Full description

The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) is located in the Palau Nacional of Montjuïc, which was built for the International Exposition of 1929. During your visit to the museum you’ll have the opportunity to see the works of artists of Catalan Modernism, including Gaudí and Casas. Admire masterpieces by great European Renaissance and Baroque painters, such as Tiziano and Velázquez. See the museum’s collection of photography as well. The collections are displayed on 2 floors and you should plan on spending a couple of hours at the museum to ensure that you have time to see it all. In addition to exploring the collections, you’ll have a chance to learn about the history of the building. Afterward, you can head up to the rooftop, which is the perfect spot for enjoying panoramic views of the city. Temporary exhibitions: From 09/02/2023 to 07/05/2023 - Anglada Camarasa. The premeditated archive: Hermen Anglada Camarasa (Barcelona, 1871 - Port de Pollença, 1959) was an artist in a bohemian era, who managed and controlled his career with great devotion. This is demonstrated in his personal archive, donated to the Museu Nacional by his family and inventoried at the Museum’s Research and Knowledge Centre. The exhibition is an unprecedented opportunity to discover all the facets of his personality through archives created by the artist himself. The exhibition links the collection’s archives to a selection of his works, with a museography in which the space of the archive is recreated. In this exhibition, the public will also discover the relevance of his work and the creative process of Anglada Camarasa, the Catalan artist with the greatest international projection between the eras of Marià Fortuny and Joan Miró.

Beautiful palace! I bought my tickets online, right outside the door and that was very easy to use and do. Great activity for a rainy day - which it was. The cafe inside was pretty expensive, but that makes sense as it is a tourist attraction. Beautiful art exhibits and museums. I wish there was a little more education on the palace itself.

Great value for money and very easy to use! The museum was stunning. I recommend coming in the later afternoon (I booked in for 3pm) as the museum is much quieter at that time. I recommend starting on the first floor as it has more diverse and colourful bodies of work and then working your way down. The ground floor rooms are stunning, but kind of repetitive in theme and colour (which is normal of those eras, but if you know you get bored quickly or won’t last several hours, you can whizz through these towards the end of your visit). The museum is sat on a massive hill (HUNDREDS OF STEPS) so be ready for that. I arrived an hour early so I could enjoyed a glass of wine from the cafe and the incredible view. A talented guitarist was there playing Spanish music and it was a picture perfect moment. Give yourself time before or after your visit to do this if you can!

Stunning museum. View from it of the city is worth the price of going there. Beautiful artwork dating from ancient to 20th century brilliantly exhibited. Some exhibits only had labels in spanish and catalan that may be difficult for English speakers to grasp. Love cafe and fancy restaurant with a view.
