Museu del Modernisme de Barcelona, Barcelona

(4.1/5 based on 170 reviews on the web)
Two floors of art await at Museu del Modernisme de Barcelona, where you can find items by the likes of Antoni Gaudi, Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusinol, and Eusebi Arnau. The museum building itself remains a major example of Modernist architecture, its ground floor designed a bit like a furniture showroom. There, you'll discover the Gaudi exhibit, with several pieces from building designed by the master himself. Other displays include works by Gaudi's less known but equally talented contemporaries, including a few pieces by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. Don't miss the basement, which features mosaic-covered pillars and columns displaying Modernist paintings and statues.

  • a museum little promoted by the centers of tourism... and this is a hidden gem.

There are discoveries to be... just a bit expensive for the exhibition area, we...

  • Excellent small museum celebrating Barcelona's golden age of art deco and art nouveau. We got an inclusive ticket with the Barcelona card and enjoyed an intense visit of about an hour - but you could easily spend less and feel satisfied. A beautifully curated space with pieces immediately in front of you - the Gaudi furniture here looked a lot better than in the giant rooms at the National.
  • I don't know much about art but it was pretty, and you can tell others you went here :)
  • Beautiful collection of Catalan Art Nouveau. Strong French influence is evident in much of the work - and this pleased me greatly - but it also tends to possess a palpable Catalan character, which comes off as slightly exotic and new. Excellent examples of Gaudi, Casas, Claraso, and many others. Downstairs is very tranquil. Highly recommended.
  • Great little museum with some Gaudi's creations, art and a wonderful collection of old photos of Barcelona. Entrance is 10 euros.
  • Very interesting
