Top ways to experience Museo Egipci de Barcelona and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there
  • Passeig de Gràcia • 6 min walk
  • Girona • 7 min walk

Fascinating.  Very rare artefacts on display.  Egyptian civilisation was clearly way ahead of its time. The exhibits are beautifully arranged. The descriptions include an English translation. The street entrance is easy to miss, but it's not far off Passeig Gracia and most conveniently it was open until 7.30 pm , but do check their website as no doubt winter opening times will prevail soon.

A nice but small museum. For 12 euro its about what you'd expect to pay, but in truth you'll only need an hour in here. The king tut exhibit has no English translations. I didn't see any toilets.

For a museum with such a good reputation (at least so it seems online), I was surprised by the rather small size of it. The next surprise was the amount of time I end up spending in that small museum. I don't often read a lot of the descriptions in a museum (tending to get bored easily), but in this case I kept reading: for me it was the perfect middleground between too general and too detail-oriented.

Nice little place with permanent collection. We were told that the entrance is free of charge which is not completely true. I attach a photo with categories of people for whom the entrance is free of charge and also those who need to pay and what are the charges. Irregardless of the price, this little museum is a worth visiting place.

While this is a small museum, (you can see it all in 30 minutes to an hour), the price is higher than other local museums. This makes it a poor value. For example a trip to the National Museum of Catalunya cost 8 € and we spent hours upon hours there. Compared to other national museums in the world that is a small one. This Egyptian museum cost 22€ to enter. It had some very interesting items and reproductions, it is not plentiful enough to warrant the price. Particularly for students/children. This museum needs to grow and add something more substantial to the experience or do something more engaging.

For those of you who have been to the big Museums, the Met, Cairo, Berlin, London, Brooklyn and understand their pull in getting quality pieces, this little museum really does have some unusual quality pieces for a private collection. The Ramses II Statue is quite unique in that we are not aware of seeing one in which he has a smile (smirk) which is quite rare in Egyptian Carvings. It is definitely worth your time for an hour or two if you enjoy Egyptian Art and history to stop in an take a look. If your not into Egyptian history wait until you get to one of the big cities and see a larger museum to see a little bit of everything.

The museum has more than 2000 square meters of gallery space, with about a thousand exhibits. These include mummies, sarcophagi, jewelry, and amulets. The museum has one of Europe's largest private collections of Egyptian art.

The Clos Archaeological Foundation is the owner of the museum and this was founded in 1993 by Jordi Clos, who was passionate about Egyptian art and started his private collection.
The Foundation does research and publishes works about Egypt. It is actively involved in education about Egyptian art and life and also has a travel agency to promote travel to Egypt.

As others have said, the entrance fee is surprisingly high. That is the only thing wrong with this museum, that it is not accessible to those who cannot pay the entrance fee.

This is a smaller museum (2-3 floors) but has a nice collection and exhibit space and is well worth a visit. Depending on your familiarity with Egyptian artifacts, allow 1-2 hours for viewing. When I visited, they had a wonderful jewelry exhibit, which was very well done. I would definitely go back.

It's quite a small museum. We were done in 30 minutes of looking around and taking pictures. We didn't read much of the information. The collection is a reasonable quality with some good looking pieces. It's worth visiting if you get a combined ticket with another attraction but I'm not sure it's worth the entrance fee alone
