  • Beautiful, wonderful views ... The access is easy via escalators. All the stairs at night has sources with water ...

  • To get to this Museum from the monumental staircase is already very pleasant (and not very tiring using escalators) thanks to beautiful scenery. But once ... it is appreciated even if it were in a Dungeon! The Catalan Romanesque art section, in addition to the perfect layout, you can admire the undoubted masterpieces that, among other things, put well in evidence the originality of Catalan works; from gape! The other sections of the Museum are more than worth a visit. Excellent and well discipline deli inputs, which allows you to use a ticket on two different days (study the rules on the Museum's website).

  • I enjoyed every second in this museum ! Bought a ticket and went in without any expectations. I was blown away by the paintings and the archeological things in this museum. It looks amazing, its very clean (the toilets too!) and you can use the bought ticket to return the next 2 days, so if you want to recheck something you don't have to buy another ticket. The location of the museum is worth a visit itself. Located on a mountain with the magic fountain underneath it. Looks absolutely beautiful.
  • Outstanding structure, and beautiful looking building. Long walking but enjoyable to reach it. Yet, the building is almost empty inside. It has few items about the modern art!
  • A beautiful museum on Catalan art. While many tourists take pictures of the building from the bottom of the hill, very few actually venture into the building which makes visiting a surprisingly pleasant experience.
  • Nice building, great view over most of the city as long as the many tourists don't block it. Has even a small Café in front of it with the possibility to sit down.
  • Interesting exposition and well organised space. But I wouldn't recommend audiogide as it not very useful.
