Archaeology Museum of Catalonia

Jewels of archaeology

In the privileged setting of the Park of Montjuïc, one of the “green lungs” of the city of Barcelona, the Museum invites you to take a journey to the roots of Catalonia, from Prehistory to mediaeval times. You will find a selection of our best archaeological exhibits, housed in a relaxing atmosphere. The architecture has been preserved for one of the old palaces of the International Exhibition of 1929, located in Poble Sec —one of the most Bohemian and multi-cultural districts of Barcelona.

What is more, every weekend we will capture your imagination with a thousand and one stories. At weekends you can enjoy guided visits to our permanent and temporary exhibitions and family workshops, whose price is included in the admission fee.
