  • The museum is located in old shipyards. The nail of the program is a full-size galley! Lots of interactive exhibits. It's going to be interesting for the kids. Take an audio guide (there is on the Russian)!

  • It's a very easy spot. And the building is pretty flashy. Besides, the presentation is perfectly fine, although there is nothing too much to exhibit. Besides our maritime museums, I think it's too weak. Sundays are free after three hours. Get this day. At least you don't pay...

  • It’s a great spot for 90 minutes with modern multi-lingual audio guides included in the entrance. They lead you through the exhibition without entering numbers :-). Great information in three languages on displays, enough interactive displays for younger ones. Some explanations are a bit political to demonstrate Catalunya‘s stake as a country (using the kingdom of Sicily to throw out the French ;-)). Interesting facets about life and history on the sea. In a beautiful ship factory. To revisit.
  • Really beautiful museum. I like the architecture of the building and there are many useful information. And it's free on Sunday from 3pm.
