Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    So great that we went twice during our stay. The museum has an extraordinary collection of Catalan art from all centuries, so pick your era and explore. Plus some very good special expos. Set on a splendid site up Montjuic with views of the city. Free for Seniors.

    We love it! It worth every euro.
    It was the first Gaudi work after he finished his graduation and we can see how amazing he was. Advance for his time and his care to integrate the nature in his works . We can see the original plant of the house made and signed by Gaudi and much more. The audio guide his very good and all his experience was fantastic.

    After riding the teleferique, we enjoyed a long walk through the park to the museum. The hill is steep so plan to walk downhill. There is bus service. There are sites from the Olympics, plus museums.

    We have been twice, and the first time we loved it. This time the exhibit was different, and while it was worthwhile, it wasn't what it was last time. Will not return.

    This is apparently the world‘s largest collection of Miro’s work. It covers several floors so you should a lot at least two hours if you’re a Miro fan like us. The explanatory plaques are in Catalan, Spanish, and English, so one can practice one’s Spanish and attempt to pick up some Catalan, at least passively. Miro might be a fine introduction to Surrealism for children, since his oeuvre is less potentially scary than that of Dalí. There is a nice café with a courtyard and a gift shop with books, tchotchkes, and posters. The museum is located atop Mont Juic, so there is good access to other museums and pleasant walks.

    This is history museum which is in the gothic quarter area near the Cathedral of Barcelona.This museum is closed on Mondays.This is a hidden gem as the actual building is beautiful with so many corridors and exhibits every where.The best part is taking the lift to the basement to see the remains of the Roman wall and Roman remains of wine vasts,wash rooms,roads etc..You walk around and around for ages at the Roman section with so much to see.Its so fascinating and hard to imagine that there a Roman city in the heart of Barcelona.It costs around 5 euros to visit this museum too cheap,Well worth it.Recommend this museum,yes.

    First, I was very critical of the Caixa Forum in Barcelona, but when we arrived it convinced me to be a super decision!

    Great museum in a really nice location of Barcelona. We stumbled across this on our afternoon walk from our hop on hop off bus and with our discount from the tour bus it was only 4.80 euros per person. It has amazing displays in multiple languages and was accessible to all! It was surprisingly quiet which was very pleasant and there were so many different things to look at

    In a fabulous home that was a former major bank, a great collection of the famous and historical are here to be greeted.

    Realism of the personages is impressive. It was fun moving along seeing how many of the hundreds a name could be put to.

    Admirably dating from the early 1300s, it is a marvellous legacy in a tranquil area. Terrific Gothic is the hallmark, reflected in superb stone craft.

    A peaceful cloister is a highlight, complemented by the lovely church.

    I hope my family and friend write reviews of today's experience. Luis produced an excellent tour starting from the first Alien film, Aliens, 3, etc. His research as well as his mastery at building reproductions of weapons and many other devices used on the movie sets is incredible. Luis created a phenomenal museum. I won't give away any secrets to the films that Luis showed us, tricks of the trade if you will. And his knowledge and dedication to his craft are not found in many places. You'll have to see that and decide that for yourself. If you are in Barcelona, go see the Alien Museum Tour. You won't regret it.

    The price of €9 is a little steep considering that this museum is on the smaller side. The audioguide was fantastic and gave a lot of info that I would've missed out on. The museum covers the history of Marijuana and hemp from ancient times, the wars, to pop culture. There is a large collection of glass bongs some of which are nothing less than pieces of pure art. The section on the history of hemp was really fascinating, and even the section about the legality of marijuana was more information than lobbying. However, the exhibit on how marijuana affects the body was very lacking and spoke more about CBD oil than marijuana itself.
