For history and archeology buffs, this is amazing. Information is available in Catalan, Spanish and English. The Roman ruins of tarragon a are the most extensive of any city in Spain.

Museum is built into the Roman ruins and lets you explore various parts. Definitely a must see if you are in town and a ticket here gets you into a few other sites.

Museum is ok, doesn't take to long to go round. Only thing that annoyed me was the staff sat on the floor levels followed u round watching you like u were going to rob the place. Quite intimidating really!
