Nice Museum In Tossa de Mar....
Jul 2019 • Couples
On our first visit to Tossa de Mar my wife and I visited the Municipal Museum at the Castillo de Tossa de Mar on a drizzling and overcast day....

We were both impressed with the artwork and statues that were displayed there. The museum's focus was on art and also history. But it was the art and sculptures that really intrigued us both. In fact this museum even had two paintings by Marc Chagall....A famous artist that most people have heard of.

We would both recommend the Municipal Museum in Tossa de Mar to anyone who visits this beautiful resort town on the Spanish Mediterranean....

Roman remains and an art gallery
Jun 2019 • Couples
Climbed up the hill to the town museum, where there are finds from the Roman villa. There is also a small art gallery, with some paintings by local artists. Several tourist shops nearby, and great view over to Tossa main town.

Historical museum in the town
May 2018 • Solo
The Municipal Museum is the main museum located in the Vila Vella (old town) in the center, between the beach and the Castle, in Tossa de Mar, one of the most beautiful towns in the well-known Costa Brava, in Girona region, in Catalonia.
In the museum, you can learn the history of this fisher town, see some paints of famous painters, who lived or come here in the past and some objects related with the town. It is not a main turistical point in the town (beaches, the castle, the old town), but it you have a time, it is a very goos place to do a different visit and learn about the real town, not the turistical town.

Definitely Worth a Visit if You're in Tossa
Nov 2017 • Couples
A small museum but they used their space to best advantage. There was a variety of paintings, pencil sketches, sculptures, and glassware, as well as some artefacts and mosaic pieces from the Roman era. The paintings were all very nicely framed too.

A peaceful way to spend a couple of hours and well worth the €3 admission price.

Intersting

Cheap to enter at just 3 euros per head. There is an absence of English translation on some of the exhibits which is annoying. They say it takes 1.5 hours to get around but with just half a dozen small rooms and limited items it actually only took us 35 mins. Overall interesting and worth the entry fee.

Worth a visit to the Municipal Museum
Jul 2017 • Family
Its only 3 Euro's to visit this museum. The staff are not at all welcoming, a friendly "hola" or "hello" wouldnt go amiss. Very disappointing in that respect. That said, there is lots to see from early roman influence up to modern artist.. Very peaceful. I went in mid july and had the museum to myself for the hour or so that I was in there. Dont let the staff at the entrance put you off! There is no description of the exhibits in English or any other language apart from Catalan and Spanish but they do give you a brief leaflet.

The entrance fee was very cheap. The lady at the desk was extremely miserable. No translations at all. Surprising as there are many nationalities who visit this area.

Nice spot

Reasonably priced to enter- 3 euro and houses art and items from the roman ruins. Considering it's all we paid to go into it was worth it.

Sep 2016 • Couples
This is a pretty museum within the castle wall at the top of Vila Vella. Very reasonable entrance fee. Well laid out. Interesting Roman pieces but the main thing for me were the paintings - Modern art put together since it openen in 1935.
ARCHAELOGY: x2 basement rooms.
CERAMIC & GLASS: x1 room ground floor
PERMANANT PAINTINGS multi upper floors
Lovely works by Hugue, Clara, Monjo, Rebull, Sunyer and a couple of Chagall and Masson
Well worth a visit
