Barcelona's city Museum

Museu d'Història de la Ciutat de Barcelona.

The most important to visit is its underground exposition where reminds of the old " Augusta Barcino" are exposed.

 

You will see here mosaics, wall paintings, graves and a pool, excavated remains of ancient structures, documents, engravings, etc.

 

>Take advantage of being in the area to visit Barcelona Cathedral, which is just a short walk away. One of the most important and symbolic monuments in Barcelona.

I lived in Barcelona 9 months and this was by far the best place to see. If you want to understand the Roman influence on the city do the Audio tour here. It's small and not very organized true, but once you make your way down the elevator you won't be disappointed. Free every first Sunday unless they change their minds. I wouldn't trust any Spaniard to be open promptly on a Monday or after a Holiday.

@Susan
Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Green Line
Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała

  2. Museum - Irina (30 Jul 2011 - 12:00)

    Barcelona is the most beautiful city of Spain. There are many different and cognitive museums. I liked a lot of museums,for example: “The mammoth museum of Barcelona”. There is a varied collection of prehistoric animal skeletons and other remains of the Ice Age. Visitors can touch the teeth and tusk of a mammoth and to see the cave paintings that decorate the walls and ceilings. Also there are a lot of great products from mammoth ivory.

  3. none of the msueums are open on Mondays in Barcelona - nancy Grandquist Fields (15 Jun 2011 - 20:15)

    none of the msueums are open on Mondays in Barcelona contrary to what the printed information may say.

  4. closed on Monday - RZ (10 Jun 2011 - 12:15)

    This museum is NOT open on Monday, contrary to what is stated on the website. Someone should correct this mistake.

  5. Libre? - Geroge (11 Mar 2011 - 14:45)

    Is it true this museum is free for a short period on Sundays? I read that it is free on the first Sunday of the month, but I believe the sign out front says that for five hours after its normally listed closing time on Sundays there is admittance. There was a line so I did not get the opportunity to ask, but I definitely do not want to leave without seeing this museum!

  6. Translation - Britt (9 Mar 2011 - 09:00)

    I am doing a project on Spain for my Geography project and I cannot unerstand what the website is saying. Is there any way to translate? When ever I go on the website, Google asks if I want them to translate it, but whenever I let them try, it doesn't work.

  7. cost - Chuck James (7 Apr 2009 - 21:21)

    How much does it cost to visit this wonderful museum?

  8. this is cool - bob (i'm smart) (25 Nov 2008 - 18:00)

    this is a cool museum!!!

  9. roman remains barcelona - Jo Hallett (24 Nov 2008 - 19:00)

    This is a brilliant exhibition. It gives a vivid flavour of life in the old roman city of Barcino. It portrays a civilisation with central government, water and sanitation, leisure facilities, food manufacture, wine-making and much else. It is very extensive and superbly presented. visitors walk along glass walkways over the remains, listening to descriptions in their own language.

    DON'T MISS THIS!

  10. hi - ho (27 Nov 2006 - 21:35)
