“excellent museum to get to know better the history of the city”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

I highly recommend the roman-era exhibits, mainly the mosaic and a metal glass showing the route of the Via Augusta, it covers from the pre-history up to modern times

“City museum”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Visit on Sunday when it is quiet. Well set out with easy to find information which gives context to what you are looking at as you walk around the Old Town. Fill your water bottle at the free cooler in the cloister.

“Brilliant - miss out the ground floor, don't take small children”
Reviewed May 31, 2007

This is a great source of understanding about what makes this town, and the region, tick. There is a powerful display about the civil war and Franco years on the top floor - it's worth going just for that alone. The displays are 'snappy' and quickfire -deep, but don't go on too much.

Ground floor has industrial machinery in a very boring display, unless turbines are your thang, and a VERY UPSETTING place where they did not so much bury as dry out the old monks, sitting up around the walls. I'm still having therapy about that one.
But if you go to Girona go to this museum, just don't ask about the dead monks and enjoy the rest.
