MUSEUM - Visits

One of the guided tours in the Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona believes that it is essential that all visitors view our exhibitions guided by an Egyptologist, because to learn about our Egyptian collection guided by a specialist is the best way to understand it in depth and increase everyone’s knowledge.

The Museum offers guided visits to its permanent exhibition that are free with the entrance ticket and take place every Saturday at 11.00 a.m. in Catalan and at 17.00 p.m. in Spanish.
Special Group visits must be booked in advance on:
