Not much English on the signage, the Roman area had none at all. Good to look at some things but we couldn't appreciate much of it as we couldn't read about the history. Left afte rhalf an hour. Nice area to walk around though

Great museum for archaeology. If you want to know about the archaeology of Catalonia, and enjoy museums, don't miss this one. Well worth a visit. Nicely laid out exhibitions.

The museum houses mostly Greek and Roman artifacts. Makes sense since the Greeks and Romans occupied Spain for quite a few years. The place is worth about 1 1/2 hour visit/tour.

This museum is a must for any fan of Archaeology. As you wander the lower halls, you will be taken from the origins of man through stone tool development and the later bronze and iron ages.

Excellent archaeological exhibition, beautifully curated in modern and up-to-date (oh, the irony) facilities. The collection is thematically organized within a broad, chronological framework covering prehistory, antiquity and the Middle ages. However, the installations theselves are thematically oriented, covering topics as diverse as death, social structure,...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça
Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in
front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie
