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 is a wonderful place. Lovely building and a fabulous collection of work by Miro. It's a bit away from the centre of town so getting there is either by taxi, tour bus(red route) or bus. If you have a Barcelona card then entrance is free. Being so far from town there is less likelihood of long queues. There is... More

Buy tickets on line to avoid long line ups and plan to be a few hours this was simply the best audio toured experience while in Barcelona. It is a well organized collection and for those interested in Miro lots to learn through the audio tour with additional information on techniques used and even some video clips. Really could have...

We didn't know much about Miro going into this place, but we came out thinking him equal to Picasso. The collection is very large, and amazing across many types and styles of art. It has a few things from other artists (we were estatic to find Calder's Mercuy Fountain here). Totally worth it to see his contribution of 20th century... More

Beautiful modern museum on top of Mont Juif, which has fabulous views of the city. Very comprehensive collection of the works of Miro, another Catalan artistic titan.

Take the local bus to Parc Montjuic from th Plaza Espana - much cheaper than a taxi. The exhibition building is architecturally modern but tasteful, with a cafe and a courtyard with sculptures and trees. The halls are full of Miro's paintings and sculptures, and describes his life.

Maybe its not as popular as museo Picasso but is way much better. I wasnt a big fun of Miro but I enjoyed my visit very much. If you are planning to visit Montjuic mountain you should include fundacio Joan Miro in your visit.

Plan your visit to tie in with a visit to Montjuic Castle. Give yourself the day to take the cable car up to the top, take in the great views of the city, wander around the castle, through the gardens and meander down the slopes to the welcome coolness of the Miro Fundacio. The Fundacio displays a wide range of... More

This museum's Miro holdings and accompanying Audio guide are spectacular. Do not miss if you're a Miro fan and would like to understand his thinking, philosophies and work more. In our opinion this museum is far superior to the Picasso museum in Barcelona. TIPS: 1) go in the morning by 10:30 and it's not crowded at all (we had not... More

My wife loves art galleries and gets me to go with her. We both rented the audio guides and we learned all we wanted to know (and then some!) about Joan Miro. He lived in turbulent times and that is reflected in many of the pieces we viewed. The gallery and grounds are beautiful. Although many other visitors were there,... 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.
