“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

This museum is set high above Barcelona. When you enter at the front there are several sections of steps which take an effort even if you are in good shape. There also are escalators on the side of the steps for those who want. The building is beautiful and the art plentiful. We sat outside and had an ice cream and enjoyed the spectacular view. I recommend you do the same.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

A beautiful modern building set in amongst the ancient buildings of the University. Several exhibitions all divided into seperate rooms and clearly laid out.

Even if you are not an art lover you will appreciate the air conditioned building and the chill out area.

“Time killer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Very interesting collection of artefacts and art, available on the art ticket pass. The galleries take a while to get around but the works are beautiful and well arranged through different periods.

“Inspiring”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

The views when you reach here over the rat of the city are wonderful, but it is only when you enter the museum that the volume os art and historical objects come into being, from baroque to contemporary to romanesque, you could easily spend more than a day in this wonderful attraction
