We have been a little surprised by some of the reviews of this 'museum', in so far as comments about the size of it, or the price of entrance. Without getting too pedantic about the definition of its title, perhaps you could call it an...More

This was an interesting museum but very small and expensive for what you get; only for those who are really keen on art of the period.

This museum simply doesn't have enough space, or an extensive-enough collection, to adequately cover Art Nouveau or as it is called here, the Modernista style, even for just Catalunya. There are some lovely pieces of furniture, a few uninspired stained-glass windows, some sculpture from the...More

The main floor was the only one open when we visited - so they cut the price by nearly a half. We were able to look at various pieces of furniture, etc. Many were done by Gaudi. We thought it was interesting. Info is available...More

This museum has a surprisingly comprehensive colleciton considering its modest size. You'll find furniture, sculptures, woodwork, glass work as well as a fascinating collection of paintings here. For me, the paintings in the basement were the highlights of my visit. There were very few other...More

Very pleasantly surprised by this museum with Modernist paintings, sculptures and furniture. Limited collection on 2 small floors, but definitely still worth a visit. There truly is some beautiful art to see here. Try to get a discount voucher somewhere though, because the entrance fee...More

Well worth a visit if you like art nouveau, you will ooh and aah with wonder and envy at the furniture and wish you could go back in time (but only if you were rich and could afford said furniture). Not a huge museum so...More

When touring the local house museums the rooms are empty of furniture and accessories, the decorative arts, with only an occasional blurry photo of what was there when they were occupied. This museum has the furniture and objects that might have filled the empty rooms....More

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!
