What people are saying about Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya
We were able to get our voucher printed at the Sant train station Information desk where they also then gave us our passports and got us on our way. We didn’t see that as a possibility in the information we were emailed, so it felt like a lucky find. Made things very easy. We only were able to utilize two days, as that was the duration of our stay (actually, just 1-1/2 days). But, even at that, it more than easily paid for itself. We saw several museums (Picasso, Dissemy, Míro, etc.) and sights (Parc Guell, Sagrada Família, etc.) and were able to traverse the entire city quickly and easily via the included bus and metro.
Everything in the museum was great. I loved the exhibitions about Gala and Salvador Dali. The museum was not too crowded so you could walk around freely. The only negative thing I have to say is about one of the receptionists. I showed her my ticket and told me that I need to go to the other desk and dismissed me just like that and moved on to the next customer. Not even friendly at all. She never mentioned where the other desk was so I just felt lost for a moment.
The card only gives you discounts if you buy tickets in the offices, where you have to stand in a long line. Many tickets can be bought online, and the card doesn't work there, which I find to be an oversight. As of now, it makes more sense to buy a transport ticket in a vending machine, and then buy all the entrance passes online — this way you will save more than with this card. Other than that, everything was fine.
The pass I think depends on how long you will be there - I am not convinced that was value for money as quite a lot of the activities were not free - you only received a discount - and the ones that were free were relatively inexpensive and you could purchase easily at the time with no great expense. The travel card was good and made life easy for getting around the city
The Barcelona card is really useful for people who want to visit many museums and attractions, and do not have a car. Besides the gratuities and discounts at museums, having 120h to travel by any public transportation mean is really comfortable and confident in very handy for a tourist.
