People have always wanted to understand more about the diverse nature of life on Earth and the mysterious manner in which animal species have appeared or disappeared in the course of history.Barcelona (Catalonia)and our paleontological MuseumHelping you understand just that is our mission here at the Barcelona Mammoth Museum, a museum of paleontology which was inaugurated in the year 2010—as it happens, just two years after the most recent Ice Age remains in this part of the world were discovered in the form of some 400 animal fragments unearthed in the seaside town of Viladecans.Housing a varied collection of prehistoric animal skeletons and other remains as well as life-size animal reproductions, the Barcelona Mammoth Museum is designed to offer both the general public and specialist researchers a window on the nature of the Ice Age and Ice Age animals. The exhibits were brought together with the help of some of the world’s most complete paleontological collections and with prehistoric remains excavated during expeditions in the Americas, Canada and Russia.On a visit to our Museum, visitors will be able to actually touch and feel the teeth and tusks of a mammoth, smell the horn of a woolly rhinoceros and see the faithful reproductions of primitive cave paintings that decorate the walls and ceilings. One of our rooms also showcases mammoth ivory carvings made by the most accomplished artisans from all over the world. Finally, the Barcelona Mammoth Museum also offers a variety of extra services, including specialist technical services for the scale reconstruction of Ice Age animals, a children’s club for budding paleontologists and an interactive guided tour designed for school visits.Time Table: Every Day from 10.00am to 21.00pm

We've never seen a woolly mammoth (or a sabre toothed tiger, cave bear or woolly rhino) so we really enjoyed this little museum in a beautiful old building. A baby mammoth sits out the front, and there is the mummified baby mammoth inside - so...More

I am so glad my boyfriend and I found this!! What a gem of a place! It was fascinating, yes it's a small museum but the quality of the specimens shown is amazing! A must see! This museum deserves much more publicity!

Small museum but I enjoyed it. Some of the tusks on display looks man-made and hand painted, but the main mammoth skeleton was cool.

This museum was surprisingly good. Due to its size I thought it would prove to be a slapdash effort designed to rake in tourist dollars, but this is clearly a labor of love. Yes, it's small, as others have pointed out. But it's also high...More

It takes about 15-30 mins to explore the museum and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The entrance fee is a little bit too expensive but it's a thing to do in a rainy day.

I was glad to learn that there was a mammoth museum in Barcelona and you're greeted with a massive model of one upon arrival. But the excitement ended there. The place is tiny, dusty and smelly. My eldest daughter liked seeing the models and few...More
