Museu d'Història de Catalunya reviews
Definitely recommend this museum if you want to learn more about Catalonia. Was 6 euros and you can easily spend a couple hours here. You follow the history of the region chronologically, and the... more »
Do go. Do learn and be educated about not only Catalunya but also the development of humanity. This is a superbly curated museum with very helpful staff. more »
This is actually an excellent museum. €6 for entry to the permanent exhibits. Tells you the Catalonia story from the stone age to the modern era. It has nice exhibits and is well laid out. Ease of locker rooms and toilets. Some interactive displays which will entertain kids and adults alike. Felt I understand Catalan and Barcelona better now. I would have given 5 stars if the museum is catered for foreign tourists. Not everyone can free read Catalan or Spanish. Only 50% of descriptions have English. Would be nice to have some seats in the display area. I spent 2 hours here and i wish that I could sit and look at the displays. Overall very worth the while going just like the Barcelona historical museum which focus mainly on the Roman era ruins.
Certainly deserves a five star - what a brilliant museum if you are interested in the history of Catalonia. Lots of little interactive exhibits to explore, English explainations throughout. There's also an interesting temporary exhibition showing at the moment (August) about dress making and design through time. Brilliant tiny gallery space for children to interact. Absolutely loved it. Up stairs on the top floor there's a terrace with fantastic views, restaurant is a bit on the expensive side for me, but I would recommend the view on it's own!
