Gaudi House Museum Barcelona: Top 5 highlights

The Gaudi House Museum was the home of the genius himself for two decades in his wonderland Park Güell of Barcelona, Spain. Today it showcases Antoni Gaudi’s unique sense of wonder in nature with his designed objects and furniture.

  • The Furniture

    1. The Furniture

    Like the natural world he was inspired by, nothing about Gaudi’s furniture is ridged or symmetrical. The modernist pieces look as if sculpted from soft clay and no two are alike.

  • Gaudi’s Work Desk

    2. Gaudi’s Work Desk

    It is strangely humbling to see where the genius himself drafted Sagrada Famila. You may just leave inspired for greatness at your desk!

  • The Death Mask

    3. The Death Mask

    Gaudi's assistant Matamala was instructed to make this molding of Gaudi upon his death. When the cast was pulled, his eyelid stuck to it as if he was winking at his friend.

  • Gaudi’s Bedroom

    4. Gaudi’s Bedroom

    It’s deeply humanizing to see where Gaudi laid his head to rest each night—little details left unchanged, like his prayer books, make visiting even more personal.

  • Parc Guell

    5. Parc Guell

    The house is located in one of his masterpieces, Park Guell. Entry is free, so it is usually quite crowded; come at a off-peak time to find a place to relax.

Planning Your Visit

  • Gaudi House Museum “worth it”?

    Many wonder if it's worth it to pay an entry fee to experience such a small museum. With a convenient location, after exploring the park it sits in all afternoon, this humble abode may seem a little underwhelming. At a 5,50€ entrance price, the museum is suited for the sentimentalist that wants a personal look into who the artist was and what his life looked like.

  • Be spontaneous

    Visiting Parc Guell is an absolute must for Barcelona, so you can be spontaneous about visiting the museum—tickets at the door won’t be a problem.

A good choice for a short visit of the city. The price for the 2-day variant is roughly the same as a metro ticket from/to the airport (separate ticket) and a 10-rides ticket for metro. Discounts for museums are a nice extra value, I would say. I don't know if the lady giving me the card (in the tourist info at the airport) made a mistake, but I only got a blue "transport card" which worked on public transport (incl. the airport metro) and then in the museums and other places they asked me to show them "the red card" (Express card) which I didn't get. In most places showing them the map which comes together with the Express card was enough to get the discount, but they said I was supposed to have "the red card". So make sure that you get all you are supposed to get when picking up the card(s)!

It was super easy to exchange the voucher for a ticket at the airport without having to struggle with ticket machines. The only down-side, I didn't get to explore the discounts that the card offered but there were really a lot of options!

2 day ticket was a must have ticket, while me and my two children were in Barcelona for a week and we had to check every possible attraction. So were all over Barcelona and really had possibility to check a lot of different places.

Very useful, recommend definitely especially with the free transportation (including airport tickets)& museum and food discounts!!

The card was useful, just took a bit to get to visitors centre in city to activate as didn't come via airport.
