We are history buffs, so we found a lot to like about this place. If we did not have a grounding in Catalan history, we'd have been overwhelmed by this jumble of lead soldiers, automobiles, flags, iron angels, and mosaic murals. One of us uses...More

Extra friendly and helpful lady in reception but place it self did not offer anything if you can't read Catalan. Lady told that English texts are coming this year.

The museum is modern and accessible. However, if you don't read Catalan there is not enough explanation of the many interesting things on exhibit. The building is very interesting (a former monastery) and the exhibits well presented. But, unfortunately we could not appreciate the City's...More

A wonderful visit on a rainy Sunday. The main attraction is what is below the museum in a self guided walk of what was the Roman City beneath "the old city" of Barcelona. It puts some of the city into a historic perspective.

This museum has really good stuff in it and girona has a fascinating history. However the museum is disjointed and almost all the displays have extensive documentation in Spanish and Catalan but not English. There is a little book in French and English but the...More
