The Museum of the History of Catalonia, have the purpose "to conserve, exhibit and raise awareness of the history of Catalonia as our joint heritage and to strengthen citizens' sense of identification with the nation's history". In order to achieve...more
The museum is a great place to visit and located next to the marina. After you're done visiting the museum go to the rooftop terrace on the 4th floor for a drink and/or light snack. It has great views of the marina, sea, and city.
Fairly large museum that covers the history of the region in a very interactive way. While my wife and I toured the museum without an audio guide we noticed many young children on field trip. We downloaded an app to find highlights, but ended up...More
A really good and thorough museum.
I particularly liked the interactive parts of the museum which come as a respite to a lot of reading.
For someone who knows nothing able Catalonian history, and wants to learn, this is must.
The museum was totally worth it. If you would like to better understand why Catalonians believe they do today, than this is a must see. It took me about two hours to view the entire exhibit, and I learned a lot about the Catalonian history...More
The Catalans are proud of their history. They were republicans and not Franco lovers. The exhibits are well done and do focus on how Catalonia was a separate political entity "united" into Spain and was a self governing for a time under Spain. All apparently...More
Highly recommending this place. My friends and I spend hours on the terrace and it was very busy, but WOW the team work was fantastic. We come from the hospitality business and it is great to see how the service goes somewhere else. One of...More
This is a small exhibition and not quite what I expected but it was very interesting. It’s mainly a shop with lovely Catalan arts and craft pieces and screens giving historical accounts of the Catalan people and early Homanids that lived here thousands of years...More
My husband and I visited this museum so we could learn about the history of this area. I read reviews that said it took about 2 1/2 hours. It too us 5 hours. That is because we read everything and talked about it as we...More
In our guidebook it showed this place as having ruins of he old city so we hopped over but it actually was the wrong place its still a quite interesting museum. There are temporary works which are free but you pay €4.50 I think it...More
We just returned from five days in Barcelona and find it our duty to inform the traveling public that the restaurant and roof-top bar is nothing short of fantastic. It is our most favorite bar in Barcelona, with a view of the marina, the city...More
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in
the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
