For anyone who already takes an interest in Catalonia's history, from medieval times to its industrial boom, and more recent times, or whether you have even the slightest curiosity, this museum is absolutely worth visiting. The museum is broken up into different sections of history, making it very easy to navigate around.
For some, the collections may be overwhelming, but whether you have time or not, there is no denying that there is plenty to see and something interesting for everybody.
The large number of physical exhibits is a great credit to the museum, bringing alive the region's history, and adding something extra from just reading the text that accompanies each section.
The exhibits have English translations, in addition to Spanish and Catalan.
It is very inexpensive to visit, and easy to get to on the metro (Barceloneta station).
The museum also has a great shop, with a selection of books and other items.
After finishing on the top floor, it's worth walking through the restaurant outside onto the terrace, which offers stunning views of the docklands in Barcelona. It's absolutely stunning, and a good opportunity for some photos.
