Think stained glass and fluently designed furniture from a century ago. Nice display. Relatively small, concise museum.

As others have mentioned it contains a relatively small collection of works, mainly furniture, sculpture and paintings. There are no ceramics, glass works apart from panels of stained glass, metal work or jewellery. It is on two floors but the artifacts are well displayed despite...More

Too expensive for such a modest collection. Just 20 minutes would be enough for this place. Some paintings, furniture, sculptures. If you have free money, come there. But if you are tight on budget, better skip this place

The Museu del Modernisme Catala is a rather small museum located in a side street off Passeig de Gracia, more or less just around the corner from Casa Battlò. I found this museum to be very interesting, as I am a lot into modernisme art....More

Situated in the area of Barcelona where much of the architecture of the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) period is located, it is a perfect complement to a stroll through that place and time. It was not something we knew about in advance, but after walking past...More

A small museum, very manageable, where you get a good overview of Catalan Art Nouveau, specially painting and interior design. There are some sculptures as well.

Thank ITQ
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

If I remember correctly, they have English info. As for walking from casa Batlló, it's a five minute walk, down Passeig the Gràcia, to your right on carrer Consell de Cent and to your left on carrer Balmes. Enjoy!
