  • Great view from the surrounding areas, we did a quick visit and got a good feel for the art, but only an hour until closing.. Can walk downhill to it from the the Milo museum. Be there for sunset.  more »
  • Even if museums arent your thing, go here for the breathtaking views of Barcelona. Unreal. Go at dusk right around closing time for the museum. You wont be disappointed.  more »
  • The museum is built on Montjuic for the Universal Exhibition in 1929, and houses one of the most complete Romanesque art collections in the world. From Picasso, De Goya, and Cannaletto, it is a place ...  more »

  • I loved this museum and could spend hours in there! It has a surprisingly large collection of art and artifacts so it's definitely a whole day affair if you're interested in museums. The lighting is perfect, the rooms spacious with just enough seating arrangements. Very impressed and had a great time :)
  • High on the hill looking over the city; Barcelona puts its cultural and historical treasures almost literally on a pedestal. Glory to a people who care about their past as much as they do their future. For the avid traveler, the gallery is informative, thoughtful and easy to digest. Whilst the gallery doesn’t hold a large amount of well known pictures; one must remember that the fame of art can be a fashion; and when viewed in the suggested order the pictures they do have tell a surprising well structured narrative about Catalan and Spanish society.
  • It's a huge place with different exhibitions. The temporary one was Gala/Dali. Also we managed to visit the medieval one. I could easily spend a day there but unfortunately our time was limited to 3 hours. Highly recommended to the art lovers.
  • Lots of art work and different art styles. The art and sculptures are incredible. The museum itself is pretty cool as well. They have plenty of facilities as well as a cafe and gift shop.
  • Five stars just for the place. We were tired and didn't actually visit the Museum interior. Also was running out of time to see properly it was our last day in Barcelona. Breathtaking location, great photo ops. Construction shows pride with which the location was selected and as a important monument for the locals.
