Even if you are not interested in visiting inside the Art Museum you should visit this place. The views from out the front are amazing. You look over the magic fountains towards the Placa d' Espanya .

Probably not the most amazing collection of art in the world but it is interesting and the building is something else. Terraces provide a panoramic view of the city.

This museum was one of my favorite ones anywhere! I spent a few hours there, because not only the collection, but also the building were beautiful. Nice to combine with the castle which is higher on the hill.

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

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

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
