Tip of the Week

Barcelona is home to a variety of museums. Two of the
best museums to visit during your trip
are the Picasso museum and the Barbier-Mueller Museum of Pre-Columbian Art.

The Picasso museum is a must while in Barcelona and can be an excellent day trip
for a family or small group. Picasso spent several years of his life in Barcelona
and the museum features some of the artist's early work. Pieces in the museum
include some of his childhood sketches as well as some pictures from his Rose
and Blue periods. The museum is open for tours Tuesday through Sunday at a cost
of about 5 Euro. It is closed on Mondays.

The Barbier-Mueller Museum of Pre-Columbian Art is the only museum in Europe
that is completely dedicated to pre-Columbian art. The museum is small and
contains only around 100 different pieces of art. Items include ceramics,
sculptures, tapestries, and other archaeological gems from the territory
between Mesoamerica and South America before the
Spanish arrived. The Barbier-Mueller
Museum is closed on Mondays but
is open the remainder of the week and weekend. Children under sixteen can enter
the museum for free and with general admission is 3 Euros. Discounted tickets
are available for students and large groups.

Other museums you may want to visit during your Barcelona
vacation are Gaudi Casa-Museu, Gaudiís Alice-in-Wonderland house and Fundacio
Miro, a contemporary art museum.
