    Casa-Museu de Gaudi

    There is the Gaudi's house-museum (Casa-Museu de Gaudi) in Guell park. The arcitect lived there from 1906 till 1926. Being engaged in the organization of park space, Gaudi tried to keep everything created by the nature as much as possible. Therefore it is possible to admire true caves, unusual thin columns reminding trees, fantastic flowers.
    Today this private centre is open to the public to give the visitor a more intimate glimpse of the Catalan architect.

    You can watch my 5 min 16 sec Video Barcelona Park Guell by Gaudi part 1 out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

    The house where Gaudi lived

    In this house Gaudi lived his last 20 years from 1906 to 1926. You can see many personal belongings of Gaudi as well as his well-known furniture designs. It is quite interesting to see where the great master lived, slept and ate. It gives you another perspective besides the architectural masterpieces he left behind.

    Antoni Gaudi Museum

    by yvgr Updated Apr 7, 2012

    The Antoni Gaudi Museum is located in same area as Parc Guell. Its a lovely pink house and it also used to be Gaudi's home. Highly recommended if your're intrested in Gaudi's art and life, times. He lived here 1906-1925... Really an interesting house to experience and walk around in.

    Gaudis' house is spectacular

    by Benson35 Updated Jan 31, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To enter Gaudi's house there is a fee (approx. 17 euros). The queues may be big, but what a feast for the eyes it is!! The curves of the windows and walls, the mosaic front, the staircases, the rooms and the chimney rooftop.
    I don't want to spoil it for you so I will keep this review short and sweet!

    Look at the pictures to get a feel of the house. It's a great way to spend a morning/afternoon.

    There is wheelchair access to the ground and first floors but not the roof top.

    The museum gives us a glance at another aspect of the Gaudi mind, the day to day things that make a home. Here you can see things like a glass and wood partition panel, a curvilinear mirror, chairs, benches and even a table, all designed by Gaudi.
    Entrance fee is 5.50 Euro, but only 4.50 if you have your Barcelona Card.

    Anton Gaudi House

    by Rupanworld Written Oct 13, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Park Guell was originally designed to be a private residential district and a house was built by his assistants in it to serve as a sample house for potential purchasers. But the project never materialised and hence, Gaudi himself purchased this house in 1906 and lived here for 20 years until his death and worked here. The house has a simple architecture, not like Gaudi signature pieces, because then it would have been easier to sell to potential purchasers. The house is now converted into a museum and exhibits Gaudi's work and life and includes drawings by him.

    Casa Museu Gaudi

    by Joacim Written Dec 27, 2007

    Between 1906 and 1926, Gaudí lived in a house located in Parc Güell. The house, known as the Casa Museu Gaudí, was designed by Francesc Berenguer. It serves as a museum and displays some of Gaudí's furniture (including some from the Casa Batlló) and drawings.

    It was exciting to see how this geniuous lived. But not only lived but also his furniture, drawings, which was a side of Gaudi I didn't knew anything about until I came to Barcelona. It is alsoexciting to look into someones home, even though a museum isn't like a home but anyway :-)

    Pillar.. Mosaic.. Casa Museu Gaudi..

    by sylina Updated Apr 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    you may see this a lot as a typical photo shot for the unique lane in Parc Guell..

    The pink house used to be Gaudi's residence on a stage. A bit surprised to find out it wasn't built by himself but Francesc Berenguer in 1904. Gaudi lived here from 1906 to 1926. It contains original works by Gaudi and by several of his closest collaborators. In 1969 it was declared a historical-artistic Monument of national interest. The Casa-Museu Gaudi was founded in 1963 by the "Amics de Gaudi".Visiting hours: October-March 10-18 hours. April-September 10-20 hours.
    ----- information collected from the direction of Casa Museu..

    Parc Guell locates on a hill land in Gracia district.. you may get a great view on different heights...

    Casa-Museu Gaudi

    by sue_stone Updated Feb 27, 2007

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located within Park Guell, up the hill to the right of the entrance, is the Casa-Museu Gaudi. This is the house that Gaudi lived in for most of the last 20 years of his life - from 1906 to 1926.

    The house was not actually designed by Gaudi himself, but by Francesc Berenguer i Mestres. It was supposed to be a prototype or show-home to help sell the 60 or more homes that were projected to have been built in the failed housing development which later became the park.

    Today, the structure of the building is still the same as when Gaudi lived there. A visit to the museum is well worth while, as not only is it an interestingly designed building itself, but you get the chance to see some of Gaudi's personal possessions.

    You will see some of the great architect's drawings, and better still a selection of his quirky furniture, including some that used to be housed in Casa Batllo.

    Opening Hours:
    Apr to Sep - Daily from 10am-8pm
    Oct to Mar - Daily from 10am-6pm

    Admission cost: 4 euro (Feb 2007), or 1 euro if you buy the combined ticket at the Sagrada Familia

    Gaudi's house - Casa de Gaudí

    by spanishguy Updated Jul 19, 2006

    The Park Güell was a project of luxurious neighborhood with more than 40 houses inside a park. The Great War stopped the projects because just two houses were bought, one of them the Gaudí's house. Currently it's a museum showing some of his personal belongings, furniture designs, fences of different buildings...

    El Parque Güell era un proyecto de barrio de lujo con más de 40 casas dentro de un parque. La Gran Guerra paró el proyecto pues sólo se compraron dos casas, una de ellas la de Gaudí. Actualmente esta es un museo mostrando algunas de sus pertenencias personales, diseño de muebles, cancelas de difrentes edificios...

    MUSEU CASA GAUDI

    by hevbell Updated Jun 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parc Guell was originally intended to have around 60 houses but only 2 were ever built. One of those is the house that ended up as home to Antoni Gaudi for a number of years and is now open to the public. I didn't go in as I didn't really have enough time to do it justice but you can walk around the outside without paying the fee.

    Within Parc Güell lies a house designed and inhabited by Gaudí in the early 1900's. The house is now a museum displaying furniture designed by the architect himself. Well worth a visit if you are in the park. The house has excellent views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean.

    Constructed in 1904 this building was the Barons of Quadras residence. Today it houses the music museum. The architect Puig i Calafalch used an elegant interior design and the exterior of the building, there is extensive use of metalfor the main entrance. The gothic influence here is quite evident.

    Since Guell intended this park to be a storybook residence for some of Barcelona's wealthy Gaudi planned for some residential establishments. This one is where he spent the remaining years of his life and is open to the public. There are displays of furniture that he designed as well as other memorabilia.
