  • The outside and inside are both worth visiting. Althought the collection is not large, they are lovely, beautiful and impressive.

  • This Art museum is huge! It took me almost four hours to do half of it. I visited the Medieval - Romanesque collection, the Medieval - Gothic collection, and the Renaissance and Baroque collection...

  • From outside spectacular! The view around was like from a movie. Girls & boys take a nice clothes, you might take few romantic pictures there! 😉 Inside the museum - I enjoyed it, however I missed the descriptions next to the art works. The application wasn’t working so I couldn’t get to know more about art and artists. It was okay! Could be better. But it was nice to see what Catalan Art has to offer
  • Absolutely stunning museum!! Waking up to it there was a saxophone player creating an amazing vibe. The views are SPECTACULAR!!! We had so much fun before even getting into the building. Their exhibits were phenomenal, truly appreciated the efforts they put into sharing these amazing art pieces. The inside was a work of art in itself. Don't forget to look up, the ceilings were gorgeous. You'll need 2 days to see the whole thing, or get there early. The tickets also were a 2 day ticket, I wish we knew that before. DEFINITELY will be visiting again!! Get the GA ticket!
  • Lovely museum, beautiful paintings, sculpture, furniture and photography. Well laid out, clear path to follow. Roof access, restaurant and outdoor cafe. Nice gift shop with an array of options. Was included with city card. In the same area as other museums and sites so well worth the trip from the gothic/Rambles area. Easy subway, outdoor escalators help the hike for sure.
  • Went on a Saturday after 3 pm when it was free. Waited about 1 hour to get in, which I did expect a bit of a wait. There was a very long line to get into the romantic art section of the museum so I never got to see it. This museum was huge!! You could spend quite a bit of time in there. Worth checking out.
  • Very nice museum, on two levels - on the ground floor, there’s older art from three different periods and on the first floor, there’s modern art. Our visit was very nice, up until the point when we were literally kicked out by a employee because there were 15 minutes left until closing time. We were waiting for a friend downstairs and she kept raising her tone to get us to move from the hallway. Very rude and definitely casted a shadow on an otherwise pleasant visit.
