  • The museum offers a super interesting, and vast collection of curious artifacts. Religious sculptures, medieval artifacts, photography, games and dolls, newspapers, armory, and others. But the nicest thing about this museum was the workers, they are very knowledgeable, respectful, dedicated, and just nice in general. The whole visit was nicer because of them, it's worth visiting if you want to see a huge collection of relevant historical artifacts. I would recommend and I will visit again when I'm back in Barcelona.
  • A large museum spanning many floors with a vast selection of items renting from antiquity to basically the industrial age. There are guided as well audio tours available and I would recommend either of these as there is very little detail given for much in display, many with no plaques at all to even give a hint of what you are looking at our even the era from where it came.
