The Museum of the History of Barcelona (Catalan: Museu d'Història de Barcelona, MUHBA) is a history museum that conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the historical heritage of the city of Barcelona, from its origins in Roman times until the present day. The museum's headquarters are located on Plaça del Rei, in the Barcelona Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic). It also manages several historic sites all around the city, most of them archaeological sites displaying remains of the ancient Roman city, called Barcino in Latin. Some others date to medieval times, including the Jewish quarter and the medieval royal palace called the Palau Reial Major. The rest are contemporary, among them old industrial buildings and sites related to Antoni Gaudí and the Spanish Civil War.

A pretty fascinating place. You can see the remains of various different adjacent buildings including a wine making factory, a house, a place where fabrics were dyed and also a church. I would definitely get the free audio guide as it provided a lot of interesting information.
The museum is over the remains of the original Roman settlement. We enjoyed walking through the ruined. Displays are multilingual. We were there for an hour and a half and really enjoyed the museum
It's a cool museum with a cool concept. The design drew you into the ancient atmosphere. It provides you with an audio guide in several languages as well. You pay EUR 7 (student: EUR 4/5) and you will be free to enter any other museums in their list.
Definitely a cool place to go to see Roman ruins. Definitely worth it if you can visit on a Sunday afternoon after 3pm. It's free!
Cool place to see the roman remains underground in Barcelona. For 7EUR including audio guide, this is definitely worth the money.
Really cool museum that showcases the history and milestones of the City of Barcelona. Provides a detailed history on the various stages that the city has passed through from prehistoric inhabitants to the modern day expansion and migrations. Could use more English descriptions as many were only in Catalan or Spanish, but this is understandable as it is not an English speaking city.
I definitely recommend this museum if you like Barcelona's history, museums, historical sites, or simply cool, old stuff. My jaw dropped when I walked out of the elevator! Visitors almost literally get a chance to walk the streets of the old city. Free on Sunday's after 3pm and the first Sunday of every month.
Well worth a visit if you are interested in the history and evolution of Barcelona. Get the audio guide that takes you through time nicely. Well laid out and presented. Quite a large area downstairs with lots of Roman excavations. Student prices - cost maybe about 7 euros per person
History and evolution of the city from Barcino to Barcelona. Huge area full of great laid out excavations. History is well explained on the labels in front of the ruins. Very well presented! Congrats!
If you're interested in archaelogy or Roman ruins, it's definitely worth the visit. Free audio guides also make it much more immersive.
I guess this one is with Gaudi architecture best choice to find out Barcelona long timw history. Under todays Barcelona we find remains of ancient Roma colony fascinating underworld full of remains houses etc. Every lover of history especcialy ancient times will enjoy this one. Really must to see
