed so close to such magnificent pieces of furniture and be able to study the intricacy of the craftsmanship. Paintings and stained-glass work are such subjective art forms, but as I said, if you are a real enthusiast of this era, this museum is not to be missed. We spent almost two hours in there and would definitely visit it again, the next time we are in Barcelona.

A day before we went to Barcelona, I looked at the web to find a museum we had not seen yet and found this museum, located at Calle Balmes, 48. The museum opened in March, 2011. The museum is installed in a building designed by the Modernist architect Enric Sagnier in 1904. When we entered the museum we found that it had two floors with a space of 1000 square meters. At once we were overwhelmed by the art we found in the museum, Modernist art at its best. On the ground floor there was the furniture section with furniture designed by Gaudi, Gaspar Homar and Joan Busquets. There was furniture that used the art of marquetry, many using 40 different types of wood. The marquetry designs on the furniture looked like paintings, because so many types of wood were used, each with its own color. There were beautiful mirrors with spectacular designs. The furniture included cabinets, dining tables, and office furniture, all looking like art objects. The furniture designed by Gaudi was meant to be used at Casa Mila, Casa Battlo, and Casa Calvet.
Downstairs was the section of painting and sculpture with work by Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Joaquim Mir, Josep Limona and Eusebi Arnau. Arnau was a sculptor who worked on the decoration of the wonderful Palau de la Musica and the Hospital de la Santa Creu I Sant Pau. There were stained glass panels created by Maumejean that were spectacular. Joaquim Mir created a trio of stained glass panels with flowers and wildlife that were simply beautiful. Antoni Rigalt I Blanch has two stained glass panels, one of the Virgin of Montserrat and another of Sant Jordi. This is the only museum dedicated solely to Catalan Modernism. There are more than 350 works of art designed by 42 artists.

This museum shows how wealthy Barcelonians would have furnished their homes during the period 1890-1920 or so. There is a good collection of art nouveau furniture, several pianos, stained glass, a stunning mosaic elevator shaft, and some interesting pieces designed by Gaudi.

We enjoyed this reallly nice smaller museum. it contains many painting, furnishing, etc. of the moderisme period. We reallly enjoyed it and were sorry to see that so few people were visiting. I promised to post something about it for that reason.

Thank you! At present, we have a temporary exhibition about Cusachs, an artist, which also was a soldier. However, we usually have Modernism (Art Nouveau / Modern Style) on both floors.

A very pleasant, quiet, museum on two floors. Nothing in itself was amazing but the total effect was well received and, at times, amusing. Definitely worth a visit.

This small museum of furniture and decorative items is a real treat for fans of modernismo/art nouveau. It also has a small but interesting gift shop.
