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.

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

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.
