While not a bad place it can be boring unless you are really into musical instruments. I guess for me, while I like music I found the overall experience a bit boring and sped through it. Now I do not want to detract from it...More
Off the beaten path in Barcelona, this is definitely worth a visit if you have any interest in music. The instruments were beautiful and the setting was thoughtful. It's a great quiet place for a visit since it seems that not too many people know...More
We enjoyed this museum very much. It was nice, compact, interesting and well-presented. Our 9 year old enjoyed the room where one can touch instruments (classical guitar, electric guitar, cello, and some basic organ).
This is a very interesting and beautifully displayed museum. When we were there very few people were also there at that time so it was easy to see all of the displayed items. It's the perfect size and you can easily do the entire museum...More
This museum celebrating the musical tradition of Barcelona is slightly off the beaten track but well worth the visit. If you are staying centrally in the city you can take the Metro to Arc de Triomf and then walk (its approximately a 10-15 minutes walk)....More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
