Fodor's Review

Presumably you came to Barcelona to learn about Catalonia, not ancient Egypt, but you might be making a mistake by skipping this major collection of art and artifacts. Housing what is probably Spain's most comprehensive exhibition on Egypt, this excellent museum takes advantage of state-of-the-art curatorial techniques that are nearly as interesting as the subject matter, which ranges from mummies to exhibits on what the ancient Egyptian had for dinner.
