Museu Maritim Reviews & Ratings
It’s a great spot for 90 minutes with modern multi-lingual audio guides included in the entrance. They lead you through the exhibition without entering numbers :-). Great information in three languages on displays, enough interactive displays for younger ones. Some explanations are a bit political to demonstrate Catalunya‘s stake as a country (using the kingdom of Sicily to throw out the French ;-)). Interesting facets about life and history on the sea. In a beautiful ship factory. To revisit.
A great 1-2 hour self guided tour. While not a big museum it boasts well done interactive displays, plenty of scale models and an amazing full size replica of the style ships built in that location. Well worth the time and reasonable admission.
One of the best places to visit! Amazing maquettes and ship models, interactive screens, presentations. You could spend 3h easily getting lost between the models and listening to the audio guide.
Really beautiful museum. I like the architecture of the building and there are many useful information. And it's free on Sunday from 3pm.
It was disappointing to be honest. I was expecting to see many ships or the ancients of the ships but it was mostly the models of the ships or the pictures of them. They have one big ship inside but the restoration of the ship was a failure I think because it wasn't looking old. It looks like cheap replica.
