  • Very nice museum especially for sea and sailing fans. Also gives a very good picture of the development of the Port of Barcelona over the ages. Good amount of models of variety of boats. Great perk: we went there on a Sunday afternoon and the entry was free from 15:00.
  • Pretty good museum with a large collection of maritime memorabilia and boating displays. A sizeable section of the museum had devotion to pictures of a famous artist, Ave being at the start of the museum detracted from the essence of 'maritime' aspect. The large ship reconstructed within the walls stood quite proud, but could have been made more impressive with the displays in either side were faced the other was as to not encapsulate the main display with their walls.
