The National Art Museum of Catalonia and its unique works

museum

With its permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, it is one of the most important museums in Barcelona.

The Museu Nacional d'Arte de Catalunya in Catalan (MNAC) is exclusively dedicated to the exhibition of Catalan art such as sculptures, paintings, drawings, and engravings.

Inaugurated in 1990, it is in the Palau Nacional de Montjuïc, at the foot of the hill of the same name. The famous law of Catalan museums, llei museus dels Catalans, grouped the works of the former Museu de Art de Catalunya and the Museu d'Art Modern to create the National Art Museum of Catalonia. In addition to its permanent exhibits, the museum offers a wide and varied selection of temporary exhibitions. Alongside its very impressive collections, it offers breath-taking panoramic views from the sumptuous heights of its terraces, making this museum one of the finest and largest in the country. It covers almost 1,000 years of art in Catalonia, from the tenth to the 20th century.

The MNAC is also the most beautiful Romanesque art museum in the world and one of the first for Gothic art.
