  • We didn't take an audio guide and there were no other english explanations.. Except of that its a big museum with tons of stuff and you can easily spend there like hour and a half 
  • Much like the Catalans say that Spain steals them, the seas Mr treasured hundreds of Andalusian, Castilian and Aragonese churches thousands of Saints, Virgin, altars and what was caught. The victoria and Albert is a joke next to this (beautiful on the other hand) Museum which must give kick to those who come to Barcelona and see the Saint or Virgin of his people hung there. Often looting were mounted on account of such the seas, which was a very famous sculptor and pasta that I had to have because not content with having average castilla of Christs moth-eaten Gothic bundled to save Holy cards, boxes of matches, pipes, fans, pots anyway... as Museum is super, but it's a spoliation.

  • This is now my favourite museum! Full of wonderful and interesting items I spent hours going through the place. And I can use my ticket again for free in the next 6 months! Makes me want to go back and see it all over again. Everything is so beautifully laid out and the sculptures are really given the right sense of space that they each deserve. The only thing I found negative was the fact that the staff working the different floors seemed to follow me around (as a woman on my own I found this particularly unsettling) and I was told about 5/6 times to not use flash on my camera, even though I hadn't once. The staff at the entrance were lovely, just the staff in the galleries that were a bit intimidating.
  • Very interesting. Collection is quite enormous! You have to visit the bottom level and see the artifacts there. Price is great! Well-worth your visit!
  • Full of sculptures of different eras. Can be a bit repetitive at the end for a non-initiated. Free from 15pm every sunday!
  • One man's collection of vernacular and decorative art. It's housed in a late medieval building, easy to find (the cathedral is next door) and seldom crowded. When you are done, you could try some wine in the courtyard café before continuing down Carrer dels Comtes as it turns into Carrer de la Frenaria, Carrer de la Dagueria, Carrer Lledó, Baixada de Viladecols. When you can go no further because you have come to a T-junction, turn left and continue (across the broad Via Laietana) until you come to the Santa Maria del Mar basilica, the city's loveliest church.
  • If you like sculpture then this will be great for you. If you don't then don't bother. Nicely laid out museum but it has nothing but sculptures.
