5 Of The Best Museums In Barcelona

by

There’s nothing like tanning on the beach or bar-hopping into the night in Barcelona—but between all of the sun, sand, and sangria, the city has a lot to offer culturally-minded travelers hoping to grasp a better understanding of the pulse of the city and its unique history.

Planning a trip to Barcelona? Here are some of the best museums in the city if you’re hoping to dip your toes into the rich Catalan history:

Picasso Museum

Whether you’re a huge Picasso fan or you don’t necessarily know your Guernica from your Old Guitarist, a trip to the Picasso Museum is very well worth your time. The charming museum is set in the Gothic Quarter and boasts one of the most expansive collections of the Spanish artist’s work with over 4,000 pieces of his art.

Catalan Museum of Archaeology

If you’re into prehistoric and ancient artifacts and history, be sure to head to the Catalan Museum of Archaeology. The museum was originally founded in 1932 and has since expanded to include the most important archaeological collection of Catalonia, from medieval statues to pre-Romanesque churches and tombs.

Museum of the History of Barcelona

Barcelona has a rich, complex history that you probably won’t be an expert on after visiting any museum in the city, but the Museum of the History of Barcelona is undoubtedly your best bet. The museum’s main focuses include conserving, researching and offering exhibits centered around the historical heritage of Barcelona, and dates all the way back to Roman times. It even has carefully preserved Roman ruins underneath the museum itself that visitors can catch a glimpse of.

Park Güell

Although it’s admittedly a bit of a trek from the city center, Park Güell is a must-see when visiting Barcelona. Here you’ll find all those picturesque Gaudí buildings and swirling ceramic mosaics that Barcelona is so well known for. Enjoy a few hours of traipsing through the fauna, flora and colorful designs—but get there early if you don’t want to be surrounded by tour groups.

FC Barcelona at Camp Nou

OK—so it’s not necessarily a museum in the traditional sense but it is imperative to explore while in town if you’re hoping to get a feel for the city. Football fans will probably already have a match at Camp Nou on their to-do lists, but it’s truly a must do for anyone looking to really soak in Barcelona to the fullest. Tickets will run you just under $100 when the construction is finished but is truly worth it if you want to experience what it’s like to be surrounded by serious soccer fans. If you’re visiting before the stadium is re-opened, it’s worth noting that you can still visit the museum and gift shop.
