Having shaped plenty of the Barcelona architectural landmarks, it’s surprising that until 2012 there wasn’t any kind of hub dedicated to Antoni Gaudí, until Gaudi Experiència came along.

Gaudí Experiència it’s an exciting new addition and a breeze of fresh air into Barcelona’s attractions. But what is it exactly?  Is it a museum? Is it a 4D movie theater? Is it an interactive learning experience? Basically it’s all that into one and much more. According to the dictionary, an experience stands for: “the act of living through events”, and that’s exactly what we went through when visiting Gaudí Experience.

It’s the first interactive space in Barcelona that gathers everything concerning Gaudi under one same roof, but it definitely can’t be filed into just one category.

One of the highlights of Gaudi Experiència is the mesmerizing audiovisual event that takes you to the heart of Gaudi’s world of creativity. The greatest challenge was translating effectively into the big screen something abstract and ethereal like ideas, thoughts and architectural language without using words, just music and images.

You’ll embark on a journey to the past where you’ll be able to see, feel and almost touch the vibrant atmosphere of 19th century Barcelona, as well as learning what sparked Gaudi’s inspiration to create the famous buildings that shaped Barcelona.

Gaudi Experiencia invites you to delve deep into Gaudi’s universe through state-of-the-art giant interactive boards (featuring one area especially designed for children) that reveal all his life and works in nine languages at the touch of your fingertips. With the help of 3D models, discover projects that never materialized, such as Gaudi’s proposal for a skyscraper in Manhattan, or the secrets behind Parc Güell’s draining system.

Located right beside Parc Güell, it makes perfect sense to visit both attractions on the same day.
