Barcelona museums

If you are passionate about art and architecture, then prepare yourself for a delightful time in Barcelona!

Barcelona prides itself for its excellent collection of museums, and they are great indeed! Some are free, such as the CaixaForum or the Metronom. Others charge admission, and the queues are always long… If you are a real art fan then getting a Museum Card is a good idea as it will save you a lot of money and precious time. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the Picasso Museum, one of the city’s finest museums. Barcelona has a few museums specialized in modern art, museums about the city’s or the region’s history, football museums and so on.

The best museums in Barcelona

You have probably heard of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, about who some say he was a genius, and some say he was crazy. Either way, he was responsible for the creation of many great works of art that are displayed all over the world. You could see some of his works in various Barcelona museums, but you could also take a day tour to Figueres, his hometown and visit the Dalí museum there. Our PDF guide will tell you more about it.

Barcelona is covered with eye candies, by some of the world’s most famous artists. Gaudí’s La Sagrada Familia or Park Güell are just a few of them. We strongly suggest that you book a guided tour with a small group to discover Barcelona’s architectural treasures. Not only will you skip the long waiting lines that way, but also the experience will surely be more enriching! Ask your guide to include the remarkable Palau de la Musica and don’t forget the modern architecture the city has to offer!

Next let’s talk about art galleries. The best place to get a glimpse of young, up-coming artists is in the Gothic Quarter, where many of the contemporary galleries exhibit new and local talent.
