Visited this with my girlfriend while there was a Picasso exhibit going on and we really enjoyed it. I liked how the museum was divided into different time periods so you could see the style evolve over time.

Even if you are not interested in visiting inside the Art Museum you should visit this place. The views from out the front are amazing. You look over the magic fountains towards the Placa d' Espanya .

You will have to pay 12 euro to enter the museum and another 2 euro to go up to the roof. I agree with others comments. The museum is worth seeing for a couple of hours and the terrace in front of the museum contains... More
