The Museu Marítim (Maritime Museum) in Barcelona is certainly one of the most interesting sights. The museum is fitting in the former shipyards of Drasannes accommodated. The museum is located at the southern edge of the Old Town and at the end of the Rambla.In the Drasannes were built in the 13 until 18 Century war and merchant ships The construction of the shipyards was Barcelona's naval supremacy throughout the Mediterranean expansion. It could take up to 30 galleys simultaneously in the built vaults. From 1792, the Drassanes are used as barracks.
Since 1929, the permanent exhibition is at the Maritime Museum and shows the maritime history of Catalonia, the museum moved in the Gothic building in 1936. In several steps then the buildings were restored, so that it now has an exhibition area of more than 10,000 sq metres.(The info is taken from link)
