Gaudí House Museum (Casa Museu Gaudí) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Gaudí House Museum (Casa Museu Gaudí) was the home of architect Antoni Gaudí for the last 20 years of his life. It was opened to the public as a museum in 1952 to celebrate the centennial of his birth year. The artist designed pieces of furniture that fill the house, and walls are covered with his drawings and other original artwork.
Exhibits within the intimate museum tell the story of the architect’s private and religious life through his original furnishings and personal effects. The Gaudí House Museum sits within the free access area of Park Güell but requires its own admission ticket, which includes an assigned entrance time. Entrance to the house can be combined with skip-the-line access to the Park Güell monumental area on a guided walking tour of the area.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Gaudí House Museum is a must-visit for architecture buffs and art lovers.
- Tripods and selfie sticks are not allowed within the house or garden.
- The ground floor and garden are both wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
The easiest way to get to the Gaudí House Museum is to take the Barcelona Metro (Line 3) to Lesseps station and follow the signs to Park Güell. Several public buses also stop near the Carrer d’Olot and Carretera del Carmel entrances.
When to Get There
The museum is open daily throughout the year (including holidays) though hours are limited during the low season from October to March. If you’re visiting during the summer months, plan to arrive first thing in the morning to beat the queues.
Catalan industrialist Eusebi Güell i Bacigalupi envisioned Park Güell as a private residential development, and he hired Antoni Gaudí to design it. The plan included houses, as well as a public square, market, and chapel. Construction began in 1900, but only two of the 60 planned houses were built.
Address: Parc Güell, Carrer d'Olot 7, Zona Alta, Barcelona, Spain
