Barcelona City History Museum (MUHBA)

The Barcelona City History Museum guards the legacy of times gone by, and of the people that lived in and created Barcelona.

The museum conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the historical heritage of the city, from its origins in Roman times, through medieval and early industrial, all the way to the present day.

The museum’s headquarters are located on Plaça del Rei, in the Barcelona Gothic Quarter. It also manages several historic sites all around the city, most of them archaeological sites displaying remains of the ancient Roman city, called Barcino in Latin. Some others date to medieval times, including the Jewish quarter and the medieval royal palace called the Palau Reial Major. The rest are contemporary, among them old industrial buildings and sites related to Antoni Gaudí and the Spanish Civil War.

The museum was inaugurated on 14 April 1943.
