This museum is on the marina and is fabulous. Right now, they have a complete display of the Knights Templar. We have been there countless times but mostly for a different reason. They have a fantastic bar and restaurant on the top with a view...More

If you have time, you must visit this museum. Really it's not so perfect museaum - but if you have time, you can go it. Price of tickets it's so cheep (in Barcelona price) - just go, see some historical facts.

I really loved this musuem. Only one of the floors were open due to renovation, but the price in was only €2. I'd have been happy to pay more considering the prices for other attractions. The displays were fantastic. Very well detailed and laid out....More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

I love listening to Sardanas , the typical Catalan, Folkloric dance. Can I buy any Cd in the Museum ? Does the museum have any special exhibition dedicated to such a marvelous dance ? Thanks

Is there an English translation along side the Spanish, or a book in English we could get? My husband speaks some Spanish but I do not. Thank you!

Yes all the texts are in English too. Do have pleasure of your visit in Barcelona.
Are there a lot of political references in the museum ?
