While this is a small museum, (you can see it all in 30 minutes to an hour), the price is higher than other local museums. This makes it a poor value. For example a trip to the National Museum of Catalunya cost 8 € and...More

For a museum with such a good reputation (at least so it seems online), I was surprised by the rather small size of it. The next surprise was the amount of time I end up spending in that small museum. I don't often read a...More

Barcelona and it rained. What to do? I was close to the Egyptian Museum. The entry fee was 12 EUR but included an audio guide. Quite expensive but it rained. Better dry and warm inside than wet and cold outside. Friendly staff at the reception...More

If you are a fan of Egyptian history you will enjoy the museum. It is relatively small but with quality exhibits. Worth spending an hour + and get some additional insight and education about the very reach culture of the Egyptian dynasties.

Stairs. A bit confusing, not a straight guided path. Not everything is in English. For interested minds.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally

glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
