Modern art museums in Barcelona

Fundació Joan Miró

7.2/10

The Fundació Joan Miró, Centre d'Estudis d'Art Contemporani (Joan Miró Foundation) is a museum of modern art honoring Joan Miró and located on Montjuïc in Barcelona, Catalonia.

The building housing the museum is itself a notable example of modern design drawing from regional traditions. It was completed in 1975 by architect Josep Lluís Sert, who conceived it like an open space, with big terraces and interior courtyards that allowed a correct circulation of the visitors. The building was broadened in 1986 to add the library and the auditorium.

The Foundation has also a space named "Espai 13", dedicated especially to promote the work of young artists who experiment with the art. Also temporary exhibitions of works of other painters are carried out. Moreover, the foundation carries out itinerant exhibitions to introduce the work of the Spanish artist.

My favourite museum in Barcelona. It's quite small, but you can cruise through paying as little or as much attention as you like. Mercury fountain is mesmerizing, and the poetry room is really unique.

16 euros with the audioguide. Buy your ticket online if you don't want to wait in the queue. If you are really in love with Miro the whole tour takes at least 3 hours.

Absolute must for all surrealism lovers! Great opportunity to get to know Joan Miró’s works and life. Whole space is an architectural pearl and a cherry on top is a magnificent view of Barcelona.

Learned I’m not a Miró guy. Most of his art went over my head and not sure I understood his “language.” Nonetheless, loved the atmosphere and appreciated the moments when Miró’s sarcasm came through
