The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first principally with works from his own private collection, with a desire to set up an internationally recognised centre in Barcelona for Miró scholarship and contemporary art research, and to disseminate the collection. The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a dynamic centre in which Joan Miró's work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art. With an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organises temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st century artists as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research linked to the work of Miró and to contemporary art. The Fundació is located in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums anywhere in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them. The Fundació offers an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró's art and life, creating an enriching dialogue with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Joan Moro, fantastic, haven't enjoyed such a great exhibit in a long while. The cable car up was quite expensive and if your fit you can walk. Nice cafeteria although small. Interactive and totally absorbing work.

This museum is just the right size. 22 rooms, none are huge. The Miro works were wonderful to see . The other exhibits were unexpectedly super, too.

The exhibition was fabulous. Amazing to see so much of his work in one place and the building is also very interesting. Be wary of the coffee shop.....maybe wait to go somewhere that has staff a little willing to smile and serve you. The staff there had a bit of a feel as though they were there as punishment so...

I would add this Miro exhibition in the top must see things to do in Barcelona. Location was easy to get to with the funicular going up the mountain at no extra charge, part of the metro line. I was glad we added the audio guide. Loved the sculptures up on the roof as well as the view. Museum shop... More

What a luxury to be able to view these Miro works - paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and ceramics - in such an unhurried, contemplative space. The works are well organized, with informative labels, and the architecture of the museum is conducive to the display. There are even a few pieces of sculpture on the roof deck.

Modern, spacious and airy as it is on the hillside of Parc Montjuic. It's a small gallery by comparison to the massive collection at the Musea Nacional so very manageable in a short visit.

We arrived through the Greek garden below (150 steps to climb) and left towards the cable car on our left onwards to Montjuic castle. It was everything we thought it would be and none of the main pieces in the collection was missing. The building itself was white, simple with interesting architecture. Two shops, a little library and a cafe... More

Yes it's one of the greatest son's of Barcelona, but the Museum lacks of deepness and it's frankly boring.

This was a real treat since the architecture was terrific, and the work fabulous. There were many pieces that are not as well known and the view from the second floor terrace overlooks the city. Wonderful place and you can stop in the cafe for some time out. A lot to see. This museum as well the Picasso museum are... More

From a student group point of view.... although fabulous fun art, not very user friendly to groups. They have to stay with their teachers at all times, which is impractical. My group only stayed 20 mins as the museum guards kept nagging the teachers to keep their students together. Stressful for all!

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
