Overview
More
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 enjoyed Miro's art. Was also great to see so many young school children enjoying the colours and stories of the works on display. Beautiful location as well.

My favorite artist is Joan Miro so I was very excited to visit this place. It shows different sides of this great artist. I loved it.

Superior experience to the "sister location" in Palma, Mallorca. Here you get a feel for the different styles of Miro during the different decades which is quite different from the "standard" Miros you find in other museums. Well worth a visit if you're in town.

With so many choices in Barcelona and so little time, we had to be discriminate in choosing the attraction to visit. Fondacion Miro was an obvious choice for us. As the funicular to Montjuic was not in service when we went there, we had to...More

This museum dedicated to Joan Miro is a beautiful structure full of wonderful Miro works, very colorful, very approachable modern art. It is set in Montjuic Parc, so getting there is half the fun.

This is a world famous modern art museum & it's very nice, but my favorite place to spend the day in Barcelona is Parc Guell; 37 acres of Antoni Gaudi's buildings, towers, fountains, sculptures, mosaics of metals, glass & ceramics. It was built from 1900...More

I had to visit this place after discovering Miro a few years ago. Admittedly, it's not everyone's 'cup of tea' but if you appreciate art in all it's forms, you'll enjoy the foundation. A lot of Miro's works are here, plus exhibitions from different artists....More

It was a nice museum in which you can really see the evolution of Miro's work thoughout his life but I was quite disapointed by the fact that there are hardly any other artists' pieces.
