I visited during the late afternoon and pretty much had the place to myself. I came looking for information on bandits, pirates and the Guerra dels Segadors and I wasn't disappointed! There were many other treasures in the museum besides and I'd go back with...More

Man-oh-man was this place packed with history! I learned a ton from 5000 BCE to nearly the present. The museum is well-curated and worth a visit. Nice roof-top bar, too, and close to Barcalonetta Beach. Don't confuse this place with the Barcelona history museum, which...More

We pre-purchased tickets for 6.50 euros but there is no need as few people were around. It complimented much of what we had been told by guides and locals about the proud history and fierce independence desire of Catalonians. English was included in most descriptions...More

Great value for the money. Some of the pieces in the museum are interactive. You can use your own phone as audio guide with wifi provided on place. One small minus - some parts are only in Catalan and Spanish I wish we had more...More

I went on a Sunday morning - it was nice and quiet, with no crowds at all. I loved the peace as I could take me time to read the explanation of almost every exhibit!
