  • Beautiful well appointed new building housing the lifetime collections of Frederic Marès. Wall cabinets and showcases of both the great and mundane beautifully displayed. Impossible to take all of it ...  more »
  • We happened to stumble upon this museum and were pleasantly surprised it was free on Sunday afternoon. LOTS to see. Mostly religious but still intrigued to see how one man could amass so many items.  more »

  • "I sculpt, to buy sculptures." Probably biggest sculpture collection in the world! Really impressive!
  • Enormous amounts of things but very little information about them. Really cool though. We had free entrance on a Sunday, but maybe there's some cost on other days. With some more storytelling this would be one of the coolest places in Barcelona
