Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya


The museum’s main centre in Barcelona is housed in the old Palace of Graphic Arts, which was built on Montjuïc for the International Exposition of 1929. Ordered chronologically and geographically, the collections offer a journey from the beginnings of mankind to the medieval period and provide information on cultures from the rest of the Iberian peninsula and the Mediterranean region.

A palace on Montjuïc

The Catalan government founded the new Archaeological Museum of Catalonia in 1932, under the Second Republic, in the building that houses it now, the Palace of Graphic Arts, a Renaissance-inspired pavilion from the International Exposition of 1929. This is a relaxing and welcoming space, where the architecture of the old palace has been respected. It is on Montjuïc, one of Barcelona’s main green areas.

Guided tours and workshops

The museum conserves the Parc de la Ciutadella Museum’s archaeological collections, the Santa Àgata lapidary collection and numerous other collections from various sources. It has a permanent exhibition of a selection of the best archaeological items found in Catalonia, exquisitely displayed to present the country’s oldest history.
