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.

Delightful museum.

A great mix of Miro's paintings, so amusing and original. Displayed well in a modern building. And a great museum shop with fun gifts.

Unlike the Picasso Museum, you don't need to buy tickets in advance. the lines are short and manageable. The Miro exhibit is very enlightening and includes videos of Miro actually painting (and burning) his canvases.

We hapen to own a very small lithograph of Jen Miro, so were very interested in going to the museum. We were actually quite overwhelmed with the wonderful presentation of his works, and the entire site.

We got lost walking down from the fortress at Montjuic and stumbled on the Fundacio Joan Miro. I had read about it but it was not on the plan for the day. We had a "why not" moment and went in. What a treat! A small, elegant collection of Miro's works in a very architecturally intresting museum--we loved it! And... More

The collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and works on paper displayed at the Fundació is one of the most comprehensive selections of Miró’s oeuvre, offering a thorough overview of all the stages of his life and career. On the large terrace of the museum are colorful sculptures Miró. From here you can enjoy a unique look of Barcelona.

We bought ticket for the tourist bus on Monday and unfortunately found out the hard way that most attractions are shut on Mondays. I've been previously and it is a nice gallery. .

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.
