  • The building that houses the MNAC is stunning and worth getting up close and personal with. It’s an added bonus that there are escalators taking you up the hill to save tired feet!

  • From outside spectacular! The view around was like from a movie. Girls & boys take a nice clothes, you might take few romantic pictures there! 😉 Inside the museum - I enjoyed it, however I missed the descriptions next to the art works. The application wasn’t working so I couldn’t get to know more about art and artists. It was okay! Could be better. But it was nice to see what Catalan Art has to offer
  • Absolutely stunning museum!! Waking up to it there was a saxophone player creating an amazing vibe. The views are SPECTACULAR!!! We had so much fun before even getting into the building. Their exhibits were phenomenal, truly appreciated the efforts they put into sharing these amazing art pieces. The inside was a work of art in itself. Don't forget to look up, the ceilings were gorgeous. You'll need 2 days to see the whole thing, or get there early. The tickets also were a 2 day ticket, I wish we knew that before. DEFINITELY will be visiting again!! Get the GA ticket!
