Overview
More
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.

If you know Miro then go. If you do not know Miro but are curious about abstract art, then take the audio tour. Not a must-do but good for some artistic intellectual stimulus.

The museum is located in a lovely building on the mountain just on the edge of Barcelona. It has a very interesting collection of work by Joan Miro. If you are interested in this artist, don't miss coming here. Seeing these works also provides an...More

Miro is an artist who broke all the rules and developed a style uniquely his. The museum is so all consuming that often one tires in the middle but the way to visit is with a museum guide headset. Often to get the most of...More

Unusual art in an unusual building. Miro is not always easy to look at but some works, especially the big tapestry and the Mercury fountain are quite stunning. Be prepared to be open minded.

I did not know much about Joan Miro before visiting this well laid out wonderfully curated museum. I left with a passion for his work and life. Because the museum was created during his lifetime, Miro had a major hand in the curating and the...More

Miro is one of my favorite artists. And having read about him-I just had to visit his museum. A short hike from El Born where I stayed-I loved the scenery en route. Montjuic. El Poble Sec. Miro's connection to his land; his interest in Zen...More

I'm not a Miro fan but the museum is nice and enjoyable to walk though. The building is nice and the displays. Nice gift shop at the end.
