Barcelona is famous for it's beaches, modernism architecture, nighlife, sunny streets and great parks. The city also boasts a large array of museums which are perfect for those occasional rainy days or to spend time immersed in culture.
On this page I have listed museums in Barcelona city that are traditional types of museums or museum historic houses that are open for tourist visits. Catalonia also has some great museum castles to visit that have history exhibitions. Also included is any attraction that is educational in an exhibition format.
The Majority of museums are in Barcelona city but I have also included some interesting places outside of the city that I recommend visiting.
Museums that are run by Barcelona city council are usually free on the first Sunday of the month. Museums outside of the city also have free days as well so check them out. For more information check out the Free museums budget page.
