  • Nice museum which explains well the early history of Barcelona. Not very interactive though and only some information is available in English. The best part is the underground where you can see ruins from Roman times.

  • I recommend anyone to visit this museum. From prehistory to modern age, they got artefacts to show. Also it was interesting to see the evolution of a church building from a roman temple. You will need 3 hours at most. So don't miss!

  • This museum is the right place to get information about the history and development of the city. Many of the exhibits have English descriptions next to it and also many of the information texts. However, not all the information is also provided in English. Additionally, there are great audio guides available in many languages including English, Japanese and German for example. In my opinion, the whole exhibition is well designed and informative. Students get discounts for their tickets. I recommend to plan at least 1,5h to visit this museum.

  • The place is nice... it's just that I come from a country full of roman archeology and didn't realise that the very excited reviews were due to the period. I found it a bit dull due to that. It's a classic dig with some information about the life in that time. Wish they'd elaborated more about the earlier period and the city's borders and size. If you've never been to a good dig then.it's a cool place otherwise a bit... meh. Still had a good time though and the summed information on the periods etc was good.
