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

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

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
