The National Art Museum of Catalonia and its unique works

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 occupies the Palau Nacional de Montjuïc, at the foot of the hill of the same name. The famous law of Catalan museums ("llei dels museus Catalans") grouped the works of the former Museu de Art de Catalunya and the Museu Europeu d'Art Modern to create the National Art Museum of Catalonia. It covers almost 1,000 years of art in Catalonia, from the 10th to the 20thcentury. In addition to its permanent collections, the museum offers a wide and varied selection of temporary exhibitions. Alongside its very impressive works, the MNAC offers breathtaking panoramic views from the sumptuous heights of its terraces, making this museum one of the finest and largest in the country.
