Skip the Line: Park Guell Admission Ticket

245 reviews
Admission tickets for Park Güell, one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, typically sell out quickly; however, by buying tickets online in advance, you can guarantee entry, avoid the long lines, and save time on the day. Instead of queueing in the heat, explore Park Güell—including the Dragon Staircase, Hypostyle Room, and more—at your own pace.

A well curated collection showing local artist views through different key point in history (from WWW to now). It is interesting to see how artists express their feelings about common topics like love, war, pain, life.. in a very different ways from normal people like me (with no artistic tendency :D). On the day i visited, the museum had some art event for kids on the first floor, lucky me to have a chance to see all the budding artists express themselves through drawing. Overall, a relaxing and self exploration stroll in a well designed modern building. Recommend if you have time and want to try something different.

Upon seeing the museum from the outside I was impressed with the modernist design and the natural light that reached inside the building. Once inside, I liked the way the modern, light filled design continued throughout the entire length of the structure. As for the exhibitions, I really enjoyed the Charlotte Posenenske exhibit as well as the chronological timeline of the history of art at MACBA and how international world events helped shape the ever evolving art scene. The Calder sculptures are amazing! The Takis exhibit was mind blowing and just plain fun. Adults and children will really enjoy his exhibit. I spent more than two hours here. Be sure to check out the art surrounding the museum including the Keith Haring AIDS mural (c. 1989) done just prior to his death.

Visited the museum with two teens and a seven year old, and all were very impressed and enthusiastic. The current display - Takis' works with magnets, was full of wonder. The girls were mesmerised by the moving and musical creations. The museum itself is a vast and interesting space, though not overwhelming. The internal ramps of the museum mimic and bring in the skateboarding action in the square outside. Active, vibrant spaces, both inside and out. Highly recommended. Entry was free.

Modern building with easy access to upper floors, rich and interesting collection, with information and explanations for all art works. Taki's temporary collection realky spectacular. Someone can use the same ticket several times within a month.

I love modern art and I really enjoyed MACBA. The timeline exhibition is mostly catalán but showed quite a diversity. I loves seeing works by Jenny Holzer and Christian Boltanski! If nothing else there is always the great café and shop!
