Interesting story behind this museum. Bareclona city decided to build a new road in town and while digging for construction the old Roman city of Barcino was discovered. Hence a major part of this museum is underground to include the old Roman city as well.
You get a glimpse into the lives of the Romans who were living far away from their native Italy and bringing some of their foreign culture into Spain. The best was of course the area devoted to wine making ^O^
Don't forget to get your audio guide.
Admission is 7.00 Euro, but free to those with the Barcelona Card.
