CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS!!!
Sep 2019
What a disappointment to find this important institution completely closed for who knows how many years, since it is one of the principal reasons to come to Tarragona!

Great, inexpensive stop

If you don't have any interest in history then this will seem like a waste of time and just an old building made of stone.
But if you like Roman history or have any knowledge of the Spanish Civil War then this is a good place to visit.
There are some nice bars and cafes in the area for those who want to sit it out.
It's inexpensive and has some interesting history. The view from the top is sensational.

Very well presented artefacts

Google maps sent us to the wrong place - it is now situated on the water's edge at the port. Lots of history given, in several languages. Easy to follow the history of Tarragona chronologically. Some fabulous remains.

Interesting buildings and fantastic views
Sep 2018 • Family
Even my 18 year old son whose not really into history enjoyed our trip round this combination of museum and Roman remains. The exhibits were intersting and some beautiful statues. Ensure you go up the stairs where you can especially in the old tower, the views are absolutely stunning, worth the entrance fee just for that. if you are lucky you will like us see one of the local human tower teams training in a building close by.

The best, the location. Inside, many archeological items of the Roman Tarragona, their interest is aboslutely modest

nice, but not spectacular

there are some nice pieces, but as a whole the museum is nothing spectacular. I specially liked the Medusa mosaic. but I wonder if this is really all and the best they found on the Roman sites here around . or if it all went to Madrid or Barcelona...

This is a very interesting attraction. More than just a museum, this place has many pathways that lead in different directions which enhance the feeling of exploring this ancient site. Up top you will have an excellent view of the surrounding area.

A Museum With A View
Oct 2017 • Couples
A fab Museum, the view out of the top corner window near the anchor is great, don't miss it. Quite an in depth museum. Roman sculptures, mosaics, set over several floors. Museum is definitely for the History Buffs, it is more of a traditional museum, well worth the 4.50 euros.

Well put together homage to old Tarraco
Nov 2017 • Couples
Tuesday was “free day” so we got double the value! Well put together exhibits, some really stunning (tessera) and artifacts taking you way back into BC. Rated amongst the best of its type in Spain. If you like your history it’s worth the effort. Tarragona generally exceeded our expectations and the museum was one of the reasons why.

Pues fenomenal - superb museum and superb staff at the MNAT
Oct 2017 • Solo
The 4.50 entrance also includes entrance to the wonderful Necropolis (left this until the following week as it's on the other side of town )so keep the ticket in a safe place.
I believe this museum is due to close in February/March 2018 for renovations so I would urge you to visit if staying nearby.
I started on the top floor to see the breathtaking 'Fish Mosaic' -47 forms of marine life represented . Octopus ...lobster....keep counting. Look out for the beautiful bronze of 'El Negret' and the collection of objects from the Vila of Els Munts said to belong to Emperor Adria- funeral glass here to die for....
Don't miss the view from the huge picture window on the 1st Floor near the amphoras nor the mosaic of the Medusa with such tiny tiles.
The film presentation (in a number of languages) in the lovely theatre on the ground floor gives a fascinating account of Tarragona's history . Wonderful Roman coinage and sculpture on this floor as well.
Thanks to staff members Mar and Jacob who answered a lot of questions I had about the museum and its wonderful collection.
