Beautiful museum inside and out - the fountain show on weekends is nice. The collection is varied, including incredible Art Deco furniture. Very good gift shop for chic, well-priced gifts.

This was one of the last things we did and we almost were too tired to do it, but pushed on and ended up loving it. There is a restaurant there, so if you time things right you can do the museum until 7, have dinner at 8 and look out over the Font Magica fountains that evening at 9.

In the magical neighborhood of Montjuic, after a long walk, you find this amazing huge palace, that is the Museum. If you don´t want to get it, just visiting outside is already great enough.

I wasn't to excited about the visit beforehand, but I have to admit it is well worth it: even just the romanic section, with the detached frescos should not to be missed.

This s free for seniors, which was great for us. I wanted to look at the contemporary area, but we could only find one painting! So I'm glad we didn't have to pay. We searched and hunted, and found lots of romantic and medieaval paintings, all rather the same and religious, but not what I was really after. The shop... More

My husband and I visited this museum on day three of our visit to Barcelona. In addition to the fantastic art, the museum has one of the best views of the city from high atop the elevated area. There are quite a few stairs. A gentleman was playing a guitar which was a perfect addition to the view.

I did not go inside but the architecture is stunning, there is a beautiful park to wander around and the view across the town is amazing. There is also the added advantage of external escalators for those less able to climb stairs.

This is a great collection. Many artists we don't hear about at home and they are terrific. Great painting, sculpture, poster design, furniture design and more. Nicely laid out...always interesting. If you have the time and notion then head to the roof terrace. If you think the view is good from the front of the building, just wait! The great... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
