Fast Track Sagrada Familia Guided Tour

Exploring La Sagrada Familia without a guide means you may miss out on the UNESCO World Heritage Site's hidden details and secret symbols. Make the most of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpiece and beat lines often in excess of three hours on a skip-the-line tour. A choice of entry times allows you to be flexible with your vacation schedule: Opt for the earliest time slot for a less-crowded experience at the Barcelona icon.

It was great we saw videos of the process, and the explanations behind the creation of the perfumes. Very educational

Many perfumes you've heard of from the 40's on up to present. Also bottles and other vessels for perfumes, ointments and incense from ancient Greece, ancient Egypt, Japan, etc. It's in the back of a perfume store, so if you're inspired you can buy some perfume of your own. I like small quirky museums and I like perfume and I was staying at a guesthouse across the street, so this was a very nice way to spend about 45 minutes. It's on Passeig de Gracia not far from the "Street of Discord" with the 3 moderniste buildings.

I am a perfume bottle collector so I loved this museum. You enter through a perfume shop. This little gem is located in the back. The clerk was friendly and turned on the lights, leaving us alone to explore at our leisure. They have a lovely collection spanning several centuries. I really wanted to see the bottle owned by Marie Antoinette. I was not disappointed. If you love perfume bottles, don't miss this one.

Cocopop25 summed it up nicely. I was really looking forward to this and we hunted it out but the whole experience was disappointing. We had to wait a while to buy a ticket to the museum which is located at the back of a store that is not welcoming at all. The lady took our 10 euro (it's 5 euro entry per person) and told us which perfumes we could smell. There are only a few available to smell which is understandable given most of them are old and locked behind glass. Expect to see lots of bottles and there is no information relating to the history. We managed to find a brochure on a stand but it was just a general overview. This has the potential to be a really cool place to visit but it needs a multi-lingual guide or audio guide to make it meaningful. You do get a discount in the shop afterwards if you choose to buy it but we didn't connect with the store at all. Staff were disinterested and avoided making eye contact with us as we left the museum. We did purchase from a fabulous perfumery called The Perfumery located at Baixada de Santa Eulàlia, 3, 08002 Barcelona, Spain so would recommend here if you are looking to buy a scent. Les Topettes, Carrer de Joaquín Costa, 33, 08001 Barcelona, also offered a different style of scents and great service

Dear visitor, We are sorry that you didn't enjoy our museum. Nowadays we are working in online resources, in order to provide more information to the visitors. As you could appreciate, the collection is very extensive and the space is limited, we prefer not to interfere in the visual experience. We can provide private tours with guide, but it needs to be booked in advance. Also, we try to separate the Museum visit and the perfumery business, both are different entities. We don't like that when people come to visit the Museum, will feel that is in order to increase the perfumery business. Even though everybody is free to ask to the shop employers about perfumes. We will keep in mind your review, in order to improve our service.

This was located very close to our hotel, so we stopped in to check it out. Although there is certainly an impressive array of perfumes and cosmetics inside, they are all things that are for sale...more like a store than a museum.

Dear Sir, The Perfume Museum is in the backside of the store, in a big hall-room. Inside the Museum there are not objects for sale, unfortunatelly most probably you didn't reach the Museum. So we hope you will visit us again and in the perfumery the shopkeeper will be able to inform you how to enter the Museum.
