Museu D'Historia De La Ciutat - City History Museum, Barcelona: 23 reviews and 75 photos
Barcelona is a pretty interesting city. It's a unique blend of cultures and styles, of old and new beauty, a meeting place of different ideas and philosophies. It isn't, however, a place where history has been made on the scale of Paris, London or even Sarajevo. The Museu d'Hist˛ria de la Ciutat is an interesting place, but like many other civil museums it packs itself with so much material you begin to wonder if there are any artefacts that are not on display. The good thing is that the city museum has different exhibits that alternate and change every few months, and that they are generally themed around specific intersections of history, literature, art and myth. I went to a display on the city's ancient roots. There were plenty of displays of pottery and weaponry from the Iberians, Celts, Greeks and Romans, all well organized but still a bit overwhelming. This isn't somewhere you should plan to visit instead of, say, the MNAC or the Picasso Museum, but it is an interesting stop if you're in Barcelona for an extended period of time and want to see something that only locals tend to visit.
