Barcelona has a fantastic selection of museums, some of the most gifted artists one lived in the city such as Picasso and Miró.
The Barcelona Art Walk will take your group to three of the most important museums - The Picasso Museum, The National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC) and the Miró Museum.
Together with a highly qualified English Speaking guide you will experience three superb museums in Barcelona.
Dali Museum (approx 2-3hrs from Barcelona)
Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre -Museum was built upon the remains of the former Figueres theatre.
The Museum contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), from his earliest artistic experiences and his creations within the Surrealist movement down to the works of the last years of his life. Figueres is situated around 75 miles from Barcelona.
European Design Institute
Adapatble Travel can arrange for your group to have a guided tour and educational talk from an expanding international network that operates in the areas of operations and training.
Your group will be able to take time to research the disciplines of design, visual arts and communication.
Although designed by Gaudiís colleague, Francesc Berenguer, Gaudi nevertheless had a hand in designing the Garden Pergola and the beautiful furniture.
He lived here from 1906 until his death in 1926, but in the last few years he often slept in his workshop in the Sagrada Familia.
Bookings are not required. Student groups cannot enter between 14h00 and 16h00.
Home to modern art in honour of Joan Miro, the museum itself is a great example of modern design.
The Foundation seeks to bring a new, more dynamic concept of an art museum in which Miró's art was shown alongside a wide variety of creative works by other artists - a fact that is reflected in the Foundation's full name of Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art.
Adaptable Travel can arrange for your group to take part in a great opportunity to use the influences of Gaudi to create your own mosaic masterpieces, with guidance and tuition from a mosaic expert.

Museu Nacional díArt de Catalunya (MNAC)
Built in 1990, the MNAC is home to all types of art including sculpture, paintings, drawings and engravings to name a few. The museum also houses the best collection of Romanesque murals in the world, including some real gems from the Pyrenean region.
This museum takes you on an uninterrupted journey through a thousand years of Catalan Art.
Opened in 1963, it is said one cannot truly appreciate Picasso without visiting this museum.
With over 3,800 works in the permanent collection, the museum has recently undergone many renovations and is currently starting to develop new programmes, activities and services to become a reference place, envisaged to spreading knowledge to all visitors.
Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACABA)
Opened to the public in November 1995, the MACBA seeks to bring contemporary art to a wider audience, through its collection, which focuses on artistic creation in the second half of the century and the staging of seasonal exhibitions.
The museum houses a permanent collection, which dates from the mid - 20th century onward. There are three periods of modern art represented: the first one covers the forties to the sixties; the second spans the sixties and seventies; the third period is contemporary
Pubol, Daliís House in Portlligat
The present Portlligat House-museum was Salvador Dalíís only fixed abode from 1930, the place in which he normally lived and worked up till 1982 when, upon his wife, Galaís death, he took up residence at Púbol Castle.
The labyrinthine type structure of the house spreads out and winds around in a succession of zones linked by narrow corridors, slight changes of level and blind passageways. All the rooms have windows of different shapes and proportions framing the same landscape that is a constant point of reference in Dalíís work: the Portlligat bay.
Sagrada Familia Cathedral
Worked on for over 40 years, the Sagrada Familia represents Gaudiís dedication to build a church replete with precise symbolic meaning. The irony is that this masterpiece was unfinished by the time he died in 1926 and is still unfinished today.
Located in the church crypt, the museum tells the story of how the Sagrada Familia came about and how the building work evolved
