This art gallery has an excellent collection of religious artifacts from the 12 th and 13 th century. I was amazed by the brilliance of the colours on these ancient artifacts. The modern collection of paintings was also excellent. The building sits high on a...More

Art pieces are masterfully curated and well organized. Can spend the whole day here. There's a restaurant in the museum and also a small coffee shop outside.

In a lovely hilltop setting with great views, this magnificent building also offers some really good art. Beautiful Romanesque frescoes and I discovered the artist Cameras - very Klimt like.

Incredible museum at a fantastic location. From its terrace you can see the entire city; much better view than that from Par Guell. The collection of the works of Spanish artists I never heard of before is impressive. While perfectly willing to pay the entrance...More

I am not really much of an art passionate, so except the "modern" exhibition I didn't really enjoyed the rest. But from outside, the building looks stunning and you can get a nice view from the top ( where it is located ). Note: Entry...More

We started out looking at frescos, sculptures moved here from small rural mid-evil churches to prevent them from looting by art dealers. The museum has built structures to replicate the church interiors so frescos , sculptures and altars are displayed as they appeared in the...More

There were 4 periods displayed, Romanesque, Gothic, Rennaisance and Modern Art. We spent more than 3 hours seeing the Romanesque and Gothic. The building itself was impressive and being on an elevation offered a excellent view of the city. The displays of the Romanesque were...More

A very large venue full of fantastic art and history of Spain and Catalonia. Senior citizens get free admission, but paying for the ticket is worth every penny.

Worth a visit for the view, as well as the art and architecture. The fountain below is lit up at night and provides a great show that draws real crowds

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça
Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in
front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie
Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of
their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to

Hi I will be travelling from Salou to Barcelona for one night and on the first day I hope to see this museum and also the Picasso museum. Because the Picasso museum requires time slots I'm wondering how much time people typically spend at MNAC. Thankyou.

2 to 4 hours is needed to see the National Museum of Catalonya, it is packed full of interest. I found the Picasso museum disappointing - mainly early & poor quality works. If you have only one day in Barcelona, don't... More
My plan for Barcelona will be mostly getting around by public transport and walking, but I may consider driving to some more remote locations. Does the museum have public parking available? Mi plan para el Barcelona será mayormente moverse por el transporte público y caminar, pero podrá considerar como conducir a algunos lugares más remotos. ¿El museo tiene un aparcamiento público disponible? ¿Hay aparcamiento en la calle en la zona? Por favor, perdón por la traducción terribles Google. Gracias. El meu pla per al Barcelona serà majorment moure pel transport públic i caminar, però podrà considerar com conduir a alguns llocs més remots. El museu té un aparcament públic disponible? Hi ha aparcament al carrer a la zona? Si us plau, perdó per la traducció terribles Google. Gràcies.

this museum is not remote and public transportation works fine
Hi, Thanks for your review. Did you have to pay to go to the roof? If not, was it easy to explain that you just want to go up and not see the museum if you have limited Spanish? thank you.

You will have to pay 12 euro to enter the museum and another 2 euro to go up to the roof. I agree with others comments. The museum is worth seeing for a couple of hours and the terrace in front of the museum contains... More
