Staff very helpful. Lots of excellent free information in English and other languages. Several floors of good exhibits, some fantastic individual items and fantastic mosaics. Well worth the two hours spent there.

“amazing mosaics, sculptures and history revisited”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a nice compact museum spread over three floors, giving a peak into the development of various art forms of the Roman times. It has a unique small Romantic museum within it, well worth a visit! I was reminded of the sculptures of Khajuraho, India. The mosaic and sculptures are well preserved and show the advanced state of artistic mindsets in that era. The staff are helpful. The small audiovisual film showing the history of Tarragona of that period is informative and crisp. It lasts 12 minutes and can be seen in the basement auditorium for free. However, you have to buy a separate entrance ticket as this museum is not covered in the all museums s ticket.

“history at hand”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

this museum reflects the city history from Roman times with a projection room showing a short film depicting the creation of old Tarraco (as it was originally called). it bears three floors of statues, coins, jewelry, mosaics, columns, etc. on top of this choose a Tuesday to pay a call as it's free admittance on this day

“Beautiful mosaics”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Small musem but well worth a visit for the beautiful mosaics and also it is placed in a lovely town square. The musem has stunning view out of some of the windows over the amphiteatre and bay of Tarangona.
