The display above the ruins of ancient Jewish quarter tells the history of Jews in Barcelona. There is not much of a collection. If you're interested in that subject I would highly recommend visiting the nearby old synagogue and hear the explanation.

Pros: Good to get basic history of Jews in Barcelona, short visit Cons: Small museum, limited information on Barcelona's Jewish community, difficult to reserve guided visits I wish they'd provide more information on the current state (and future) of Jewish communities in Barcelona (Catalunya)

Many displays to read of Jewish history in Catalonia. The video (in English) was the best part. I was surprised they didn't provide more of an explanation of the excavated Jewish home you walked over.

It was the only museum we visit after we got a recommendation from our Runner Bean guide. It was fantastic way to discover the history of the city. Fortunately, not everything is translated to English and this was quite disappointing.

Absorbing and well curated display of Barcelona's history including Roman ruins underground. ?7 entry fee includes good audioguide and is well worth it.

This is an archealogical dig under the existing city. Step back into the past and see some of the old Roman town, wander round the fish sauce factory, a villa, winery, laundry and more all below ground. Worth a visit if you are interested in...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
