The building itself is fantastic. The walk up the many flights of stairs is awesome. The view from the front of the museum is outstanding. The collection is very well displayed. Unfortunatley the collection itself is not particularly notable.

This is a stunning, grand building containing a very impressive art collection. We spent about two hours browsing the galleries and an hour or two enjoying the terraced gardens and outdoor cafes. Great view over the city. Well worth a visit and it's free !

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça
Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in
front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie
Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of
their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
