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

The building architecture is simple but commands your attention. The exhibits are top notch and the blog is worth the time to read.

There are recognizable orchestra instruments, instruments in chronological sequence, instruments from around the world and experimental modern instruments looking really weird. The glass cases let you see them from any angle (and take some great pictures), but...More

We always try to visit the local music museum in every city we visit and Barcelona was no different. We took the tram and got off at the stop for Auditori Teatre Nacional however the Marina & Glories metro stations are also nearby. For €5,...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
