  • It was a free entry day and this is why I came here and I loved it! Beautiful art to observe and the service was nice. And you definitely have to see the patio. It's wonderful for photo shoots and for walking breaks.
  • Very, very nice museum free to visit. They have sculptures, paintings, weapons, swords you name it. It's a smallet version of Prado from Madrid. I highly recommend it. Expect about an hour to visit.
  • Museum with a great concept of mixing old and new arts, like putting side by side a 14th century painting with a modern sculpture. Besides that, it's really focused on christian sacred art. If that's your thing, this museum is for you
  • An incredible collection! I am fascinated, overwhelmed! An amazing, rich place! I wandered around in amazement! Definitely not a place for a few hours or a day; can visit for days and weeks. I want to look carefully each track and consider, examine individually. For sure I will come to Barcelona again so that I can come to this museum once again. The staff are very hospitable, friendly and helpful. Thanks so much. I am very impressed.
  • Amazing collection of beautiful objects including religious sculptures, fans, pottery, metalwork and textiles. The cool, quiet interior of the museum was a welcome and peaceful break from the busy streets outside. There are such a variety of items on display and the old display cabinets themselves are lovely, I found myself intrigued by items I didn't even think I would be interested in. I just wish there had been a bit more interpretation in the upper floors so I knew what some of the more obscure things were or when pieces dated from.
