Must-See Museums in Barcelona

Must-See Museums in Barcelona

The Catalonian capital of Barcelona might be best-known for its moderniste architecture and sun-kissed beaches, but this city by the sea is also home to myriad museums, each offering a deeper look at a facet of local art, history, and culture. If you’d like to learn more about this region, here are some of the city’s must-see museums.

Picasso Museum (Museu Picasso)

Housed within five interconnected medieval mansions, the Picasso Museum collection chronicles the development of Barcelona’s famous native son from his formative years through his diverse periods. 

**How to Visit:**Join a small-group or private walking tour of El Born, Barcelona’s medieval district, to see Picasso’s favorite haunts.

FC Barcelona Museum

Football fans won’t want to miss a visit to this museum housed within Camp Nou Stadium, the largest stadium in Europe. The museum chronicles the team’s 120-year history through interactive audiovisual displays and a trophy gallery.

**How to Visit:**Enjoy the museum collection as part of a behind-the-scenes stadium tour, with access to the locker rooms, player tunnel, press room, and presidential box.

National Art Museum of Catalonia (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya)

Perched atop Montjuïc inside the neobaroque National Palace, this museum ranks among the largest in Catalonia, with a collection of some 260,000 works of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and baroque art.

**How to Visit:**Book your entrance ticket ahead of time to skip the line and enjoy more time inside browsing the art or soaking up the views from the rooftop terrace.

Joan Miró Museum (Fundació Joan Miró)

This gallery, itself an architectural masterpiece, showcases the works of Joan Miró, one of the city’s most important 20th-century artists.

**How to Visit:**Pick up a Barcelona Museum Pass for discounted entry to the Joan Miró Museum, as well as five other collections throughout the city.

Dalí Theatre-Museum

Salvador Dalí helped design this space to showcase his quirky and unusual surrealist works in the city of his birth in the Catalonian countryside. Housed in an old opera house, the Dalí Theatre-Museum is also the artist’s final resting place.

**How to Visit:**Take a day trip to Figueres to see the museum, combined with a visit to the medieval city of Girona.
