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

National Art Museum of Catalonia (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya)
Housed in the neo-baroque National Palace (Palau Nacional), the National Art Museum of Catalonia (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya) occupies a spectacular location, atop a hill in Montjüic. Inside is one of Catalonia’s largest museum collections: 260,000 works of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and baroque art.
 
The Basics
The majestic palace of the National Art Museum of Catalonia towers over Barcelona from its perch above Plaça Espanya and the Montjüic Fountain. The building is an attraction in its own right and many sightseeing tours of the city stop there. Visitors can choose between a single admission ticket to the museum or a museum pass that grants skip-the-line entry to six Barcelona museums, including the Picasso Museum and Joan Miró Foundation.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is a must-see for art lovers and architecture buffs.
  • Book your entrance ticket ahead of time to skip the line at the ticket office and spend more time enjoying the collection.
  • Most of the museum spaces are wheelchair-accessible, and wheelchairs are available to rent from the cloakroom.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available on both floors of the museum.
 
How to Get There
There are several ways to get to the hilltop museum. Ride the funicular from Parallel metro station, or take the Barcelona metro to Plaça Espanya (Line 1 or 3) and walk up the hill to the museum entrance. The Barcelona hop-on hop-off bus stops at the museum as well.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday year-round, though hours vary from season to season. Admission is free on the first Sunday of each month, when the museum can get rather crowded. Plan to visit first thing in the morning on a weekday for the best experience.
 
Famous Landmarks in La Ribera
The extensive museum collection can be overwhelming, so it’s a good idea to pick out a few highlights you’d like to see before you arrive. Visitor favorites often include the collection of Modernista design pieces by Antoni Gaudí, Zurbarán’s Immaculate Conception, and works by Velázquez, Goya, El Greco, and Rubens.
