After Gaudí’s death in 1926, the house (located in Park Güell) was acquired and occupied by private owners. Years later, on 28 September 1963, the site opened to the public as the Gaudí House Museum.
Since 1992, the house has been owned by the Construction Board of La Sagrada Família Foundation which has refurbished the building to evoke the period when the architect lived there. As well as exhibiting furniture and other objects that Gaudí designed, the foundation has also improved and refurbished the gardens by restoring and enhancing the different elements displayed there.
The Gaudí House Museum is situated in the centre of Barcelona, Spain. The nearest airport is Barcelona Airport – El Prat and is approximately 13 kms to the city centre. From the airport you can take the RENFE train, Aerobus express bus service or a taxi. Getting from the city centre to Gaudí House Museum on public transport can be done via the metro L3 Lesseps or by city bus 24, 92, 32, 116 and H6.

From the first, the Gaudí House Museum has focused on illustrating the life and work of Gaudí above and beyond his status as an architect. For this reason, over the years, furniture that he designed has been acquired, as well as objects and documents linked to his life. Such was Antoni Gaudí’s attention to detail when planning architectural works that he would often even design the furniture for them. Although his early designs imitated historic styles, Gaudí’s search for his own, personal language, inspired by nature, soon led him to create unusual ergonomic and functional solutions and are illustrated in the works hosted in the museum.
