Montserrat Museum offers a collection of 1,300 pieces, ranging from an Egyptian sarcophagus to works by Picasso and Dali. Located in an old monastery, this museum’s collection was started by a monk who traveled extensively through the Middle East, and has since been expanded by private donations. Tour through the six permanent collections as well as the constantly changing special exhibits. Highlights include archaeology of the biblical Middle East, with objects from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Cyprus, and Israel; paintings from the 13th to the 18th century, including works by Caravaggio, Tiepolo, Berruguete, Morales, Luca Giordano, and El Greco; and 19th- and 20th-century Catalan paintings and sculptures from Picasso, Dali, Degas, Miro, Monet, Rusiñol, and Casas. See varying depictions of the Black Madonna of Montserrat, Byzantine and Slavic icons, and gold worship objects from the 15th through 20th centuries. To wrap up your stay, stop by the gift shop.

Museu com ótimo acervo, apesar de pequeno. Tem caravaggio, Monet, Salvador dali, entre outros! Não deixe de ir! more »Museum with great collection, although small. It has Caravaggio, Monet, Salvador from there, among others! Don't let go!
It’s a nice little gallery with some big hitters on the walls. Admittedly for me the best thing about this (with a 9-month old in early July) was the air conditioning, bliss. Well worth the €8 entry. Joking aside it’s a good addition to the walk around the church.
Surprisingly good, some real world-class art here. And some Egyptian and neolithoc pieces at the end.
