We visited the museum on a rainy day, and it provided a welcome break from the rain. The large indoor space is interesting in itself and provides plenty to see. The museum has a large variety of models and large bits to look at and read about. The centre piece is the large replica ship. Worth a few hours to... More

You can wander around large parts of this museum without paying to see the collection. The building is a famous medieval shipyard and has been beautifully restored. The restaurant and cafe are in a charming setting, one of the most relaxing and lovely corners in Barcelona. Admission is free after 3pm on Sundays, the collection is worth visiting, the highlight...

The museum was in the former shipyards of Drasannes. The construction of the shipyards was Spanish naval supremacy throughout the Mediterranean expansion. Inside, we saw many big exhibits. each of them carried one story. Wonderful design! The highlight of the maritime museum was the vessels, esp.the famous reproduction of a galley from the 16th Century: the 60-meter-long royal galley Admirals... More

The museum has an attractive presentation in an historic covered shipyard by the harbor. It is next to the Columbus monument at the end of La Rambla. Unlike many maritime museums, museums, it does not have crowds of artifacts and ship models. The exhibits tend to be large models widely spaced and big open areas. There was even a full-sized...

This is a lovely small museum that is easy to pass by unless a person searches it out. In addition to the wonderful permanent exhibit - well worth the visit, there are rotating exhibits upstairs. We happened upon an exhibit of underwater painting, which was incredible. This is a wonderful museum for both adults and children - easy to go... More

The Maritime Museum was excellent, and a real added bonus during our stay in Barcelona. It didn't appear in any guide book.. unless it was only a sentence easily missed! The admission was very reasonable, €5 for adults and I think children went free. Students and elderly visitors went for half price. Admission also covered a small ship in the... More

The museum is located in a great building near the port and contains a small number of maritime related displays and a some full size vessels. Cheap entry and free for under 18s. They are still expanding and changing a number of things but that didn't detract from what was on display. Could do most of this in a 30min... More

The museum is a work in progress but well worth the visit. At 10 euros for 2 adults and a 13 yo it was very reasonable. The scale of the place is incredible - set in a building where ships were built dating to the 1200s. High quality exhibits. A bit of hands on for kids? The path through is... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
