Casa Museu Gaudí

The Gaudí House Museum was the home of the architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852-1926) from 1906 until 1925. It was built as a show house for the Park Güell development scheme and designed by Francesc d'Assís Berenguer i Mestres (1866-1914), the architect's friend and right-hand man.

It opened to the public as the Gaudí House Museum on 28th September 1963. Since 1992 it has been owned by the Fundació Junta Constructora del Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, which has restored the house to give us an insight into Gaudí's life and work and what it was like when he lived there.

Gaudí's house
The Gaudí House Museum currently features an exhibition designed to give visitors an insight into Gaudí's world recreating some of his private rooms and displaying his personal items. It also includes an audiovisual exhibit.

Gaudí designer
The original furniture on display inside the Gaudí House Museum comes from the Casa Calvet, the Casa Batlló and the crypt of the Colònia Güell and gives us a glimpse into the way the architect's designs evolved. Gaudí's creativity and ability to innovate can also be seen in the objects on display in the garden, including the wrought iron railings from the Casa Vicens and the Casa Milà, and the cross from the Miralles estate.
