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.

don’t bother to spend time at the Fundacio Joan Miro if you don’t wish to delve into this artist’s oeuvre. However, if you’re interested in a good introduction to both the artist and his life, invest into the long audio guide option. It’s definitely worth it.

Miro's works are now scattered all over the planet, but the Fundacio museum houses an impressive collection of the artist's works, from early to late periods. A must see for lovers of 20th century art.

Viewing Barcelona from the museum roof terrace is exhilarating. My husband and ai enjoyed the Miro, the architecture and the setting a lot. My 28 year old daughters did not know Miro and did not enjoy. We were tired of listening to audio tours, so it didn't help. Before our scheduled time of 6 pm, we enjoyed sitting at the... More

The museum is offering a amazing space for Miro's productions. The space is vast and not crowded. Great conditions to enjoy Miro's... The museum is located on Mont Juic offering a nice view on the surroundings. Not a lot of restaurant offering in the area.

We got the Art Ticket in advance of our trip. There was so much to do, we only managed three of the six places where you can skip the queue, and two of those were on a Sunday afternoon when it would have been free anyway! The Miro exhibition was great, though what was disappointing for us was the better... More

If modern art is of interest make time to visit this museum. Located on a hill in Sant Montjuic park with vistas of Barcelona it contains a large collection of pieces by Miro. The building is every bit as interesting as the art inside. Tickets can be purchased on site or in advance. A strenuous walk uphill from Espana metro... 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.
