The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 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.
How to get there
  • Passeig de Gràcia • 6 min walk
  • Diagonal • 7 min walk

A nice but small museum. For 12 euro its about what you'd expect to pay, but in truth you'll only need an hour in here. The king tut exhibit has no English translations. I didn't see any toilets.

It’s a very complete museum displaying many excellent examples of the Egyptian culture. It exceeded my expectations! Worth a visit!

An absorbing exhibition Tutankhamun - History of a Discovery conveyed well what a seminal event this was about a century ago. Photographs, artefacts and posters show the key characters involved, including the central figure of Howard Carter.

Jean-François Champollion was the first to decipher more completely the Rosetta Stone in 1822 and images of both are here.

Death and the afterlife were key concerns during the lengthy Dynasties. A profusion of coffin lids with colourful paintings attest to this.

Impressive carvings of Egyptian Gods and other themes are great to view.

The museum is not very big, but it is quite interesting. It's worth taking the time to visit. Most exhibits are from the late dynasties. The ticket is cheap.

This little gem of a museum totally passed under the radar for me as I was planning out visit to Barcelona. I happened to notice it near our hotel and went in for a wonderful visit. The curators have done a beautiful job of making it accessible to English speakers and the collection is astonishing and really well displayed (why doesn't everyone. use mirrors when they're showing objects with writing on the back?!). The museum is a super manageable size and admission is very reasonable (and free or reduced with lots of combined tourist cards). Really the most engaging most accessible Egyptian collection I've ever been to.

Free with your Barcelona Travel Card. [even without the free pass the entrance fee is only about 12 Euro's]. A well laid out display of Egyptian artifacts on three floors. [lift available]. You have a free app to download to your phone which gives you x3 audible tours for each floor.

This is a private collection. The displays and information boards skillfully explain all the artifacts. The airconditioned environment was very welcome during our visit [July 2022].

A great place for kids to learn about the Egyptians and their history and ways.

I've visited this museum twice. Once in 2018 and once in 2022. There are many great exhibits in this museum and for 6 euros, it's good value for money.

Fascinating.  Very rare artefacts on display.  Egyptian civilisation was clearly way ahead of its time. The exhibits are beautifully arranged. The descriptions include an English translation. The street entrance is easy to miss, but it's not far off Passeig Gracia and most conveniently it was open until 7.30 pm , but do check their website as no doubt winter opening times will prevail soon.

It was a great pleasure to take my 11 years old daughter with me and see her face watching mummies, ancient utensils, decorations and clothes. The museum is very well organized. Advice: before you go check working hours!
