  • I would recommend getting the excellent audio guide to help you navigate through this musuem. For the average people, it is a whole new world of abstract art. I find it very difficult to understand or relate to most of the artworks. It was challenging and provoking. You are not going to see beautiful paintings here.
  • Great place where you can learn something new about Joan Miró, check his sculptures and paintings. Downstairs there are also two shops with books and really nice designed souvenirs.
  • The museum was build in 1970s but the style of construction is timeless. It s not very big but gathering nice collections of Joan Milo.
  • Great museum! Being able to take photos in most of the spaces was refreshing. There's a huge variety of work on display, so you're very likely to find something here that captures your imagination. Quite a few of the pieces also have a little descriptive text associated with them, which at least allows you to understand a little more about the context or processes involved in some of the harder to appreciate pieces. Fully recommend!
  • One of the worst customer service i have ever experienced. I called the main reception and politely asked for someone speaking either english or french as i unfortunately don't speak Spanish. The lady on the other end of the line wouldn't even bother to listen to me or try to help me. Instead she'd joke with a coworker and ended up hanging up on me without so much of a word. I tried to call back and, i guess, the same girl answered. I obviously got a tad mad and she hung up again asking if i was calling from Canada. Now they won't even pick up the phone. Good job Miro !
