The History Museum of Catalonia was opened in 1996 by the Generalitat and it's situated in the antique Magatzems Generals de Comerç (MGC) or Palau de Mar, the only preserved building from the old industrial port in Barcelona. Its contemporary architecture can be appreciated in all the building.
The museum offers a variety of temporary and permanent exhibitions in relation with Catalonia's history as well as many organised activities such as puppet shows or plays for families, kids and schools.
The most outstanding view from the Port of Barcelona is right here, on the 4th floor of the museum. Enjoy a panoramic view of the city while relaxing in the chill out lounge bar or have some food and cocktails at the Mediterranean Restaurant.
Enjoy skip-the-line access, soak up some culture and make the most of the museum's viewpoint!
