Great place to visit. You can access the roof and look over the town and over towards the harbour. Steep stairs but there is a lift some access for disabled is available also.

Beautiful building, short informative introductory film about Tarraco/Tarragona available in several languages, a wide variety of exhibits so everyone should find something to interest them, and well lit displays. We particularly enjoyed the mosaics and glass. Spent around an hour there.

Great value and all within walking distance. There are probably 5 or 6 ancient roman sites in this former Roman Capital city that you can easily manage to see in a day. The Roman Theater, Roman Circus, Roman walls, forum and amphitheatre are the best...More

Spread out over several floors, this museum is constantly interesting. The views of Tarragona from the top of the museum are vast. At every corner there are diagrams, so that you know what it is you are looking at from the roof top. On each...More

This is a nice compact museum spread over three floors, giving a peak into the development of various art forms of the Roman times. It has a unique small Romantic museum within it, well worth a visit! I was reminded of the sculptures of Khajuraho,...More
