Owner description: An art museum containing hundreds of pieces from the medieval age to the 19th century.
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The outside of the museum is stunning. Its lovely to walk up to the museum from Espanya metro station as you get the full view of the whole building and the magic fountain. There are escalators so you dont have to walk up all of the many steps and once you get to the top the view over Barcelona is gorgeous. The entrance to the museum itself is €12 which i think would be worth the price normally but when i visited i was disappointed to find that a large portion of it was closed to the public. So i would recommend checking online before you visit to avoid disappointment.

It is an amazing Museum, besides you can have a great sight from the top of Plaza España.
We could not have Access to the 19th and 20th century expositions. It was closed for the public. It is recommended to check on line or give them a call prior to your visit, to be sure if all the expositions are available to visit.

The museum exhibits a wonderful collection of works, sculptures, bronzes and paintings of many famous artists who have left their artistic expressions in Barcelona during their stay in Cataluna. Many artists are represented in this museum: my favourite: Tintoretto.
The museum is worth a visit also for its beautiful architecture. It has a large indoor arena. The arena is dominated by a historic organ that is still working perfectly. The view from the terrace is amazing. Entrance 12 €. Free with the Barcelona Card.

While it may not be The Louvre or the Sistine Chapel, the MNAC still holds some incredible artwork. Especially if you're at Montjuic anyway, it is definitely worth checking out (it's housed in the Palacio Nacional)

My girlfriend and I took the cable car upto Montjuic and walked around and it was the most amazing way to get there. Staggering views, lovely walks and when you reach the museum it just blew us away!! The best way to describe its unveiling to the eye is if you start at the top and work your way down is like opening a present.... the more you peel the different perspectives you get then when at the the bottom the present is completely unwrapped! Just breathtaking!!
