What people are saying about Museo d'Historia de Catalunya
We were able to get our voucher printed at the Sant train station Information desk where they also then gave us our passports and got us on our way. We didn’t see that as a possibility in the information we were emailed, so it felt like a lucky find. Made things very easy. We only were able to utilize two days, as that was the duration of our stay (actually, just 1-1/2 days). But, even at that, it more than easily paid for itself. We saw several museums (Picasso, Dissemy, Míro, etc.) and sights (Parc Guell, Sagrada Família, etc.) and were able to traverse the entire city quickly and easily via the included bus and metro.
The bus is a really convenient way to explore Barcelona. I was in Barcelona with my parents, who don’t enjoy walking long distances and they were super happy to be able to take the bus and move onto the next sight. All drivers and guides on the bus were super friendly and the audio guides were thorough and really well made. The only small problem we had was that the Park Güell stop was changed and neither the App nor the map are up to date so it took us a little while to make it back to the right place. It would be great if the app were updated. All in all I was really satisfied!
The pass I think depends on how long you will be there - I am not convinced that was value for money as quite a lot of the activities were not free - you only received a discount - and the ones that were free were relatively inexpensive and you could purchase easily at the time with no great expense. The travel card was good and made life easy for getting around the city
I chose the Hop On Hop Off tour because it took me to all the important spots to see in Barcelona at a reasonable price and allowed me the flexibility to hop off and on the bus however many times I wished. My husband had rented a car, but traffic and finding parking was really stressful, so that's why we decided to do the Hop On Hop Off tour.
It was a lovely day to see the sites and amazing buildings of Barcelona. Also having the opportunity to get on and off to visit the parks then enjoy ice creams along the way made our day more enjoyable. I would recommend everyone does this when visiting this beautiful city.
