The Picasso Museum is probably the most interesting museum that the Articket has to offer. Because with this Articket you can skip the queue and go directly to the special checkout for Artickets! This saves you a lot of waiting time. If you still want to buy the audio guide, you are welcome to tell the cash desk – the staff will be happy to show you to the audio guide cash desk (price: EUR 3).
The Picasso Museum shows you the early works of Picasso. Discover the realistic and highly developed painting style of the only 15-year-old Picasso as well as the “Blue Period” and his studies of Velázquez “Las Meninas”.
FUNDACIÓ JOAN MIRÓ
Regular admission: EUR 14 for adults, including the exhibition Skip the line!
Another important son of the city of Barcelona is Joan Miró. The Fundació Miró has most of the artist’s work in one place, and Miró himself has donated much to the house. So immerse yourself in his world: 217 paintings, 178 sculptures, 9 textile works, 4 ceramics and almost the entire graphic work of Miró (approx. 8000 works).
But you will also discover other artists: Alexander Calder’s mercury fountain, works by Antoni Tàpies or changing exhibitions by contemporary artists. Get the audio guide! Price: EUR 5
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya
Regular admission: EUR 12 for adults, including exhibitions No queue for you!
The MNAC is the most impressive museum in Barcelona. Perched on Montjuic, it is a huge palace and also has 1000 years of art to offer! The way up to the museum makes you seem small and insignificant, but once you are at the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent view, and you feel good!
The MNAC mainly shows Spanish/Catalan artists. The exhibition architecture is particularly interesting in the Romanesque part, and in the modern area you will also find the Picassos and Miros just presented. In the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection you can also discover international artists such as Tiepolo, Cranach and Rubens. The audio guide is recommended! Price: EUR 3
Museu d’Art Conemporania de Barcelona
Regular admission: EUR 11 for adults No queue for you!
The unusual building designed by the architect Richard Meier stands in the middle of the Raval. It is an exhibition house that regularly shows a wide variety of contemporary art exhibitions. Take a look at the MACBA entry on my website or the exhibition calendar to get an overview of the exhibitions.
Fondation Antoni Tápies
Regular admission: EUR 12 for adults
Antoni Tàpies is also an important son of the city of Barcelona, even if he is perhaps not as well known as Miró or Picasso, who joined him. Antoni Tàpies died in 2012 and left his foundation many works that are now presented in regular exhibitions. But international contemporary artists also find their place in exhibitions here. Maria Lassnig, Paul Klee, Jean Dubuffet and Jackson Pollock have already been exhibited.
Center de Cultura Contemporani Barcelona
Regular admission: EUR 6 for adults, including an exhibition
The Cultural Center, located near MACBA, is perhaps Articket’s least interesting museum. It really depends on the exhibitions that are going on at the moment. Because these can really be very good (like the annual World Press Photo), but others can sometimes be uninteresting for non-Spanish visitors. So please look again at my description of this cultural center or in the exhibition calendar!

Tip: Don’t pick it up at the Picasso Museum, there are extremely long queues here, which we want to bypass like a VIP. 🙂 I picked mine up at my test at MACBA. And then – whoops – I was in the Picasso Museum.

My Articket review
The Articket won’t only save you 50% on admission prices, you’ll also get preferred access to many museums. The Picasso Museum is especially interesting. The waiting line gets rather long during the summer months, and it may take you as long as 30 to 60 minutes to reach the cash register.
The ticket is also valid for 12 months. What does this mean for you? Should you be visiting Barcelona for a week, you could see one museum per day. This is different from the Barcelona Card, which is valid from the first day of use for three, four, or five days, so the Articket is much more relaxed. The Barcelona Card is also more expensive, and some museums don’t even participate, so it’s not as good of a deal as you might think.
