Any advice for above? Thanks.

I would go early if possible and you might beat the crowds...Whenever you go, get your tickets in advance if at all possible. Well worth the effort. You can get them from the site for the Sagrada Familia on the web and print them out.

We went around 6 pm last summer, and stayed until close to it closed. The line moved quickly and it was not crowded.

Lori....Know you will enjoy it. The best experience for me (second visit) was just to sit in one of the seats and enjoy....the stained glass, the architecture, the people, just to enjoy!!!
You can find several bits of information on various web sites to give you a preview, but until you are actually in the structure you can not fully appreciate it.

A tip - just inside the Nativity entry is a smallish room with displays on the things that inspired Gaudi and examples of his designs based on those inspirations. Really well done and more informative than the museum on the lower level (which is also worth it too for the models).

Lori,

Be sure to allow lots of time, especially if you'll be making a trip up one of the towers. There's also an interesting museum on the lower floors, so that's worth a visit too. Be sure to pay attention to your entrance time, as I found that they are VERY punctual and they won't let you enter until almost your appointed time. The same is true for tower reservations.
