A lovely museum of artefacts from around the world. Well displayed and annotated in English, Spanish and Catalonian. Our intention was to go to the Picasso museum but on a rainy day the queue was still long, so we went in here instead. Warm, dry,...More

This was a very basic museum and the staff was super rude like we were a bother. It was free on the day we visited otherwise I would have rated it lower. It is all non-europeon pieces and not very interesting at all.

There are many interesting pieces at this museum. Particularly the Africa and Oceanianic areas. The museum is well laid out and staff were very friendly and helpful. We spent an hour there while waiting for our prebooked slot at Picasso. For me and my family...More

Interesting place with rooms for different regions with art from those times and places. Enjoyed it, even though some regions were not covered.

This is one of the very best museums I have ever visited. The low entrance fee provides access to a brilliantly curated exhibition of art and cultural objects from Africa, Asia, America and Oceana. Each collection is sufficient to showcase the beauty, fearsomeness, or other...More

The museum is located in a beautiful zone of Barcelona. The entry fee was cheap (around 5-6 euro per person). They had about 5-6 exposition went we went. It was a good activity for a rainy day or a extremely hot day!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
