I remember it being better, it is an interesting museum to go to, especially if it is being very hot outside but it is not immersive enough. I think there is to much empty space. There is a full size sip inside and there are lots of interesting facts
Very well-done and comprehensive history of the port of Barcelona. It has a large amount of information on the formation and building of the port as well as how the port culture of Barcelona evolved. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn about the history of the area and not just people who like boats! Their reconstructed royal galley is incredible as well and serves as the centerpiece for the whole museum.
A must see! We have visited the museum a midweek July summer day and it was completely empty. Only 5-6 more people there. So we enjoyed the articles with a slow pace and in serenity! Leaving a lot of space for nice photos without the crowds! The main exhibit was a copy of the royal Galleon which is the main attraction. Unfortunately by the time we exited the museum, the shop was closed. Toilets in bad condition and one of the projectors was of in one of the two screening rooms. They also offer free audioguide in the section 2 of the museum. Unfortunately, they haven’t granted the discount for our children as we have not presented their school ID as we didn’t carry them on holidays.
A gem of a museum located in the former Royal shipyards. u that give you a glimpse into the city’s longtime relationship with the sea. Pros: The centerpiece is a beautifully reconstructed royal Galleon that dominated the Mediterranean in its day. The building includes the medieval walls and one of the entrance gates. Rotating temporary exhibits. Cons: Not always clear how to navigate between exhibits. Note: make sure you pick up headphones to get the most out of the videos.
Nice place to go for drinks, coffee included. There are days when it is full but on some days, you could bring a book and just enjoy. The museum is great.
Historical place very well preserved and presented! You can have some feal of the challenging aspects from that time. The Museum is very light and you can explore at your own pace. There's also one afternoon per week to enjoy free of charge! You can enjoy the small bar outside, although the service is minimal the space is huge and very comfortable.
I like maritime museums, and I visit every one that I get close to. If this kind of thing doesn't interest you, then ignore my review and avoid this museum. That said, I enjoyed a few hours here very much. There are two special exhibits. One is a full-size replica of a sixteenth century fighting gallery of the largest class, complete in every detail apart from the rowers and the guns. The other is the building housing the museum: the original ship sheds of the arsenal where such ships were built. It seems to me that the museum is curated by museum specialists rather than naval specialists, but that is hardly a complaint - it's just an observation.
My fiance and I had an opportunity to go to the Barcelona Maritime Museum during our stay in Barcelona. If you're a fan of history, maritime or just looking for a way to spend a few hours in Barcelona to take in more of the culture, this is an excellent option. There were ample translations for every exhibit and in general it was very interesting. If you go on the first Sunday of the month it is free. Also the adjacent cafe is a nice spot to relax. The structure itself is a repurposed shipyard. Plan accordingly.
Went for the game of thrones exhibit which was very neat to see. The staff were not helpful. Online it said that the exhibit cost 10£ when it cost 17£ to get in. I thought the admission was for the exhibit and main museum when it was only for the exhibit and gave 50% off the museum. There was a photo op for sitting in the iron throne for 12£ then in the next room a free photo opp to sit in the iron throne. Neat exhibit but misleading and overpriced.
This review if for the space. While we were exploring the city, we saw that they have a game of thrones exhibit at here. And originally it was supposed to have ended but they extended it through March 11, 2018! We barely made the cut off date. The exhibit was awesome and the backdrop of this museum set the mood. I'm a total game of thrones nerd so it was so much fun climbing the wall, posing with the swords, and capturing my face for the House of Black and White. But the best part of course was taking a seat on the iron throne.
A must for any history loving museum fan, the building alone is something to behold and know that this is the place were the great Spanish fleet was built. The exhibits are well done and informative, an awesome recreation of a Roman galley or gallery ship you can tour and located near the ocean front which you can enjoy after the visit and imagine the great ships sail away.
An interesting group of exhibits mostly dealing with the history if the port and the local neighborhood. There are some very nice ship models. The building itself is a historical site having served as a naval shipyard, weapons foundry, and warehouse for hundreds of years. The largest exhibit is a faithful recreation of a royal galley of 61 oars. Each oar was pulled by four men some of whom were slaves and some imprisoned convicts. Some were even free men. The museum is only a short distance from an L2 metro stop.
Monday thanks to holidays many museum worked, very convenient for a rainy day)👍☔ This museum I can rate 9/10: computer games of how to build a ship correctly or organise the crew.., videos with artists, interesting facts, a lot of models of ships. Even read you can sail! Most of all I liked the shipyard building itself and how it is connected with an exhibition, I think some nice interior designer organisied the whole space there. Very good and ertisstic museum shop. Everything is perfect!!
Nice huge boat, all the rest is very confusing, somewhat irrelevant, too much text. Lots of modern technology, but never applied to bring a good story. Of most video's I had no idea what they were trying to convey. They looked expensive though.
Excellent interactive audio-visual exhibition. Lovely exhibition space and good value. Exhibits are well narrated and informative. Great cafe with good 3 course lunch including drink for only 12 euros. Not busy, surprisingly. Great way to spend a few hours in relative calm.
Goof museum if you're into ships and Catalan ship building. The staff is friendly and helpful, place is clean and the exhibits are very informative. When I visited, the Game of Thrones touring exbitixhibition was being held and it's a pretty cool thing to check out if you're a GoT fan. I highly recommend and it's free on Sundays.
A pretty different musuem than the others in the city. Quite informative. Had huge ceilings. Some games to play in the screen. It talked about the maritime history of Barcelona in the earlier centuries. And a quite well depicted change in trade of goods from then to now. It also showed how ships were made and from which material in the earlier times. What kind of people used and for what purposes they used to be used for.
