Called in to pass an hour and learn about the city. However I gleaned more from the handouts in the foyer. A lot of the information boards are not in English and the most interesting times ie the Romans and civil war bombings are hardly...More

Really enjoyed our visit to this small museum. We were most interested in 20th century stuff and found this section of the museum to be very informative.

A small museum telling the history of Girona. Not a lot to see but immaculately presented with commentary boards in English. Entrance only €4. You can then get a discount off of other museums in the group , so worth a detour to take advantage.

The museum is modern and accessible. However, if you don't read Catalan there is not enough explanation of the many interesting things on exhibit. The building is very interesting (a former monastery) and the exhibits well presented. But, unfortunately we could not appreciate the City's...More
