For a more enjoyable experience in Barcelona, we recommend you a visit to the MNAC: Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia). There, you will discover works of art of the most representative Catalan artists, but also some collections of international performers and several temporary exhibitions. The museum is located in the Montjuïc hill, just like our hotel, and you'll find it near Plaça Espanya and the famous Magic Fountain of Montjuïc too. Since 1934, the MNAC is located in the Palau Nacional of Montjuïc. This palace was built because of the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition (an electrical industries' exhibition). The museum opened its doors with a great fund of medieval art, however, over the years it has been adding other important collections of Romanesque and Gothic art. Furthermore, since September 2014 has also been known as the reference museum of modernism and the Civil War for many reasons: it has greatly increased the number of artistic pieces of the 19th and 20th centuries; it has been improved and redistributed its historical art route, and it has joined the Film and Photography History. Therefore, some of the upcoming exhibitions are: 'Mey Rahola. A commitment to modernity' (From November 24, 2022 to May 29, 2023) or 'Feliu Elias', (From December 1, 2022 to March 19, 2023). Throughout this year it is also expected to host others, within the section ?Artists in the Museum?, such as 'The eye of the roe deer' (From October 6, 2022 to February of the following year), and other special projects: 'Homeland' by Mabel Palacín and 'Lost Sonorities' by Fito Conesa. In addition, the Museum also offers online exhibitions, which can be accessed on its website. The MNAC offers various recreational and educational activities for all audiences too, as well as lectures, workshops, and courses. It also allows you to explore its historic building, and it has two terrace-viewpoints from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the city of Barcelona. You can buy your ticket at the Museum's ticket office or online, and remember that every Saturday from 15 PM, every first Sunday of the month and during the open days, access is free, although you must go by appointment.
