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.

This a fairly large exhibition, in a large airy building, If you are a fan of Miro, then you will enjoy this place and the journey through his works and inspiration. I am always pretty open minded about art, but I can't say I was inspired or convinced of a wonderful talent - but of course that is a matter... More

Sat high up on Montjuic is the Fundacio Joan Miro and if you are a lover of his art then this is the place for you. Ordinarily it would be reached by the Montjuic funicular railway but that was closed for annual manitenance so we got the 55 bus from Placa Catalunya which picks you up outside the Apple store...

Most obscure paintings I've seen, weird titles, and such a long time to go around. The chocolate cake in the cafe is not chocolate:(

The best thing about the Fundación Miró is its unusual location halfway up Montjuic close to the Funicular station which makes for very good views over the city from the Museum Grounds. The collection itself is definitely worth seeing as it provides a good introduction into Miro´s work, however, it is not a must-see as many of his most famous... More

Venue is excellent, layout good and plenty of space to exhibit Miro's "Art". But do make sure you know what you are going to see before you traipse 700ft up a hill for the privilege. If this is great art, then my grandchildren are destined for greatness. Indeed, I am not sure why I am not a world renowned artist... More

A very interesting visit especially as I hadn't realized how prolific and diverse Miro had been. The gallery was well thought out, cleverly organised and informative. While not my favourite artist, the display itself and the gallery space was one of the best I've visited.

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.
