A 13th century building in the heart of the city

The Barcelona Maritime Museum (MMB) is a facility dedicated to the dissemination of maritime culture and, especially, to the conservation, preservation and dissemination of the maritime cultural heritage of Barcelona and Catalonia. The MMB is deeply rooted in the city of Barcelona, both because of its own history and because of the building that houses it, the monumental complex of the Royal Shipyards of Barcelona.

The architectural complex of the Reales Atarazanas has more than seven centuries of history. It was built from the 13th century onwards for the construction and maintenance of galleys and warships at the service of the King of Aragon Peter the Great. Over the years it became a first-rate Gothic construction that still survives today, becoming one of the most significant buildings in the history of Barcelona.

Currently, four permanent exhibitions make up the Museographic discourse of the Museum, which covers the history of navigation from the 13th century to the 20th century: Drassanes and Galeres, Catalonia at sea. The Catalan navy, from the 18th to the 20th centuries, Las Arenas X. A medieval ship and 7 ships, 7 stories.

You also cannot miss a visit to the Santa Eulalia pailebote, a sailboat more than one hundred years old that is part of the Museum's water heritage, and that allows you to understand the history of navigation and maritime trade in our country. Due to its heritage and historical value, in 2011 it was declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest. The Santa Eulalia is moored at the Bosch y Alsina Dock, very close to the Maritime Museum. It can be visited daily. On Saturday mornings he goes sailing along Barcelona's seafront, except when he participates in traditional nautical events in other ports.

The cultural offer of the Maritime Museum is completed with activities aimed at all audiences with the sea as the protagonist. Particularly significant is the cultural offer aimed at family audiences, the Library specializing in maritime culture and history, a shop and a restaurant.

The Barcelona Maritime Museum can be visited from Monday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (last access at 7 p.m.).

Every Sunday from 3 p.m. entry is free. More information: www.mmb.cat
