It was great. The collection is very fine. There are recognizable orchestra instruments, instruments in chronological sequence, instruments from around the world and experimental modern instruments looking really weird. The glass cases let you see them from any angle (and take some great pictures), but...More

As the title implies, I've visited a number (around 6 at last count) of Musical Instrument Museums globally over the years, and I must say, the Museu de la Musica in Barcelona was definitely one of the best, if not the best that I have...More

We visited the museum because it was free and we were nearby. It was way better than expected. The exhibits traced the history of music from before written notes to modern Catalonia rock. Not something we would usually enjoy but the presentation was excellent and...More

Nice display of classic musical instruments. Wouldn't go out of my way unless you are classical music lover but if you're in the area with time, and you love music, it's worth going.

Me and my dad visited this museum. I am very interested in music, he's not at all but we both found the museum very interesting and special.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
