    We found the entrance a little hard to find, but got there in the end. This museum is bigger than you think and has a lot to offer. Unlike a lot of the tourist sites around the city, there were no crowds here at all. We found it very interesting and well worth the price. We spent 2 hours here and could have spent a little more, but were a little pressed for time so ended up rushing through at the end. Although we visited in mid-April, the top floor was very hot so you may want to bring a small fan if you do not like the heat. I am glad we made the time to come here and do recommend it if your schedule allows.

    There is a lot to see over several floors. The entry price of 6 euros is very good value for money. The main displays are all in English but some of the smaller ones are only in Spanish / Catalan. One of the better museums that we saw in Barcelona. I would recommend it

    Very nice view. Went by accident, planned to see Parc Guell and this was a close bus stop. Very difficult to find anything without mobile internet:). In the end found Parc Guell. Come early because police won't let people to stay later

    A nice but small museum. For 12 euro its about what you'd expect to pay, but in truth you'll only need an hour in here. The king tut exhibit has no English translations. I didn't see any toilets.

    The "Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya", MAC is an archaeological museum that exposes the most important archaeological collection of Catalonia, focusing on prehistoric times and ancient history. It has five branches, in different places, and the one in Barcelona, MAC Barcelona, covers an area of 4,000 square meters and it is structured into five chronological spaces: prehistory, protohistory, the Greek and Phoenician colonisations, the Roman Empire. and the Visigoths, marking the start of the medieval period.
    There are no exceptional archaeological finds, but hose present are very well valorized.
    Fixed explanations mainly in Catalan, a few in Spanish and English.
    There are also several interesting multimedia and virtual reality points.

    Avant-garde comics by young women was one of the temporary exhibitions underway. Nine authors feature, including Roberta Vázquez, Bàrbara Alca and Nadia Hafid.

    They deal through the medium of comics with subjects and themes particularly affecting young people such as economic uncertainty and their relationship with technology.

    All in an impressive building, part of which constitutes a mighty former alms house.

    This was located very close to our hotel, so we stopped in to check it out. Although there is certainly an impressive array of perfumes and cosmetics inside, they are all things that are for sale...more like a store than a museum.

    When passing were delighted to see there was a free concert at 6pm. Returned for it, in a fabulous Gothic building.

    It was constructed in the 16th century by Bartomeu Roig for the Tertiary Sisters of the Dominicans and is a fabulous legacy to be still extant, and in use.

    A string quartet performed a number of compositions, modern and atonal in form. While by no means a favourite music, it was atmospheric in the grand vaulted space.
