The National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona
The National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona was inaugurated during the
first half of the nineteenth century, making it the oldest museum in
Catalunya specializing in its field of works.
Although some of the artifacts that the museum has
were discovered in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth
centuries, most of the
museum collections remains recovered in the last 150
years resulting from port construction and urban growth.
The National Archaeological Museum occupies its current location from
1960, in a
building designed for the museum and built on a piece of the
stretch of the wall.
The visit to the National Archaeological Museum also includes a visit to
Paleochristian Museum and Cemetery, dedicated to
death, funeral rites and preservation of the bodies in situ
during Roman times.
