    We spent the day. The view outside the top of the museum was breathtaking. We enjoyed all the Catholic art the museum offered. The architecture of the museum is as good as the art, as a former palace.

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

    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!

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

    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.

    Well worth the short ascension: the view from the terrace is brilliant (best enjoyed w/ a beer)! The restaurant serves a correct lunch, and the entrance to the museum is free on Saturdays after 3pm.

    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.

    Was not essy to find, but when u get there you are impressed even before you enter. No que. Just few people. Different kinds of arts: baroqe, gothic, numismatic etc. But more impressive from outside.

    From the Plaça d'Espanya, the view up to the Palau Nacional is breathtaking. We suggest you take the walk up and have a look.

    Beautiful building and great view of the city. Great collection of Catalonian art, especially Romanesque. Only complaint is that not all information is available in English. Worth a visit.

    Stop at the front door instead of the back of the castle as you have to go around to the front and it's quite a distance.Beautiful pieces inside and excellent view from the terrace cafe.
