I just happened to spot the ornate chariot and the rider from a distance and followed my vision to reach this park full of various sculptures. It was a nice walk around. There were children playing around . Can be good on a day with good weather.

Traveling with kids (7 & 9) requires us to balance culture, shopping, beach and parks. The history museum was one place we all enjoyed. Many of the displays were interactive, which made it much more interesting for the kids. I literally could not tear them away from a water mill and irrigation project at the Moorish section. For the adults there was much to see and learn. Absolutely loved it.

The museum provides an excellent history of the Catalan region. We found the ancient history a little tiring because there is so much to describe, but I really enjoyed the exhibits and interactive displays.
The price is 4 euro or 2 euro with a coupon, so how much do you need to learn to get your money's worth?

This museum is located right by the port area in an old warehouse, reminiscent of the Albert Dock in Liverpool. For 'seniors' admission is free. There is a café on the top floor and loos on the 4 floors.
We found a well presented walk through Catalan history from prehistoric times to the present day. One area focused on the Civil War with plenty of illustrations and artifacts.
The museum gives a good background into why the people of Catalonia see themselves as 'important' in independence terms.
Don't take our word for it - go see it!
