Out of all the museums I've seen in this world, this one is by far the most beautiful both on exterior AND interior. I must have taken nearly 100 photos of the exterior facades, towers, and gardens alone. Furthermore, the artwork is quite extraordinary and very well laid out, chronologically lined up from Romanesque, to Gothic, to Baroque, and finally to Modern. All of the exhibits are simply splendid to behold, and in my opinion it is WELL WORTH visiting this museum if you happen to be visiting Barcelona for at least one day.

This is an absolute MUST see. Get there early. The quantity as well as quality of Catalunyan art is fabulous and deeply impactful. Hint: Your ticket includes a trip up to the roof terrace. May I suggest you do that first, before the lines to the small elevator are long. Great views if you do the full roof top tour and don't just take the first exit down again.

Not much value added to just buying tickets at the desk. You still have to go to the ticket taker, who then refers you to a secondary ticket taker, who then wanted us to write down our email to send the electronic vouncher to, slower than just paying cash at the window. The Museum, however, and environs, are very nice.
