Barcelona's wide variety of museums lends itself to an array of people, including art and history buffs, designers as well as families and children. When people think of Barcelona's museums, usually Picasso and Miro come to mind, however there are other, wonderful, family-friendly options, which particularly lend themselves to children and those who aren't particularly interested in museum visits. In addition to the art and history scene, the city boasts creative and fun options including the Shoe Museum, the Wax Museum and the Chocolate Museum to touch on just a few. The Ideas Museum is particularly popular, especially amongst youngsters.
One of the greatest aspects about museums in Barcelona is that even if the adults want to visit a slightly less 'child-friendly' one, the Museums are often situated in beautiful locations with gorgeous views, so that you often forget you're inside a museum. Montjuic is one of the best lookout points in the city and atop this mountain are several museums, including peaceful gardens which provide an alternative for those who really don't feel like entering. The Miro Museum, is also a nice way to see a part of the city that is less touristy, as it's not located in the city center or even in the Eixample neighborhood, like so many of the others.
