  • Being a boat owner for 50 years this was the best maritime museum that I have ever visited. It was extremely well presented with an easy to follow guided route around the very interesting exhibits.

  • This reminds me of how fun it is to visit good museums and learn new things! It was a last minute decision to pass by this place and we didn't expect to be so immersed in the history of maritime industry and how Spain and Barcelona play a role in this landscape. I love that the museum covers a wide range of angles, from engineering to sociocultural and economic perspectives across time and space. The elaborate explanations and artifacts were well presented in this huge ex-shipyard space. Def recommend!
  • Dodged into here because it started to rain and we were so glad we did! We spent a very worthwhile few hours there. Well presented material and the Spanish galley is stunning. Nice cafe with garden seating as well - a quiet respite at the base of the Ramblas
