  • We were here about 20 years ago and loved it again. This time with kids 11 and 13, they enjoyed it as well. The Titanic expo was very expensive and not worth it, interesting but to expensive for what ...  more »
  • So close to the end of Las Rambles, yet so under-utilised on the day we visited. This is a spacious and well laid out museum, with a section that is animated about the development of the fleet and shi...  more »
  • If you like anything to do with the sea or ships then this is a must if you are in Barcelona. We spent over 2 hours but could have stayed longer. Good value for the entrance fee.  more »

  • Another good surprise in Barcelona. It's a small museum, but it's nice to spend a hour and visit the collection - including a real caravel. Also, I was lucky when I went there because I visited a temporary exhibition about Russian art.
  • If you like maritime and sea culture, the place is worth a visit. Many boats and ship models are to be observed and learned about, and atmosphere at the entrance resembles walking on a deck of a ship with crackling wooden floors and waves played. A joy to a boat-lover, might be a bore if you are no too thrilled about viewing still boats.
  • 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.
  • Worth a stop. Some good maritime history there and some info on the crazy row boat racing that I had not heard of
  • Not on the tourist trail, and all the better for that. The ship yard of boats, particularly the reconstructed Mediterranean sailing ship and the space itself, is worth it (kids free!). Could have had more exposition on boat construction, but worth visiting.
