This summer I visited it, I was very surprised, it seems like a small building, but no. It has three floors and is very complete, a walk through history Highly recommended in Girona.
All right, the building is very big and beautiful, now the architect who built the concrete bridge not so many years ago was on top of everything because it is horrible, unstable and badly done.
Located in the building that housed the city's old high school and of which Josep Pla was a student and wrote, the museum has several floors that order the history of the city chronologically. Highlights include the ground floor dedicated to the Roman Gerunda and the pieces of extraordinary value on display.
Great exposure despite the small size of the sample. Very healing, it is noticeable that she is prepared with feeling and emotion. Many thanks to whoever made it possible!
Very good museum, educational and complete. The room with drawings of the attacks, made by girls and boys during the civil war, is painfully unmissable. Try to take advantage of the free Sunday of each month.
Fantastic! Well kept, very well illustrated collection.
Very pleasant and beautiful. We really liked it and are recommending it to everyone.
Very efficient in terms of visitor service, super clean, interesting museum and very well located in the old town of Girona, excellent.
I enjoyed the visit very much.
It's the best place to understand the city, I would even go as far as recommending a visit instead of hiring a guide; if you visit it first, you'll understand the city very well when touring around the old quarters.
The last exhibition was quite interesting, it was about the museums under the bombs, it was about Catalan art that went into exile in the Spanish civil war
The Girona history museum is a place that I have recently discovered and wish I had found sooner. They make discounts to students and others, and because it is from Girona, entry is free. It is very large and explains the history of Girona in detail, from its Roman origins to the present day. It has all kinds of very interesting samples and texts. I totally recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the city ...
Very cool and complete. It runs in 2-3 hours. Standard price €4, €2 reduced rate.
We liked it a lot and it was free because it was the first Sunday of the month
It's bigger then it looks like, the entrance for UdG students it's for free. It was a good experience and could learn alot about the history of Girona.
In a small space, you enjoy a wide journey through the history of our city. You see authentic pieces very well preserved, which by themselves narrate momentous events. You travel in time the various changes, struggles, achievements, advances, projects and improvements of our city, which still preserves the vestiges of its past and is heading safely towards the future. This museum allows us to keep alive the vibrant history of our region, it allows us to know ourselves and therefore to know where and why we project our future.
Didn't go in
A journey through the history of the city, a marvel.
Very interesting. With many themes from the history of Girona
The museum is very nice. Maximum travel time of one hour. Bring a mobile phone for the audio guides because the cards are in Catalan. The person who attended us was very friendly.
It is the chronology of an intense past history of more than 2000 years - Roman civilization - medieval - modern and current. History with a lot of epic due to being a crowded city besieged by numerous armies.
A small museum that offers interactive content on the history of the city. The ticket is not expensive and for students it is half the price. ;-)
A very good way to get to know the history of these Dutch pioneers who with bravery and courage brought and donated their culture to the city of De Holambra. The museum contains historical records collected among the pioneers. There you can experience through photos and objects what the early days of Holambra were like. It is worth knowing this precious memorial.
We liked the exhibition of photographs of the great Fargnoli, one of the pioneers of the photographic image, made with care. A journey through time for our land.
Informative and user friendly. Staff on reception helpful and well informed
It is very didactic, very visual and harmonic. The curatorship is very good, recommended to go to know the great story that is hidden in this beautiful region.
The Museum of History of Girona is even more attractive if you visit it during the Time of Flowers where it is decorated with magnificent floral decorations. A totally recommended visit to have a view of the historical origins of the city and its evolution and changes up to the present day, going through all its historical stages.
A place that has a lot to do and know.
Very complete museum where they explain in detail the different stages of the city from Roman times to the present day. Very well organized by rooms and good indication. To highlight the section on the republic and civil war. Special mention to the incredibly clean museum bathrooms, both me and my boyfriend had one of our best poops ever. Apart from the clean toilets, there were no people, which made it a very pleasant and pleasant experience. The correct ventilation of the toilet meant that the smell of truños was well concealed. At the exit we were able to refill water, all in all we could say that it was a very well cushioned entry.
Very interesting, very spacious (with several floors) and with a lot of information. I don't finish it in one day. To take a photo is also fine. The friendly treatment, and being from Girona access is free .
Very good museum to understand the history of Girona
It was very beautiful and rich in both the Gironian and the Catalan heritage. I was very pleased with this visit and the history of Girona
Imprescinple, authentic jewels of the past and of the importance of Girona in the Middle Ages
Fascinating collections depicting the history of the City, and beautifully displayed. An oasis of cool and calm after the strong heat and crowds outside. Thank you. Jeanie
Very informative museum with well done exhibits covering the history of Girona from Roman times to the present. Cards with translations available for each section.
It is very didactic. Congratulations to the museographer who designed it
The museum offers numerous exhibitions and in addition to its great historical collection, the thematic rooms cover the history of Catalonia since prehistory. It is a must-see for any tourist and lover of world cultures.
Very good collection of artefacts and resources about Girona, but it's lack of inter-activity makes it slightly dated. However, for many this might be an advantage. It has a certain traditional charm and the sections on the effects of the Franco regime locally are moving.
