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.

We knew very little about Miro before this visit and cursory looks at his work were baffling and just not our cup of tea. Intending a quick look around on way down from the castle, we ended up staying three hours. Much of this was due to the information available enhanced by a wonderful audio guide; probably one of the... More

Fantastic building. You can get there by getting metro to Paral-Lel end of line 3 and then the funicular (included in your ticket) so a great journey. Ticket for museum is 12 euros including the extra show so all good.... except you know I am not sure I like any of his stuff after he got all anti-painting. There are... More

We like visiting Museums and have been to many but till that visit we have never been big fans of Miro's art. After visiting the Museum I must say that Miro is still underrated compared to some other artists of his caliber. Museum is a nice place to spend 2 hours. Great view as well.

They keep great Miro pieces on view and have excellent exhibitions that change from time to time. This time they had a very conceptual show of artist Nicolás Lamas. I enjoyed it as well. The location of this Miró Foundation is also superb. You can enjoy great views of the city and walk the beautiful paths of the park below... More

This is a wonderful museum dedicated to one incredible artist. A bit out of the way, but easily reachable by metro and train connector. All one ticket. Beautiful views on Barcelona. The museum is large and filled with beautiful paintings and some ceramics. Great in and outdoor cafe. Dedication to one artist as in the Rodin and Van Gogh musea... More

I'd been to Fundacio Joan Miro in 2000 and returned in 2016. It's still one of my favorite museums of all time. The breadth and range of the works that they have is incredible. It was such a joy to explore and spend hours in front of Miro's works. I also liked the sculptures on the balcony and the Calder... More

The long walk from our hotel to the museum was worth it. The place enormous with over 20 different rooms. Each section is roughly divided into time periods so that guests can see Miró's transition into different forms of art. Each piece contains a brief description and each room explains the different symbols that are repeated in the artist's work.... More

The stark white modernist building is the home of a major collection of work by Miró. It is easily reached by public transport. The museum is a few minutes walk from the entrance to the Funicular de Montuic, which runs from Paral.lel metro station. The price of the funicular is included in your metro ticket. The works of art are... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
