The aim of the Maritime Museum of Barcelona’s editorial policy is to promote maritime history and culture in the aspects of promotion, loyalty, scientific dissemination and research. These publications are also important communication tools that help to boost the institution’s overall image.

In 1999 the Museum introduced a Publications Plan, devised with the framework objective of identifying four main core ideas for promoting dissemination, loyalty, scientific popularisation and research. The Plan highlighted, with much greater clarity and definition, which instruments should be incorporated into the Museum so as to achieve the set aims.

Virtually since it first opened, the Maritime Museum of Barcelona has published many different books, catalogues and pamphlets, in response to the needs and interests at each particular time. Most of these works prior to the year 2000 are now out of print, and only a few specific publications are available to purchase at the Museum shop. However, they can all be consulted in the Museum library.
