Museu D'historia De Barcelona Muhba Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting museum about the early history of Barcelona. If you are interested in archaeology this is a must go in Barcelona. Sometimes it's a bit difficult to keep the orientation in relation to the city and to differentiate the eras. We went in for free on a Sunday afternoon and the time was enough, took about 2,5 hours to see everything
Barcelona does not do art museums well as although there are many artists of great renown from here their main pieces are elsewhere. But Barcelona does history museums amazingly well. This is my favorite. You can rush through it or meander and get lots out of it and an idea of the past of the region and space.
This is amazing. You never know what's beneath your feet. Some of the audio guide runs out before you have the whole story, and doesn't quite match to where you are. Take your time and imagine what came before.
This museum has a somewhat limited selection of artifacts but the excavations of the Roman ruins beneath a museum are really cool to visit. It shows that there is a whole city beneath the streets of modern Barcelona. Free access if you go there on Sundays.
No where near a comprehensive history of Barcelona. Still a decent time but 80% of it was show casing the Roman walls and baths.
