  • Spend the night at the Museum: directed to children / as of 6 to 11 years. A very recommended, very educational and affordable experience economically. It is very well organized and children spend it big. My child of 6 years and a friend of 10 years enjoyed a lot with them activities that proposed and sleeping between sarcophagi and mummies.

  • Very nice for this private museum presenting numerous Egyptian pieces (of unknown origin). Admission € 11 (I see that gnash their teeth), but for my part, it's worth. Here also, proficiency in Spanish or catalan is useful, 1 floor on 3 has comments in English. A regret? There never indications on the place from parts, which is frustrating. Do however.

  • Nice and interesting museum. The temporary exhibitions are extraordinary and very updated. Permanent collection shows a classic work-of-art exhibit, it's interesting by itself because represents a history of Museology.
  • A treasure trove! So unassuming from the street, with so much to discover inside. Perhaps not what you go looking for in Barcelona but this is worth the visit.
  • Small museum that's enjoyable for those who have never been to Egypt and don't know much about the ancient times.
  • I really liked this small and manageable museum. Quite educational and enjoyable.
  • interesting. worth a visit if you have time or on a rainy day
