Museu Marítim de Barcelona

The Maritime Museum of Barcelona, which has been gathering an important collection of exhibits since 1929 that illustrate Catalan seafaring culture and help to understand the how and why of the country's maritime history, has recently expanded its cultural offerings with the opening of Baluard Gardens and Santa Madrona Door.

Through spectacular recreations, visitors can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of navigation and view the museum's collections of model ships, nautical instruments, ex-votos, seascapes, figureheads, and maps. The highlights of the museum's permanent collection include the full-scale replica of the Royal Galley used by Juan of Austria Austria who took part in the Battle of Lepanto (1571) and the historic schooner Santa Eulàlia, a three-masted, 46-meter-long vessel dating from 1918, which is moored in Barcelona's harbor.
