Article updated 25 November, 2019. 0 comments

Visiting Barcelona as a family? Looking for a fun way to introduce children to the city's cultural heritage? Head for Montjuïc and the Miró Foundation!

Montjuïc and the Miró Foundation

Barcelona is a city packed with surprises, a great place to visit as a family. Montjuïc and the Miró Foundation are particularly good sites to explore with children, offering a healthy dose of culture in a pleasant, green setting with relatively limited traffic.

The museums and parks of Montjuïc also offer a whole host of fun and educational activities for younger visitors.

Montjuïc and the Miró Foundation: a guided tour designed with children in mind

Miró Foundation Barcelona

Touring Montjuïc and the Miró Foundation, you’ll discover the work of an artist who particularly appeals to children, with his use of bright colours and pleasing round shapes scattered throughout its works. The Miró Foundation is one of the most popular destinations for school trips in Barcelona, and for good reason!

  • Children are often struck by the contrast between Miró’s serious appearance and dress – he always wore a tie – and his fun, colourful paintings and sculptures. Miró offers us a view into a childlike imaginary world which appeals to young and old alike.
  • The rest of the tour offers a healthy dose of fresh air, far from the hustle and bustle of the city! Discover Mediterranean plants, see Barcelona from above, and take the time to simply play in some of Montjuïc’s many parks.

The private tour

The tour starts at the Miró Foundation, where the guide will take you on a journey into the artist’s world, with simple and accessible explanations. The focus is on some of Miró’s favourite themes: the countryside, nature, the Mediterranean and simplicity.

Next stop is the Parc Joan Brossa, a ten-minute walk away, to discover this original and fun-loving poet, whose visual poems can be found scattered throughout the city. The park is a particularly good place to visit as a family, with a whole host of sound-games to discover… but we don’t want to give too much away!
