  • To work very very close if not I will take the you low morning noon coffee or even sometime to enjoy your daily menu. The menu is modern, sophisticated and classic at the same time. Very well presented and in their fair portions. Value for money hardly surmountable

  • Very close to Colon's statue in Barcelona this museum is located inside Les Drassanes, an authentic medieval age shipyard. Inside you can walk around many ships and expositions about maritime subjects. It is normally very quiet in contrast of nearby Les Rambles and the whole space is air conditioned. There is a nice restaurant with a terrace outside the museum.
  • The highlights are the building, which is the medieval shipyard of the Catalonian navy, and a life size replica of the 1571 flagship of the Holy League, which fought in the Battle of Lepanto. The rest of the museum was a little underwhelming, with mainly paintings and small models of ships. Recommended if you have more than 2 or 3 days in Barcelona, especially for military history buffs.
  • A simple but well done museum, with real boats, reproductions and animations. It's only 7€ and with the ticket you can visit an old boat in the harbour. Worth the price !
  • Great place to bring kids but has enough information to keep the adults entertained. Large collection of different types of ships and boats in a beautiful and historical building.
  • Interesting museum but somehow got a feeling of emptiness because of the way the ships and boats were put. It costs 7€ and reduced to 3,5€.
