  • Like a few Brits, I only knew about this place from a recent programme on BBC about Barcelona's hidden treasures. I was still one of the only tourists there; the staff were in the majority. It is 4 Eu...  more »
  • Couple, 50+. Considering all these items, statues, reliefs, paintings etc were all collected by one man, there are a staggering number of exhibits. A quieter than usual museum it's worth a visit if yo...  more »
  • What a delight this museum is! Tucked away beside the old cathedral, it's very easy to miss. As you enter, it's a bit 'museum-y' with a series of Roman artefacts followed by medaeival stuff as you ven...  more »

  • This magnificent gem is under appreciated! It has an outstanding collection comprised of an obsessive collector's years of amassing extraordinary pieces from tin toys to pipes to memento memoria to ceramics to sculptures to religious memorabilia and the list goes on! Very diverse, immaculately presented, an oasis of calm in the midst of this gorgeous tourist Mecca! Inexpensive. Don't miss the crypt!
  • Great! Really calm and interesting things to see. The cosy room on the 2nd floor is wonderful as well as the library roof top.
  • Absolutely insane collection! If you're visiting Barcelona, and have time for a single museum, this is the one! Staff is very informative. The tickets are valid for multiple entries + the museum is completely empty! And the garden/atrium is a bonus. Easily my favorite place in the city!
  • Beautiful museum. I was here for an event on poetry and this place was the perfect venue for it.
  • A very nice and interesting museum in which you can see a very beautiful collection of nearly everything.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
