    Free entrance on the first Sunday of the month!

  • Douglon T.

    Beautiful building, huge collection, but presentation can be done better. The building is more interesting than the art

    The walk up is not bad, and the view is well worth the pay-off.

    Really great views of Barcelona! These views are much better than what you see from the sagrada familia towers!

    Not very accomodating for baby strollers (facilities + most of the staff)

    Once at the top, go left down the hill towards the cable cars and make your way to the castle behind it. Amazing views of the city!

    It is alone a reason to travel to Barcelona :) Besides fantastic and unique art, it is also very well organized, and displayed.

    So much fun. Learn how all the art movements you've heard of tie into Catalan history. Worth several hours.

    Great building, great view this place is a must see - and at 9 pm there is amazing the magic fountain with red, blue and green lights

    The view is great 👍 - The cafe outside is very expensive, 3 small water bottles and 2 cokes is 17 € - And then service is rude. Don't shop here, bring your own drinks :-)

    Temporary exhibition of photos was very good. The permanent one was OK, but definitely not the first place in Barcelona to visit.

    Dear travelers , especially single! Be careful running outdoors gang of pickpockets, consisting of 4 people. Your bags can be attacked if you are too careless. The faces of these crooks on the photo.

    Great collection, from 'Romanic' to 'modern art'. Beautiful museum, delicately designed and with great city views (getting up to the rooftoop is a must!). You won't regret it!

    Guillem Trilla · August 6, 2014
  • Bubble

    Comfortable couches, free wifi and excellent architecture at the ground floor! Take the elevator to the roof for a great view. They redesign the Modernism section now, they only exhibit a few pieces.

  • Evita U.

    Bring an interpreter if you don't speak Spanish or Catalan and want to know more about the expositions. Only few signs are in English.

    The museum is housed in a beautiful building set above Barcelona. The view from the top is amazing. You get a panoramic view of Barcelona there. Combing your museum visit with magic fountain show.

    Its an interactive museum, art&history classes are there, some artists paint and some art-lovers have activities inside with music, eyes-closed... Really interesting!
