  • An excellent collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts and excellent guided tours around the tables. A lot of out of the ordinary, different objects, which gave a slightly different, and the new image of the ancient culture of Egypt.

  • This museum is ideal for those that feel a special predilection for the art Egyptian, as well as by the history of the Pharaohs. It has two types of exhibition, a fixed, which explains life in the ancient Egypt, and another variable, which can be from an exhibition about the young Tutankhamun or the myths of Osiris.

  • Small, well cared for this Egyptian Museum it doesn't really offer much to see but something interesting there. Many things were reproductions like the Rosetta Stone, and more.

  • 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
