Owner description: An art museum containing hundreds of pieces from the medieval age to the 19th century.
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The museum's location and its building are artwork in itself. The collection is good, and the way the interior of some of the old cathedrals was removed and reinstalled is amazing. It is challenging to a non-Catalan or non-Spanish speaker to follow the significance of each piece, as they are only labeled in these languages. I believe there is an audio guide available in other languages, but we did not take advantage of it.

I was on a hop&go bus tour because I wanted to go to Mount Juic. I didn't know about the MNAC and it was a nice discovery.

What I found different from other museum expositions is that there's a lot of gothic art. Also early christian art is gory and not censored.

The museum itself is spacious, easily accessible and the price entree is reasonable, compared to others.

Incredible museum with some great pieces that should not be missed! Renaissance, gothic, medieval and modern art, all housed in stunning surroundings. Well worth the visit. The coffee at the top of the steps outside was cheap, yummy and you have a great view too (: Also if you have a student card you get 30% off entry, always a winner.

This is a beautiful museum even from the outside. It's magnificent to see and at the start of Montjuic Park. There are many things to see in the park, but this museum is great. It's a very large museum and things are spread out nicely. You can go for free on Saturday's after 3:00 which we did not realize as we had purchased an Articket that got us in to 6 different art museums. If you like art, this is a great place to go. Very beautiful.

...from little churches scattered throughout the Pyranees. Good gothic collection too. If you like that kinda stuff, you're going to like this museum. Also the fountains are pretty cool and the building is interesting. The Miro ceramic tile mural and the painting (frescos?) inside the dome are pretty good too.
