  • This is a very small, modest museum. The curators have done a good job at making something out of what is a surprisingly small collection. However for most tourists, there are so many other things to....  more »
  • I went to see an interesting photo exhibition about cities. The exhibition was made with a lot of attention. Unfortunately, there were no English speaking guides or headphones with English language.  more »

  • Pretty good museum! They have lockers for free (you just put in a €1 coin and get it back after) and the audio guide is included in the cheap €7 ticket. The ticket gives you access to about a dozen other museums throughout the city. The coolest part of this museum is going underground to see the original structures from the days that the Ancient Romans settled it in the first century BC. There is a lot of information you can read, but maybe 40% of the time the info is only in Catalan or Spanish. The rest of the time there is English as well. So definitely get the audio guide which has a bunch of languages.
  • The place is really nice. I loved the idea in the elevator of changing the time as we are coming down to the times of the Romans and "going around the old City". Will definitely come back.
