I've never seen such an extensive collections of pipes, ladies fans, scissors... you name it! Wasn't impressed much with the two "sculpture" floors, wish I would go straight up to "Collectors". A lot of interesting unusual objects, if you ever enjoyed going through someone's collection...More

I liked the visit, it is a good experience for me. I recommend that you find out more information to confirm if you would really like to see the pieces there. The collections is very interesting, and they are located in the last floors.

You have got to think... who collects all of this and so many of the same type of thing? Glasses, pipes, jesuses hanging from the cross, nude sculptures, pictures, ... don't come rushed.

The guide book indicated this museum has the largest collection of religious art but it has more than that and a lot of it. It is a nice window into the rich religiosity of the early days of the Spanish Empire.

€4.20 for adults. It doesn't vary on Saturday. If you have a Barcelona card it gives you entry with no additional cost.
