Thursday 6-9:30pm Picasso museum free admission

We will be in Barcelona in late August.

During the Thursday evening free admission period, do we need to line up to get a free ticket, or simply walk in? If we have to get a free ticket, how long is the line usually is?

Is there a capacity limit during the free admission period?

Thanks.

Yes you have to queue

Of course there's capacity limit :)... fire&health regulations still apply!

Forget about free days in August... you'll waste a heck of a lot of time queueing -and it still could be for nothing.

The queue when the museum is free is very, very long.

It seems that the procedure has changed now, you MUST pre-book online from the Monday of the week you want to visit. Be quick though, I can imagine the free tickets are gone within hours (or rather minutes, lol!).

(Thanks Slatkin for the update!)

Enric M is right. Now you have to pre-book the tickets for the free day on their website. Tickets are only available 4 days before the date so my advice is be there just when they open them.

Thank you Eric, Benny and Sputrip for your information. I would be already travelling 4 days before arriving Barcelona, and can't be sure to sit in front of a computer at a precise hour. So I'll just go during paid time.

I'm considering to book tickets now for August for

- Picasso Museum,

- Casa Mila,

- Sagrada Familia,

- Park Guell

Anywhere else I need to prebook to avoid long lines?

Actually, the rule is: if you can pre-book, do it!, especially in August. Check the respective websites and see if pre-booking is available.
