The Museu d’Arqueologia de Catalunya (MAC; Archaeological Museum of Catalonia), torchbearer of the archaeological museum tradition since the turn of the century, is fruit of the Museum Act ratified in 1990. As a National Museum, its main objective is to preserve, research and diffuse archaeological remains that illustrate historical evolution from prehistory to the Middle Ages.
The MAC is divided into a network of museums and archaeological sites. Currently, it comprises the Barcelona and Girona Archaeological Museums, the Greco-Roman city Empúries, the historical complex Olèrdola, the Iberian settlement Ullastret, the Centre d’Arqueologia Subaquàtica de Catalunya (CASC; Underwater Archaeology Centre of Catalonia) and the Iberian settlements Molí d’Espígol (Tornabous), Castell (Palamós), Coll del Moro (Gandesa) and Castellet de Banyoles (Tivissa), along with the prehistoric settlement Roca dels Moros (El Cogul) and the Roman city of Iesso (Guissona). The MAC Barcelona has updated 70% of its contents: more accessible and more educational. To achieve this, the Museum has worked with the best specialists in each period, incorporating all relevant pieces of catalan archaeology and with the experience and knowledge of designers who have helped to shape all folding. We invite you to come and enjoy this new museum. Opening Hours
