La fondation Joan-Miró, initialement baptisée Centre d'études d'art contemporain de Barcelone, est une institution privée qui a pour principale activité la conservation et l'exposition d'œuvres de Joan Miró.
It was not all fun and games for Miro as you see from the works in this museum. Well lit and spacious with a broad array of his work, some deeply moving and some infuriating- this is a must see for anyone interested in visual arts. These may not be familiar from Art History 101, but you will expand the way you see around you as well as the way you think of Miro. 'The collection includes paintings, fiber art, sculpture, a tree, and architecture. It's easy to get to by bus or funicular. Go! Go!
A fairly small well done Miro Museum. If you're not a Miro fan, might not be worth your time if schedule is tight. If you like Miro, don't miss. 1/4 day is fine.
Very nice alternative to more famous artists such as Picasso or Gaudi for example. The museum is open everyday except Monday, Sundays rooftop is closed. There is a cafe and toilets if needed. Don't forget to visit the parce around. The museum is also a short hold from the palace and located within metres of green spaces, enough to escape the city for a day.
Amazing collection of Joan Miro's artwork. A true fan's dream. Here you can see his work in painting, sketches, ceramics, sculptures and more. Amazing collection.
The place is wonderful. And the surroundings are perfect for a walk. It is Miro that I have issues with but that's for another review.
The building in space for the Joan Miro collection is very interesting. Miro apparently designed to the space himself and donated many works of art to it. Other family and friends and collectors of Miro have donated or lent art to this Foundation. I personally prefer the early Miro and do not care as much for his later work. But I still enjoyed wandering in these rooms and seeing the physical layout of the space he created. If you were more interested in Modern Art and minimalism this is a great place to see his work.
Incredible collection of work by Mirò spanning across all mediums and forms. Came the day before the new exhibition opened but still enjoyed my time fully. Try to come here on a nice weather day — the terrace is gorgeous!
I loved this museum. It is in a very beautiful place. Not only the Miró's art is great but also the views of the city. There are very good temporary expositions that are worth coming back to the same museum even when you already visited it.
Interesting art aside, the building itself is crazy beautiful. We had a lot of fun just taking pictures on the rooftop, which has a great view as well. The café inside has pretty good food as well.
Interesting building and location to exhibit the art of Miró. Personally I am not a great fan of his art but I think it’s worth a visit. For great shame the audio guide is not available in Portuguese. Ticket and audio guide cost is 17 euros, which I found expensive for the content shown and when compared with other main museums in Paris, London or Amsterdam. Lastly, part if the exhibition is closed to the public since March due to a strike but still you pay for the full price entrance.
Loved it. Very comprehensive. Love seeing exhibits of just one artist so you really get an understanding of the artist.
Beautiful building built specifically for the art of Joan Miro. It is a bit pitty that the natural light had to be blocked from entering the exposition, but I understand the reason. The art itself is nice, in modern style. I personally liked the Mercury fountain and the tapistery made especially for this place by Miro.
Miro paintings are always a treat and seeing so many in one place was magical. The seeing is beautiful and easy to reach by bus from placa catalunya. Don't miss it when in Barcelona.
This is a small Miró collection but the temporary exhibits are worth the trip, and the temporary Japanese woodblock exhibit of Itō Shinsui was quite impressive. The exhibit featured many portraits but also a few landscape prints. A video display played a clip from the Tokyo Traditional Woodblock Print Association. Before leaving, be sure to hike up to the roof to see spectacular views of Barcelona.
An amazing setting for interesting art by Joan Miró. I’m still flabbergasted by the Calder mercury fountain. Look for the dots that diffuse and the temp exhibits. The sculptures on the roof are fascinating
The architecture of the museum is what I liked the most! Otherwise it's a little pricey (12€ for the whole thing) but you do get to see a lot of Miro's work! I did enjoy the visit, wasn't wowed by the temporary exhibitions though.
Love the collection, been here the second time. Recommend that you take the time to walk around the space and enjoy the sculptures. I got a scarve with a pattern of one of Miro's panting, not cheap but it's design based on a real piece of art instead of some expensive brand name :-)
A wonderful experience at a reasonable price. You can tell the exhibitions have been laid out with thought and there's plenty of space to look and take your time at each of the pieces. The cafe is reasonably priced also and the views across the city are amazing
Very nice museum. Obviously not the one showing the most famous Miró pieces of art but still enjoyable. Guided tour possible in different languages. Located in the area of Montjuic
Very nice building and display. However his work left a lot to be desired. We preferred Picasso
