Once I found the Picasso Museum it was great. It is virtually hidden and requires lots of directions to get there. Once there, skipped the lines and went right in.
This was my sixth of 9 events that I scheduled with Viator on my European vacation to Italy, Spain and France. After getting off the ship, we were hoping to walk to City Hall to get our museum passes however, in my opinion it was too far to walk. Fortunately, we were able to take a 10 - 12min shuttle from the port to La Ramblas which if I'm not mistaken is right in the city center for 8 euro each/2 ways 16 euro total for the both of us both ways. From there we used our GPS to walk about 20 minutes to City Hall and after asking a few questions about the actual correct entrance into the building, we were able to show our vouchers and obtain our passes. This was a fairly simple process for us, since I had read the reviews ahead of time regarding the confusion on finding the locations to obtain the passes. So we avoided a lot of the needless walking around or walking in the wrong direction. Fortunately, the Picasso Museum was about a 7 - 10 minute walk from there. My GPS on the phone was fantastic in navigating the area. We didn't choose to visit other museums which were not very close by but we spent most of our afternoon at the Picasso Museum which was our real interest as far as the museums café and gelateria. One note, I had seen some of Picasso's work in the past. However, I had not seen his work on nudes. Personally, I felt that the nudes were not the typical nude photos I was accustomed to seeing like in Rome. They were a little more explicit for my taste So keep this in mind especially if you are taking children. I believe that was Room 7. However, the rest of his artwork in the other rooms were very nice to see and more suited for our taste each room is designated by a number. All in all, I love how easy everything was for us to find. This allowed us time to enjoy more of the city sights, shops, cafes and not lose precious vacation time. The lovely red passport like booklet is a great keepsake. Now off to Marseille, France.
Right to the front of the line and each of the museums is spectacular!
Excellent variety in museums. Some, we would have never selected ourselves yet we appreciated each and every on. Basic art with insight to artists through cultural displays through education about buildings and communities gave us diverse insights and memories.
The museums were fantastic. The Picasso museum was in a great neighborhood.
Easy to get at the airport and great to have. Enabled us to skip the lines.
Great experience, my pass was honored at all the museums included in the pass.
This was a great thing. We really enjoyed our trip and the pass was very appreciated.
Great value, allows you to wonder around this beautiful city and not worry about missing a booking time at one or other museum. Stay as long or as little as you want and go to the next one. Great way to experience the city - and the museums are spectacular.
Great. We picked up the museum pass at the tourist office and visited three museums so far. Easy entrance, no lines and discount pricing. Thank you, MORT
Well worth the money. The new design is very cool as it looks like a passport where each museum puts a stamp on, and you can keep as a souvenir. I didn't have time to visit all museums but I loved the MNAC. The building itself is beautiful and offers great views of Barcelona from the roof terrace. They also have a collection of furniture Gaudi designed for some buildings in Barcelona. I had visited some of those buildings already so it was great to be able to picture those chairs, wardrobes etc in those rooms.

The tour was great. Watch valuables in car. Car window was broken and passports and cameras were stolen.
Excellent value. When combined with the hop-on/hop-off bus it made visiting the fabulous museums of Barcelona easy and cheap
Made it to all but 1 of the museums during my stay. Pass would have been worth it just to skip the long line at the Picasso Museum.
