Ever wonder about ancient Egyptians and how they lived, what they wore, what they used from day to day or more about mummies? This is the place to visit! I thought I knew a lot about ancient Egypt, well, I learned a lot more about them in this Museum! They have a lot of goodies in their museum store, from... More

Well laid out collection of Egyptian artefacts properly interpreted and accessible (to those of us who read neither Spanish or Catalonian). One curator (?) was slightly 'officious' - 'hovering' perhaps rather excessively (at our age I don't know what he imagined we might be going to get up to), but then with collections so valuable, I suppose they can't take...

It seems small at first but it has a great collection; it took us almost 2 hours to see everything. Very interesting. We loved it.

This museum kept us busy for hours. Great place, plenty of facts. This museum seems to know what they are talking about.

This is a small Egyptian museum but which has a good collection of objects. It is spread out over two floors with temporary exhibits. The objects are arranged thematically; Pharaoh, Gods, etc. There are some very good objects in the collection, in particular some early mace heads. Artefacts date from early Naqadan to Faiyum portraits Entrance is included with the... More

Surprising and impressive collection of Egyptian antiquities in the heart of the most fashionable area of Barcelona. Beautiful modern building housing artifacts from jewelry to mummies. Interesting and fascinating exhibit of King Tuts tomb discovery. Very well presented and explained.

We went because the hotel gave us free tickets. It's not a must see because almost everything is photographs of artifacts. Can see it on the Internet. But if you have plenty of time in Barcelona and have seen all the other sights, then go see it. Otherwise skip it.

Tickets were free as we had booked our stay at the Derby Hotel chain Astoria hotel, direct. Usual price would have been 11 euros each for an adult. Museum was very interesting - the temporary exhibit was Tutankhamen, but the info boards were only in Spanish so feel we missed out on the true quality of the exhibits but still... More

Anyone interested in egyptology will love this museum. It has many unique items that no other museum have, such as a bead dress. Three floors; two were part of the permanent exhibition, with the lowest floor being the temporary exhibition. When I visited there was a great photo exhibit on Howard Carters discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb. One tiny problem, whilst... More

If you want to experience the Egyptian collection of Cairo then go there , if you want to experience the Egyptian chaos and strife then go there. If you want to see a world class private collection of high quality Egyptian antiquities then this is the museum for you. Three floors of beautifully displayed artifacts indicating a very important period... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
