245 reviews
Admission tickets for Park Güell, one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions, typically sell out quickly; however, by buying tickets online in advance, you can guarantee entry, avoid the long lines, and save time on the day. Instead of queueing in the heat, explore Park Güell—including the Dragon Staircase, Hypostyle Room, and more—at your own pace.

Definitely recommend this museum if you want to learn more about Catalonia. Was 6 euros and you can easily spend a couple hours here. You follow the history of the region chronologically, and the exhibits are also kid friendly and equally interesting for adults! Most information is in Catalan, Spanish and English, however some of the information about specific artefacts was not in English (but I didn't mind this, you still get the idea). Really informative, and you can end by checking you the beautiful view of the harbor from the roof! You don't need to eat at the restaurant to see it.

This museum covers a lot of Catalonian history. It was interesting and quite informative. There were actually "touch and feel" exhibits which kids might like--my twenty something liked them, too. I thought this was the one with the underground city, but that history museum is in the Gothic Quarter. I enjoyed both of the history museums.

I found the upper floor of the museum particulary interesting as it dealt with the making of modern Barcelona, including the dreadful Civil War where Franco's suppression of Catalunya is within living memory and doubtless fuelling the independence movement. The cafe terrace on the roof is good and you can view some spectacularly vulger yachts in the harbour. Not crowded. It is located at the bottom of Las Ramblas and is free on the first Sunday of the month,
