Gaudi Exhibition Centre

Antoni Gaudi designed some of the most fascinating buildings in the world and it’s only befitting that he’d have a dedicated museum in his hometown. Nestled in the heart of the city, it’s a fantastic way to see into the mind of the architect and see scaled down models of his work, as he preferred to design from miniatures rather than blueprints. There’s also a fantastic digital exhibition that incorporates video, VR and audio for an all-encompassing and interactive experience of his works.

The Gaudi Exhibition Centre is free for those with a Barcelona Pass.
