Great overview of the history of the province. It will give you a better understanding of the region, from prehistoric times till 21st century. All information is in Catalan, Castillian (Spanish) and English.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

It is part of the redeveloped waterfront area of Barcelona. The exhibits are very interesting and inforative, with English labelling. We wish that we had more time there, (it was Sunday and the museum closed early.).

“Top Museum, Don't Miss It”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We discovered this museum too late to do it justice, we only had 2 hours to spare before flying out of Spain, and it would have been worthwhile to spend at least 1/2 day here, or even more if you can afford it. Far better than the city museum behind the cathedral, interesting as Roman ruins are, we've seen them all over from Rome to Scotland.
The museum provides an excellent guide to the history of Catalunya and Barcelona, as its name says, and does so with interesting materials, charts, artifacts, documents, guides (in Catalan, Castillian and English).
