Barcelona is the perfect destination for art and culture fanatics. The city is rich in history and has an abundance of museums to visit, many of which offer free entry on special dates and specific week days and hours.

Without a doubt there will be exhibitions, attractions and museums that you are willing to pay a small fee visit, but why not take advantage of the many free museum days Barcelona has to offer. 


Most museums will offer special discounts for children, students, pensioners, families etc. Remember to check each museum for specific details. If you don’t fall into any of the specified categories, you can invest in discount cards.
