Maritime Museum of Barcelona | Cultural Heritage. Goverment of Catalonia.
Maritime Museum of Barcelona Man and the Sea throughout History
T
The Royal Shipyard building, where many of the boats that would set sail during the Medieval and Modern period, are now gathered in the Maritime Museum of Barcelona (MMB). Therefore, there is no better place to explore the relationship between man and the sea and learn about the maritime culture and history of Catalonia.

The large gothic naves House the boats of the permanent collection of the museum, such as the Royal Galley, the boat República or the catboat Jean et Marie, going through shipbuilding between the 13th and 18th centuries. Also noteworthy are the replicas of the Santa María, the flagship of Christopher Columbus as well as the submarine called Ictineu by Narcís Monturiol. Other pieces of note in the collection are the multiple figureheads that the museum holds and marine instruments such as octants and sextants, mechanical sonar devices, compasses and nautical astrolabes, among others.

The restored Royal Shipyards of Barcelona opened their doors on 16 February 2013, once the restoration was finished for this extraordinary heritage site. The renovation also includes the Museum, which now displays elements that facilitate interactive dialogue, life experience and cross-disciplinary knowledge of maritime culture and history using multiple disciplines. Furthermore, the renovations also opened access to areas that until then had been restricted, such as the Baluard gardens, the walkway and the view of the only remains of the medieval wall of the city, from the 15th century.

Plan your visit

What can I do?
The Maritime Museum of Barcelona periodically organizes family workshops in the maritime field. You can also go out in a historic sailboat from the beginning of the 20th century, the schooner of Santa Eulàlia. And if you like to stay on dry land, don’t miss the theatrical tour of the Baluard gardens. There you will find troops of La Coronela from 1714 standing guard!
