The museum was totally worth it. If you would like to better understand why Catalonians believe they do today, than this is a must see. It took me about two hours to view the entire exhibit, and I learned a lot about the Catalonian history...More

This is a small exhibition and not quite what I expected but it was very interesting. It’s mainly a shop with lovely Catalan arts and craft pieces and screens giving historical accounts of the Catalan people and early Homanids that lived here thousands of years...More

General history museum, good for children as well. Most of the interesting pictures/maps are only in Spanish / Catalonia thus I was missing some parts of the story. In general its worth to go inside and a have a quick look.

Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in
