  • It was a free entry day and this is why I came here and I loved it! Beautiful art to observe and the service was nice. And you definitely have to see the patio. It's wonderful for photo shoots and for walking breaks.
  • A large museum spanning many floors with a vast selection of items renting from antiquity to basically the industrial age. There are guided as well audio tours available and I would recommend either of these as there is very little detail given for much in display, many with no plaques at all to even give a hint of what you are looking at our even the era from where it came.
  • Interesting, especially the top two floors. The bottom floors are mostly filled with religious sculptures. The museum is free to visit on Sundays after 15:00 (the entire day on a first Sunday of the month) The problem is, however, that there are no labels. Sometimes it is not even clear what is the purpose of the object we were looking at. They need either much better labels and/or an audioguide.
  • An amazing museum with A LOT of things to look at. Definitely one of our best visits in barcelona. Be here on good time before they close, at least three hours. Because they have a huge collection.
  • You can come do free and sit in this shady cool court yard
