This is, in itself based in a beautiful building, additionally the exhibits are interesting and most especially the second floor which goes from pre-historic times until modern. The large display boards are in several languages including English, my criticism would be that the actual artifacts on display are mainly only labeled in Catalan so you loose what some really interesting...

A nice collection of artefacts from Megalithic times to recent times, set partly in an old church which is fabulous, the inner courtyard has lots of wonderful carvings. The displays were unfortunately only in Spanish, but I had a nice time in here. Worthwhile, better value if you use the Girona museum card to get a discount.

It was great to learn ancient history for Catalunya. Unearthed articles were displayed in the museum. Most of guidances were written in Spanish but I found some were in English. Comparing with national museum, the museum was more local color. I liked it very much.

I didn't make it into the Museu but I did the long walk following the red "Arqueologia" line on the tourist map and it was great (and free.) Like Pompeii you get a real sense of walking in the footsteps of the ghosts from eons before. Huge chunks of the city's old wall are just frozen in time exactly where... More

Was keen to see the Monastery Chapel which is ancient and atmospheric. Arrived at opening time (10.30) and did manage to see it for two minutes before the lights were turned off due to some Son et Lumiere thing. Visited the exhibition instead which is very interesting (tho' I agree about the Catalan texts), but have good museums where I... More

Really lovely, free to walk round, shame all the texts were in Catalan, had to use imagination. They could have put it in Spanish, at least.

The museum has some interesting exhibits covering the history of Girona and the surrounding region from the pre-Roman period onwards. It was particularly interesting to see the models of the town during the Roman period, and compare them with the current layout of the town, seeing how the latter developed from the Roman plan.
