One of the best ways to get to know any city is to explore its history and great artistic expressions. To a large extent, this task can only be done by visiting the various theme museums throughout the city, since each of them gives us an insight into a particular aspect of local culture. Barcelona has a remarkable number of these museums, so we offer you an enriching journey through the most representative ones in the city.
We begin our tour in a museum dedicated to spreading knowledge about the remote past of Barcelona. The Barcelona City History Museum (El Museo de Historia de Barcelona) is not a single enclosed space but is divided into several branches. The most important of which can be found in Bajada de la Librería Street, in the heart of the city. Its premises are full of genuine archaeological treasures excavated in Barcelona itself, belonging to the Necropolis and Roman times. The museum charges different rates depending on the exhibition you wish to visit.
