The Museum is well worth a visit to see all the beautiful works of art from all eras. The collection is quite easy to walk through and could be done in around 2 hours altogether. Lots of the original pieces have been taken directly from...More
This is a wonderful museum with a great collection. The lighting and general presentation is also excellent. Hugely impressed that it was free of charge for seniors too.
I am, however, still in two minds about the extraordinary Romanesque collection. Whilst I feel certain that...More
This is a marvellous building over-looking Barcelona, so it's worth going up there just for the view. The main fountain has a son et lumiere in the evening which is also definitely worth a look. Ticket price is not too excessive but later afternoon Saturday...More
This eclectic collection of medieval, renaissance, Catalonian art during the period of Franco and Byzantine frescos is truly excellently displayed and annotated. It was a revelation to us since we knew very little about the museum prior to our visit.
I love this museum. If you want to know Catalonia and it's cultural background as well as it's modern character, you should definitely go there. I have visited it several times. Normally you'll need an hour or two, depends on your style of visiting. Besides...More
The collection of artwork spanned from Gothic all the way to modern artwork. The paintings taken from churches in the Pyrenees were incredible to witness. Some of the romanesque paintings were more intense than any I'd seen before, but I enjoyed them thoroughly.
It was the first Sunday of November so we got in free. Hurray! Huge place so in spite of the crowds, it did not feel congested. Managed to pick out 2-3 key Picasso’s including the iconic “Woman in Hat and Fur Collar”.
Loved the curation...More

Funny you ask, my friend and I discovered the museum by going up a completely different way then the stairs in front of the fountains. There is a back access that has escalators that take you all the way up to the museum and we went down the stairs when we were leaving.
So if you are facing the fountains you take a left and walk down and then a right, something like that. I think there might still be some stairs that you might need to take to get to the escalators but they aren’t as many!
Hope that helps :)
