The Museum of Catalonian History is dedicated to the history of Catalonia in Spain . It is situated in Barcelona in a reconstructed former port depot, at 3 Pl. Vila de Pau Street.

One of the Most Interesting Cultural Attractions in Barcelona

The Museum of Catalonian History takes up four floors of the only preserved building of the ancient Barcelona port. Two floors show an exposition on the history of Catalonia from the Paleolith times to present. Artifacts that recall important events in Catalonia and the daily life of Catalonian ancestors are on display. The exposition is divided by 8 different periods. Many of the exhibits are interactive. One part of the exposition is dedicated to the modern formation of the "Catalonian nation". The remaining parts of the Museum of Catalonian History host several temporary expositions and comprise an auditorium, a café with a patio, a restaurant and a library. So if you are into Catalonian history, the local traditions and if you would like to know something about the present, you should definitely not miss out a visit of this museum. But if you don´t have a possibility to visit it in person, take a virtual guided tour right HERE .
