Best art museums in Barcelona

Fundació Joan Miró



Created by Miró himself, Fundació Joan Miró offers an incredible overview of Miró’s art throughout his life. We loved the incredible building, that took us on a long art walk inside and outside.
The museum has an very useful audioguide, it’s not free, but totally worth it. It has explanations to many paintings, as well as several walk and supplemental information you will only find out if you play with the audio guide around.
