The Museum of Badalona is in the heart of the ancient Roman city of Baetulo. The subsoil conserves one of the most important archaeological complexes from the Roman era in Catalonia. A circular route allows visitors to see more than 3,400 m2 of the city: the baths from the 1st century BC – one of the oldest examples on the Iberian Peninsula – along with some of the most important streets with homes and shops. The entire complex reveals to us what everyday life was more than 2,000 years ago.
The permanent exhibition primarily includes pieces from the Roman era, including the Venus of Badalona, the hinges of the door to the city wall and the tabula hospitalis.
This entire space is theatrically illuminated and decorated with historically reconstructed elements and sound effects that transport visitors back to ancient Baetulo and immerse them in its world. The complex is handicapped-accessible and has touch modules for the visually impaired.
