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

Marvelous location in a charming narrow street right in the middle of the old town, spacious museum, interesting excursion, impressive all in all. Definitely worth visiting!

The scheduled opening times: 10-21h. When we (my son, my nephew and me) arrived on 11 of february 2016, it was 10:55. It was closed! At the door, sticked at it from the inner part, a hand-written paper: "Abrimos en media hora". "Will open in...More

A cheap, small museum with no queues, bones you can touch, a mammoth and a sabre tooth tiger (among other attractions). A nice quick look around that was fun for my 12 year old daughter and myself. It's near other attractions so no need to...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
