The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first principally with works from his own private collection, with a desire to set up an internationally recognised centre in Barcelona for Miró scholarship and contemporary art research, and to disseminate the collection. The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a dynamic centre in which Joan Miró's work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art. With an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organises temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st century artists as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research linked to the work of Miró and to contemporary art. The Fundació is located in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums anywhere in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them. The Fundació offers an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró's art and life, creating an enriching dialogue with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Not being an art buff I didn't know what to expect, but it was a great experience something completely different and the staff were very friendly. The exhibition I found was both bewildering and facinating

I loved this museum. The narrative accompanying the pieces really brought to light the societal shifts that underpinned modernism and the wide ranging ideas that inspired Miro's art. The Fondacion is to be congratulated on the tight curation and explanation of the collection. This is a must see in my books! I especially loved seeing the very young children in... More

A lifelong lover of Miro I had maybe outsize expectations . The gallery is in a lovely location above the city reached by funicular railway. I loved the space and the gallery and a few of the works . However I thought some could have been omitted and some major items were not there. Less is more IMHO. A few... More

The permanent collection is a source of wonder and delight. The Endgame exhibition was both intriguing and thought provoking.

We were so excited to know this artist was from Barcelona and see so much of his exciting work and those of his genre! The building is special in it's use of natural light and construction, the audio guide had such good explainations and the coffee shop was a pleasure to sit in, as well.

We went to this museum a few years back and returned today. While Miro's style may not be for everyone, for us this is an exceptional way to spend a couple of hours when in Barcelona. Miro's paintings, for the most part, make me smile out loud! The building itself is fascinating and the displays, well, superb! We'll return again... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
