  • I actually went to the Museum but had an exhibition of art galleries, therefore I had the pleasure of seeing paintings by Sorolla, Miró, Dali, it was nice to meet me with so much art. Then we moved to the gardens to take something. Very cute place.

  • This museum features the fabulous option of being free Sundays from, if I remember correctly, 3 pm. Therefore, I visited it that I'm not much of precisely maritime things but I love to visit museums and in addition had still in memory that amazing Museum of Stockholm "the Vasa Museum" where you can see this amazing Swedish war ship called Vasa. Then, after being in that Museum, I think that the comparison will always be difficult to overcome. Because not only the vasa I liked but everything else you had in that Museum. That when I visited it I didn't feel the same experience.

  • The Museum tells the story of the Spanish galley, which is exhibited in the Museum. Life on the galley are also still accompanied by media elements. In addition, even the history of the port in Barcelona, as well as some milestones in the Spanish maritime will be presented. All in all is missing the Museum but still the little extra. Similar museums in Amsterdam and Lisbon have to offer more in my opinion. The old shipyard, where the Museum is located, had more potential in my opinion.

  • Excellent Museum. Truly outstanding exhibits that need to be seen to be believed. The building alone is a masterpiece. We enjoyed the cafe and the courtyard garden. The gift shop lacked any thing in other languages. We would also liked to have found postcards or professional pictures of the very impressive exhibits, particularly the map and the galleon. But that was the only thing we would gave changed. And that would have made this 5 stars.
  • The Titanic Exhibition is worth the price....if it were free. Barcelona is great, don't get me wrong - but this had TOURIST TRAP written all over it but it was raining, we were next to it and we had time to kill
  • Great place. Super interesting topic and very modern presentation. It’s not all too long, but still a lot of information. Worth a visit!
  • Beautiful building with a few great exhibits. Not outstanding but still a good way to spend an afternoon if you have even a passing interest in naval history. Lot of interactive stuff for kids too.
  • As a major port city, Barcelona has an incredible maritime history. This large museum does a great job at showcasing it. There are plenty of English descriptions.
