We first visited this museum 10 years ago, on subsequent visits to Barcelona it had been closed for remodeling but we found it open this time so went back! It takes about 1.5 hours to explore and you will learn a lot about the important Maritime history of Barcelona.

Old shipyard with impressive architecture, nicely curated exhibition and wonderful restaurant/cafe. We absolutely loved it. You should invest 90 min to two hours for the exhibition. The inside architecture is very photogenic and we spent lots of times with taking pictures of the beautiful arches and space. The exhibition had a modern audio tour system which gave a good insight... More

Went on asking the staff are there a period of time which is free entrance, stare at me and said 'we have to make a living', I gave a ridiculed look and... More

Was expecting an Country with such a rich naval history to have a bigger museum but i assume it's in the capital... What this one has is a beautiful full scale Replica of a spanish Galley ship. Which probably pays for the admission itself. Take the audio guide when you walk in. And make sure you wait around near the... More

After wandering around down by the Columbus Column, I read the Maritime (maritim) Museum opened at 10 AM on Sunday. It was relatively inexpensive and provided a great review of the history of Barcelona and the sea. Audio headphones are provided and they keep up with where you are automatically. Two things stand out: 1) The museum is located at... More

This museum is housed in a beautiful building, which makes the tour worthwhile. The exhibits are very visual and there are some interactive ones that might be good for kids. imwas hoping for more information on how the Mediterranean was us d for transport of goods and fishing, not much of that here.

We went on a Sunday afternoon. It is free entry after 3pm. The museum was not busy. Nice and lots to do and see. Good if you looking to keep the kids occupied for a couple of hours.

The price was right and the headphone narrative was good but the video was poor. The big replica warship was great and there were a lot of replicas of smaller boats but few actual older boats. Worth seeing.

We were here about 20 years ago and loved it again. This time with kids 11 and 13, they enjoyed it as well. The Titanic expo was very expensive and not worth it, interesting but to expensive for what it was.

So close to the end of Las Rambles, yet so under-utilised on the day we visited. This is a spacious and well laid out museum, with a section that is animated about the development of the fleet and ship building in Barcelona. It doesn't sound exciting, but it is very good! You will need headphones and it's a real treat... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
