Museu Nacional D'art De Catalunya, Barcelona Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the nicest art galleries I have visited. It took me almost 3 hrs to go around the place and see each of the works they have. entire place is separated into few sections. The one on Renaissance contains a lot of exhibits and information on works done in Catalonia itself and how they developed over time. By not trying to cover entire epoch and concentrating on art in this Spanish region makes entire presentation quite interesting.The section on modern art doesn't separate paintings, photos and other art form from each other - but displays them together when showing appropriate periods. It is done to explain how they influenced each other developed over time, which makes for another great experience when you walking around. Also at front entrance you get great panorama view on Barcelona itself. For the price you pay it is probably one of the best places to visit while you are in Barcelona.

  • It's good but compared to all the museums and galleries that I have been to it's just good. It will help you to get a grasp of Spanish art a bit more. Particularly I loved the views and parks near the place.

  • Art Museum in a palace with roof access. Has local art from different ages and with different focuses. Thus probably best for children or people who aren’t that much into art, as it provides a very decent overview over different eras and influences. Also perfectly structured with just one path to follow.

  • An impressive museum, both from the outside and the inside. It is just amazing to admire the museum and the Magic Fountain together. Apart from the great pieces of art it features, the museum is also a great concert venue, so I would definitely check "what's on".

  • It can take several hours to go through the massive collections here. I suggest you start with your preferred era - medieval, Gothic or Modern and be prepared to skip the rest. Besides the permanent collections they also feature a rotating exhibition in the lower level. Admission is free on Saturday afternoons after 3 and first Sunday of every month. Remember to look up as the ceiling is quite spectacular.
