A wonderful visit on a rainy Sunday. The main attraction is what is below the museum in a self guided walk of what was the Roman City beneath "the old city" of Barcelona. It puts some of the city into a historic perspective.

This museum has really good stuff in it and girona has a fascinating history. However the museum is disjointed and almost all the displays have extensive documentation in Spanish and Catalan but not English. There is a little book in French and English but the museum would be immeasurably improved by some joined up thinking. A sense that they are... More

We went on the first Sunday of the month so admission was free. The audio tour was not available at any price on that day, and our Spanish is poor so much of the upper floors were left to guess work. Nevertheless the place was fascinating, and the bottom levels with the archeological digs were explained in English and that... More

Made the effort to find this place by foot and wasnt dissappointed, if you like learning about the local history of the place you are visiting then this is for you. With children on a hot spanish day?? Probably not!

I highly recommend the roman-era exhibits, mainly the mosaic and a metal glass showing the route of the Via Augusta, it covers from the pre-history up to modern times

This is a great source of understanding about what makes this town, and the region, tick. There is a powerful display about the civil war and Franco years on the top floor - it's worth going just for that alone. The displays are 'snappy' and quickfire -deep, but don't go on too much. Ground floor has industrial machinery in a... More
