When touring the local house museums the rooms are empty of furniture and accessories, the decorative arts, with only an occasional blurry photo of what was there when they were occupied. This museum has the furniture and objects that might have filled the empty rooms....More

The homes for the most part are bare of furniture. At this museum you will see the stuff that filled the Catalan Modernist homes. Beautiful work, numerous stained glass pieces too. We really enjoyed this place as it gave a whole different dimension to the...More

This is a small museum, but has some excellent modernist work, primarily by lesser-known artists. There are several striking stained glass works, sculptures, paintings, and furniture, as well as smaller decorative elements for furniture. For ten euros, as of November, 2015, it is rather expensive...More

This is a tiny museum and well worth a visit. It is located not far from Passeig de Gracia. In addition to some paintings and sculpture, the museum contains some wonderful home furnishings (chairs, hat racks, tables, etc.) from the Modernisme period, including some Gaudi...More

This museum is in a good location - not far from some landmark Modernisme buildings. The collection is very striking. Anyone who appreciates Art Nouveau should go to the museum. The best pieces are perhaps the furniture, but they are good representations of paintings, ceramics...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

If I remember correctly, they have English info. As for walking from casa Batlló, it's a five minute walk, down Passeig the Gràcia, to your right on carrer Consell de Cent and to your left on carrer Balmes. Enjoy!
