City History Museum of Barcelona
The Barcelona City History Museum (Museu d'História de la Ciutat de Barcelona, in Catalan) was inaugurated in 1943 and is devoted to the history of Barcelona.
Inside the museum there is an excavated area allowing you to see the foundations of Roman buildings from the first century BC, and at the upper part, a Visigoth necropolis.
The museum also displays Roman sculptures, objects and documents of the medieval guilds that existed in the city, and an exhibition on Catalan life and customs fromthe sixteenth century to today.
The museum is made up of six areas, each located in a different building. The headquarters is located in the ancient Clarana-Padellas palace. The palace is a late fifteenth century Gothic building. In 1931, the whole building was moved stone by stone to its present location because it was affected by urban development plans.
