The museum is near the Port. The buildings that houses the Naval Museum were once the Royal Shipyard. It is obvious the total work that was done to restore the building, with excellent results. I think it is a valuable contribution of the Museum to...More

Beautiful building and display of a Galley ship, great museum to escape the crowds and heat ! Very convenient off las ramblas, the gardens are beautiful too!

The building is awesome - the architecture combining the new and old is quite superb. This is a tremendous exhibition space. The contents are not remarkable but certainly give a good maritime feel - a nice collection of shipping artifacts but not a huge amount....More

The maritime museum is often overlooked in favour of the Gaudi and other museums, but it is well worth a visit and reasonably priced. There are heaps of small boats and lots and lots of model ships, but the highlight is undoubtedly the full-scale replica...More

I’m not generally a fan of repro’s, but this one is so huge and so over the top that it really needs to be seen.

It was raining and I love boats, so we had a fabulous couple of hours here before eating at the museum restaurant. The reproduction of a 16th century galley was very interesting, and you learned quite a bit about the life of slaves on board.

This is a museum about shipping and worth a visit just to see the Spanish galleon on display (replica of course). There are also various ships with their sailing histories attached. The building is just across the road from the Columbus monument, so it is...More

The museum building is really amazing and definitely worth seeing. If you want some calm and peace after experiencing La Rambla, this museum is a good option. The collection is a bit limited but truly focused on ships and sailing.

Barcelona's maritime museum has a small but interesting collection that tells the story of the city. A good place to spend an afternoon. Admission is free on Sunday afternoons.

Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

Yes, you can visit the restaurant without paying the museum. It's not the exact same place (restaurant is next to the museum building). The courtyard is definitely worth visiting. I have not eaten there (only has some... More
