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.

Really lovely building and selection of art work. The views from outside are lovely. I went on a school trip so didn’t get much time to look for myself.

Fundació Joan Miró is a purpose-built museum to house works by Joan Miró, 1893-1983. The Mediterranean rationalist building, 1975, designed by Jose Luis Sert is a masterpiece of 20th Century architecture.

The art was interesting. Learning about the artist/founder/financier (Joan Miro funded the museum with his own money) was equally interesting. However, with all there is to do in Barcelona, I would not make this a top site to visit. If you're there for more than...More

There is some quite good art here, but most of it is fairly abstract and I had the distinct impression Miro, though talented, was somewhat ambivalent to selling his art so did some fairly odd things to his paintings, particularly in his latter years. We...More

If you like modern art, this is a must-see. It is full of paintings, sculptures, and lot's about Miro's life for you to enjoy. Very good exhibition space and well laid-out.

El museu està ubicat en un gran parc, de manera que hi ha molt espai fora per passejar o seure mentre que l'altre està visitant el museu. (translated from English response).
