  • Amazing museum! The building itself is architecturally speaking interesting, and the art is displayed in a smart way so the museum is easy to get around. You also get breathtaking views of Barcelona. And of course Joan Miró's art is wonderful!
  • I'm am art geek. The building is a masterpiece full of masterpieces. Loved the kinetic scuptures, building itself, the juxtaposition of Yoko Ono with Gilbert and George in the temporary space. Shame about the coffee, but I'll live. :-)
  • When you are in Barcelona, don't miss a visit to the Joan Miro museum You can spend hours learning about his art and look at both paintings and sculptures. He uses fantastic and distinctive colours in most of his coloured paintings. Don't miss the terrace for some great views of the area. It's normally €12 including the temporary exhibitions
  • If you already know a lot about Miro, you'll have a great time. If not, you'll need the audio guide to put what you're seeing in context. The visual descriptions are sparse and lack detail. That aside, the selection of work is very impressive and I learned a lot. Also: don't miss Calder's mercury fountain.
  • Amazing and fantastic place to know the work of Joan Miro, and observe the building construction. On the other hand, is good place to do special events. I recommend so much.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
