The Fundació Joan Miró was created by Miró himself, at first principally with works from his own private collection, with a desire to set up an internationally recognised centre in Barcelona for Miró scholarship and contemporary art research, and to disseminate the collection. The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a dynamic centre in which Joan Miró's work coexists with cutting-edge contemporary art. With an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organises temporary exhibitions of 20th and 21st century artists as well as academic activities and projects in collaboration with other institutions and organisations. Through its exhibition and educational programmes, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research linked to the work of Miró and to contemporary art. The Fundació is located in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums anywhere in the world in which the complicity between artist and architect underpins the dialogue between the works and the space that houses them. The Fundació offers an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró's art and life, creating an enriching dialogue with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Small-ish museum filled with Joan Miró paintings. The small restaurant has a great atmosphere, the two boutiques offer us lots of different art-connected stuff as well as art books. As a Miró fan, i think anybody should at least take some time to observe his paintings. The museum is situated at the top of Mont Montjuïc, thus giving us a... More

It is a little away from the down center. Worth visiting if you have time time. Nicely curated and not as crowded as the Picasso museum making the visit really pleasant. Don't forget to say hi to the sculpture in front of the museum.

The Miro gallery is easy to get to via the hop-on hop-off tourist bus which stops outside. It is no as crowded as, for example, the Picasso museum is and therefore it is easy to stop and fully appreciate each work of art. Knowing little about Miro before this visit, I came away knowledgeable and more appreciative of his surrealist... More

For who doesn't know Miro, the fundacio is perfect. And I am one of these. Whether you will like his work or not, is another matter ! Careful with children as the connotations are fairly obvious.

Not as crowded as i thought it would be, and a thourough representation of the achievements of one a Spains finest artists. The museum itself is of great archtectual value of itself. Go see for yourself. Take the underround and mountainrailway for an extra treat. Metrostation Parral-lel

Interesting art collection in a nice building. People can take pictures inside. First time i went to this place it was 20 yrs ago. I revisited it last month and enjoyed it again. Maybe because i like Miro's work..

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
