The monumental site in Plaça del Rei is the founding nucleus of the MUHBA and has been since the museum was set up in 1943. The remains at the Plaça del Rei monumental site are from different times in the city’s history: Roman Barcino in the 1st century BC, the Visigothic Barchinona of the 7th century AD, and 13th century medieval Barcelona. The underground visit allows you to take a walk through Roman Barcelona, get a close look at the city walls dating from that period, step into a 2nd century AD ‘dry cleaners’, see the vestiges of the city’s first Christian community, and more.
Temporary exhibition 'Barcelona, port mediterrani entre oceans. El testimoni del vaixell Barceloneta I’' in the vestibule at El Tinell. The ship ‘Barceloneta I’ was found at the old railway station that once served the local area, and restored by the Centre d'Arqueologia Subaquàtica and the Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA), and installed thanks to the Port of Barcelona, an institution that is a member of the Cercle del Museu.
