The Maritim Museum of Barcelona a would like to inform you of the actions that it has adopted in compliance with measures for containing the COVID-19 virus, in accordance with the health warning issued by the Generalitat of Catalonia:

Extraordinary hygiene measures for the protection of both users and visitors:
The routine cleaning of the museum’s installations has been intensified.
The routine cleaning and disinfection of the audioguides for use by visitors touring the museum’s exhibitions is now more thorough, with the use of alcohol-based liquid disinfectant. The museum is reducing the access of visitors to exhibition halls to one third of the normal permitted visitor figures, in order to ensure sufficient protective space between people.

We have cancelled or postponed the following family-oriented activities that had been scheduled for the next two weekends (14th/15th and 21st/22nd of March):
The workshop-activity Monstres i sirenes [Monsters and mermaids] scheduled for Sunday 15th March. Cancelled
Viatge al fons del mar en Batiscaf [Voyage to the bottom of the sea in a bathyscape] scheduled for Sunday 22nd March. Cancelled
The storytelling session “Petites històries, grans dones” [Little stories, great women] scheduled for Sunday 14th March. Postponed.

We have postponed the following adult-oriented activities for larger audiences, pending confirmation of new information:
Gastronomic supper “El peix a les cuines del món” [Fish in the world’s cuisines] scheduled for 26th March. Postponed.
Workshop on Museums and Education, scheduled for 24th March. Postponed.

As from Sunday 15th March, and until further notice, every Sunday afternoon (from 15:00 onwards) the museum will be closed to visitors as a temporary extraordinary measure designed to prevent the habitual build-up of visitor numbers inside the museum as a result of access to the museum being free on Sunday afternoons. On all other days, the museum is expected to be open to the public as usual, Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 20:00, and Sundays from 10:00 to 15:00.

All other activities organised for all members of the public (sailing trips and walking routes) and school trips (providing they do not include teachers, non-teaching staff or students from different schools simultaneously) will continue to be offered in accordance with the habitual times and days.

We at the Museu Marítim de Barcelona are working hard to help contain the COVID-19 virus and to safeguard the health of visitors, users and staff at this public facility. We will keep you informed of any possible news that might arise with regard to our museum’s action protocols, in accordance with the guidelines issued by the health authorities.

We regret any inconvenience caused,
