The guide book indicated this museum has the largest collection of religious art but it has more than that and a lot of it. It is a nice window into the rich religiosity of the early days of the Spanish Empire.

Saw this on the BBC before our visit...hence the trip What a gem (in gothic quarter near Cathedral) Cost us Euro4 and spent 2 hours inside looking at the collection of history...could have spent more time Would definitely go back...the study/library alone is amazing

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.

We had the luck of being able to go on the first Sunday in the month which means that certain museums are free of charge. But I would have quite happily paid 4.20 euros as this was a very interesting museum. The collection is varied....More

We visited in peak season and had the first three floors all to ourselves while roving hordes of tour groups filled the streets (and got drenched in a downpour). This museum is life's work of a mind bogglingly obsessive collector (and talented sculptor). It is...More

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