“Some Amazing collection and some ehh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

The building itself is worth seeing and it's a easy walk from the subway. Once you get up there is also a great view of the city. I didn't like all the collections especially the Roman art and there wasn't English descriptions on all the work so that was really disappointing.

“A gem of a museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

No trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit to MNAC. The Romanesque art collection is world-class. We set aside an hour to walk the beautifully manicured grounds and enjoyed the fountains.

“Astonishing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

In my opinion, after Sagrada familia is the second best building in Barcelona. Sadly, I was there on a Monday, so it was close and no water show either. But still I enjoy it. Just disconnect for 10 minutes from everything and enjoy the sunset!

“Not into religious art”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Much of the work was Christian historical which my husband and & have no appreciation for, especially many paintings showing vulgar torture scenes. The building inside is modern & spacious.

Great collection of art and the building itself is incredibly impressive. The walk up to it in itself is excellent. Must see attraction for anyone visiting Barcelona.
