  • To find isolated from Central ... Very well taken care of and the works are many ... The gadget and eating area estate real ... The whole show is very well maintained ... .... A visit isn't bad, if you love this kind of art.

  • Culturally it remains to make a stop because it is interesting to understand the approach of Miro, even if his works are sometimes reserved for informed people.

  • 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!
  • Amazing museum. Not 100% sure you can take pictures, but I took a few and wasn't scolded or anything unlike the Picasso museum. My favorite sculpture is the mercury fountain. If you bring a bag, you will have to place it one of the lockers that are available for 1 euro, which is returned on exit. Plan to spend at least 2 hours in the museum and enjoy all the marvelous and unique works of Miró.
  • Loved this museum. Wonderful display of Milo's work in a variety of media. Certainly highly recommend. The architecture of the museum is itself worth seeing sitting on a hill overlooking Barcelona.
  • I have been a bit disappointed. The location and the building are spectacular, the views from the terrace very beautiful, but not so many works and a quite chaotic organisation. There are better museums and exhibitions for my taste.
  • sadly not fully open on the day I went (strike - didn't check website as I only had the one opportunity to go anyway). from what I could see, perfectly situated for panoramic views of the city!
