Top sights in Barcelona
The Gaudi House Museum was the home of the genius himself for two decades in his wonderland Park Güell of Barcelona, Spain. Today it showcases Antoni Gaudi’s unique sense of wonder in nature with his designed objects and furniture.
Like the natural world he was inspired by, nothing about Gaudi’s furniture is ridged or symmetrical. The modernist pieces look as if sculpted from soft clay and no two are alike.
It is strangely humbling to see where the genius himself drafted Sagrada Famila. You may just leave inspired for greatness at your desk!
Gaudi's assistant Matamala was instructed to make this molding of Gaudi upon his death. When the cast was pulled, his eyelid stuck to it as if he was winking at his friend.
It’s deeply humanizing to see where Gaudi laid his head to rest each night—little details left unchanged, like his prayer books, make visiting even more personal.
The house is located in one of his masterpieces, Park Guell. Entry is free, so it is usually quite crowded; come at a off-peak time to find a place to relax.
Many wonder if it's worth it to pay an entry fee to experience such a small museum. With a convenient location, after exploring the park it sits in all afternoon, this humble abode may seem a little underwhelming. At a 5,50€ entrance price, the museum is suited for the sentimentalist that wants a personal look into who the artist was and what his life looked like.
Visiting Parc Guell is an absolute must for Barcelona, so you can be spontaneous about visiting the museum—tickets at the door won’t be a problem.

What people are saying about Gaudi House Museum
This attraction is fantastic and we recommend to visit for everybody who visit Barcelona. We booked the tickets in the morning on the day of the tour but unfortunately it was not received until 16:00 when we had a tour. We had to let tickets be displayed at the ticket office. They do it without problem, but it is a little bit complication... We were a little surprised that internet tickets were more expensive than tickets on spot. Difference 1,70 EUR/ticket.
Park is lovely & not immense so it’s easily doable with your kids. There are large tour groups so be forewarned. Gaudí el was ahead of his time! We got there ahead of our scheduled time & were allowed in - apparently they won’t let you in order f you get there late though.
I am glad I did the tour to learn about the history and an of the park. Our guide Anna Beltran was wonderful - full of energy, funny, passionate and knowledgeable about the park. You can tell she really loves what she does and it made the tour really great.
Our guide for Sagrada Familia "Joe" - was extremely knowledgeable, pleasantly casual and friendly. Our guide for Park Guell - "Anna" (sp?) was FANTASTIC, funny, warm and friendly and my wife and I didn't want the tour to end. Thank you ANNA!
Very nice park. You can spend and hour or two viewing the paid portion of the park and/or spend a good portion of a day exploring the entire park including the talented street performances.
