I spent at least 2 hours doing the Romanesque and the Gothic art collections with the audio guide. There is an ENORMOUS Gothic art collection at this museum, so that alone could take several hours. The Romanesque is fascinating and is currently interspersed with Picasso's works inspired by the Romanesque. This is a wonderful museum that is completely worth the... More

If art is not your main thing, come anyway! The site itself is worth it! The breathtaking views of Barcelona, up to Tibidabo, the park in which the museum stands, the fountain, the closeness to the subway, everything is amazing! And yes, there are beautifully curated expositions and also their permanent exhibitions are sublime! And there's also a restaurant -... More

Really enjoyed by day at the museum which made modern art easy to understand. The works were well planned and the exhibits flowed logically. A lovely thought provoking time.

This has pretty much everything from a good modern collection to medievil and religious art all related to Catalonia. The modern collection has recently been re-organised and now provides an interesting socio-political context. The walk up to the gallery and the view from the front is in itself worth it. If you go more than twice a year it is... More

The early period collection of religious art was stunning. I don't think I've ever seen better! The multi museum pass is a good deal and this museum and Fondacion Joan Miro can be done in the same day if you have the stamina!

An Excellent opportunity to learn about the history of Art in Catalunya. It covers all the different eras of art in that area, with an extremely professional way.

Fascinating look at Spanish art the frescos were amazing but I enjoyed the modern section better as religious art blurs after a bit if you aren't religious But def worth a visit I now get Picasso

Good viewpoint across Barcelona, and also as you approach the magic fountains! Be extra vigilant in this area as there are a lot of street performers/ people selling drinks who are there to distract you whilst an accomplice attempts to pick pocket you.

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.
