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 disseminate the collection. The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a dynamic centre in which Joan Miró's work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art. With an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organises temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st century artists as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research linked to the work of Miró and to contemporary art. The Fundació is located in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums anywhere in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them. The Fundació offers an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró's art and life, creating an enriching dialogue with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Tucked away in Monjuic's mountain sorrounded by its greenery lays this very modern museum by international and Catalan artist Joan Miro. A very contemporary building where most of his very well known work is displayed to the public. A wide range of his paintings sculptures...More

We ended up walking to this museum from our hotel - which was well worth the 40 minutes! The free museum tour in English was great (I think only on Thursdays) although we also did the audioguide since we arrived before the tour. Although there...More

If you want to learn and understand Miro visit his foundation. Get the earphones to listen to his life. Really interesting!

If you are into Joan Miro, then a visit to this building is well worth it. It chronicles how Miro came to be such an avant garde artist, but shows where he came from as well, and how he came to be the artist he...More

Rarely do you get a chance to see every style and period of an artist's work. The gallery was well curated with abundant explanations in English too. We loved it!

Not only does the museum provide an extensive collection on Mir but it provides the social/cultural/political context from which Miro's works were created. A lovely setting in the gardens and on a hill in Barcelona, the museum offers a respite from the city.

See his work in the flesh!! If you like twentieth century art, this is a must see. Miro's 2 to 5 meter-sized works need to be experienced up close. We spent four hours here. Much child-like exuberance.
