The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first principally with works from his own private collection, with a desire to set up an internationally recognised centre in Barcelona for Miró scholarship and contemporary art research, and to...more

If you like modern art this is a cannot miss. Since Miro is my favorite artist I was awed by some of the art works there. The view from the patio of the museum looking out to Montjuic was breathtaking and visitors can sit in...More
I really like contemporary museums and Joan Miro museum is definitely a gem! The house itself is so amazing - a masterpiece on its own! And the set up of Joan Miro works is well thought through and really enjoyable! So the combination of the...More
We found it a lovely visit, beautiful laid out and relaxing. We probably did not appreciate his art (which at times left us a little dumbfounded) to thoroughly appreciate it. I think you have to be a real fan to thoroughly enjoy it.
One of the most beautiful museum we ever visited. Location, museum architecture, exhibits, multi-media guide, all together made this visit an exceptional event. All elements combined provide a great overview of Miro's work as well as his contemporaries.
I'm somewhat galleried out these days so it takes something special to turn me on. We spend over two hours at this spacious and airy gallery leaving with a feeling of great lightness.
Miro's work from start to finish is displayed – his ceramics and...More
This museum has more art by Miro than anywhere else in the world. It was very interesting to watch Miro's progression as an artist. The art is very contemporary and if you don't like modern art, you won't really enjoy it.
There were several paintings...More
My friend Barbara and I went to this museum early in the day. If you're 65 or older you can ask for a senior discount (worth about 3 euros).
Museums can be overwhelming. There's a lot to see and take in. This museum, besides having...More
Nicely laid out museum on a hill overlooking Barcelona. This contains a good collection of Miro paintings, sculptures and tapestries. Be sure to allow time to sit in one of the sunlounges on the deck overlooking Barcelona enjoying views all the way to the Mediterranean...More
This museum is so outstanding it’s surprising that more visitors don’t end up here. A fantastic display of not just paintings but also sculptures in a building that looks like Miro himself designed it. With rooftop sculptures offering fabulous views. Not to be missed
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
Take the 55 bus from Placa de Catalunya and it will let you off in front of the Museum... and take the bus home from a few feet away. You can take the Metro, but you have a walk up a substantial 'hill' to get to the museum... More

If you want to explore the Poble Sec neighborhood (and there are some really good eats there) take the bus to the Museum, then walk down through the park when you're finished and you're in the heart of the neighborhood. Then you can take the Metro home.
