Frederic Mares Museum, Barcelona Reviews
An amazing collection. In all the years I have visited Barcelona I have never been here. Wish I had as it’s incredible the amount of things collected. You need to visit many times to see it all. We went on a Sunday afternoon and just didn’t have enough time. The beautiful religious sculptures are only the start. You don’t need to be religious to appreciate the skill involved. I am still amazed by what I saw. And then you go up to the collections. Everything you can think of. This has got to be the best collection in the world. So much history. So much art craft and design.
The reason why it isn’t 5 stars is because I don’t fancy sculptures that much. BUT they have diverse collections that comprehensively reflect Catalonian history and heritage, apart from the extensive medieval collection on the first floor. Staff were helpful and friendly, and prices were so reasonable. Highly recommend the audio guide too.
Nice museum that is worth the admissions price (under €3 for those under 29 years old). Medieval works of art mainly involving wood, stone, and Christian themes.
A very varied collection of sculptures and objects ! Quite impressive, I really liked it. Not so much all the religious and crucified sculptures but that's about a quarter of all of it. Definitely worth the visit.
Weird how many things a person can collect. Want to know how many? Visit this.
