A Seriously big collection. The start of the museum is totally religious, the more you go up the more there is to see. But sometimes it's to much at once.

The museum is divided into two sections. One section is sculpture. The other is collections. We did not see the sculpture. This man was a consummate collector. There were all kinds of items where he accumulated hundreds of items. There was everything from early studio...More

Maybe we were lucky, not sure, but we have managed to pop in when there was no entry fee, which is always a nice surprise. I have never see such an huge art collection. I enjoyed the feminine items a lot.

I have never seen such sheer volume of art objects of one type lined up row after row for comparison and contrast. I am of two minds about this. As a lover of Medieval and Renaissance art, the museum offered a chance for me to...More

As other reviewers have said, this museum is a quiet little gem. Filled with statuary from Roman and medieval times, loads of religious icons and then, on the second floor, more collections than I have ever seen in my life. Old photographs, old stamps, eyeglasses,...More

I first visited many years before it was publicised on the BBC and hope it is not just visited as a trendy place to go. The collections are superb and to be lingered over and relished. Mares was a superb collector - although you might...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

€4.20 for adults. It doesn't vary on Saturday. If you have a Barcelona card it gives you entry with no additional cost.
