The Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) was set up as a reference centre for Miró's work and so the general public could learn about Modern art. It is currently the third most-visited museum in Barcelona. 

The Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) was opened in 1975 in Barcelona as a reference center of Joan Miró’s work. The renowned Spanish artist created this foundation with works from his own private collection to promote the study and dissemination of Modern Art in all its facets.
