This is an easy extension to a trip the castle fort and houses some great exhibitions. We also added a great lunchtime dining experience in the roof restaurant with magnificent views over the city. Accessible via the Funicular railway from downtown Barcelona.

One of the best museums ever. Make sure to have at least 2 hours and a half to check everything. The view from the museum is super nice

Free access offered to the over 65s make this a gem. Plenty to see and plenty of space to view the exhibits. A wide range of food options enhance the experience.

Another good museum in Barcelona. The ticket can be used on two days so nice to pop in and then go back for another look. Compact and not one where you feel you have to be there all day. There is a mixture of stuff there in that it is not all paintings for example. Some interesting pieces recovered from... More

Didn't go inside but the walk up to and around the fountains was impressive along with the view from the top. Not in the centre of the city so not as many crowds. Worth the visit

The building alone is worth visiting no mind viewing the art which is amazing and unique. I enjoyed my visit and would return as some of the exhibitions are temporary. Food in the restaurant is very expensive but tasty!

The first half hour was interesting but once you have seen one wall painting, religious statue etc, many of them are very similar. The view from the entrance is excellent though.

We took a trip here one evening - we had the most helpful taxi driver, told him we wanted to go to the fountain and he dropped us here and said its better to walk down than up (how very true). Lots and lots of steps!!!

Huge art museum set in large parkland; also go and see the adjacent Mies van der Rohe 'Barcelona Pavilion', a world class 1920s modernist building. Note the main museum closes at 3pm on Sundays.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
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 this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
