We intended to have a look on Sunday morning but noticed there was free entry at 15.00. We were glad we hadn’t paid as it’s a pretty average archaeological museum. There isn’t much to see, the descriptions are poor and there are no English translations...More

Near to the Estació De França, the Museu d’Historia is a wonderful exhibition of discovered ancient architecture. Protected from the elements a section of ancient Barcelona is visible. 6 euros to enter is fair. Definately worth a visit

If you are interested in archeology, this is a great place. You see a large area of excavation from early Roman times.

Visited this museum on a Sunday afternoon and entrance was free. It was great to explore under the city to get an idea of what Barcelona was in Roman times and later

The first floor of this museum is ok but once you go down into the subterranean level that's where the magic takes place. We were blown away with the ruins. You really can visualize the way of live hundreds of years ago.

I confess I had no idea there were such extensive Roman ruins in Barcelona -- and I I didn't expect there to be such terrific displays. I thought they did an excellent job with English signage and enjoyed the audio guide. This is a "MUST"...More

A very interesting, though fairly small, museum. Dedicated to the history of the city since pre history, it has an imoressive underground which is part of the olde city since roman times. Free from 15h on Sundays.

We spent quite a bit of time here as there is so much information on the history of the origin of Barcelona. Interesting tour of the roman ruins with a lot of information.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
