  • The truth is that after much walking through the streets of Barcelona I wanted to see something smaller and we decided to this museum by the subject attracts us. The case is that it is in the Center and do not have to move much, is fairly economical and is not a vast Museum. In fact, in one hour and a half saw them everything carefully, listening to the audios and watching the videos of the audio guide that you download on your mobile (advisable to carry headphones). The parts that are exposed are interesting enough that should it do you nothing long. I recommend seeing it if you like the subject and want a more quiet time somewhere inside. In addition, it is not very full and is comfortable.
