We were staying at Hotel Claris, which offers admission to the museum. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a well curated museum on two floors, with a library/special exhibits area. It is not huge, but is very well done. I’d give it about 90 minutes...More

This was mostly a waste of time on our part. Two medium sized rooms with no audio guide as a permanent exhibition and a room with no English translation holding a temporary exhibition. The exhibits have just a short description, the museum tells no tale....More

Ok so I’m biased as an Egyptologist, but this small looking museum which is from a mainly private collection is truly stunning. There actually three levels and on my visit there were two temporary exhibitions on to compliment the main artifacts on permanent display. Sacred...More

We were very impressed with this museum. It has some beautiful and fascinating artefacts from ancient Egypt, including a few mummies and some stunning jewellery!

This museum was one of the best curated museums I've been to; it was beautifully presented, seemed brand new and super modern, with small descriptions that weren't overwhelming but were very interesting. All of the descriptions were in Spanish and English except for the temporary...More

Many mummies, many many burial artifacts. One of the best Egyptian collections I've seen. Includes a section on animals in Egyptian art, and another that presents artifacts that are similar to those found in King Tut's tomb - along with pictures that illustrate those similarities.

Looking forward to visiting this museum based on reviews. Brought two kids (5 and 8) and initial expectations good as they had a childrens pack (albeit €3) so thought it was going to be suitable, Museum layout very nice and informative in 3 languages (catalan,...More

Eixample
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

international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
