Barcelona museums. Which ones to visit and which ones to include in the itinerary for a visit to the city?

If you are looking for inspirations for what to see during your next trip to Barcelona, you’re in the right place. Here is where to go.
FREE MUSEUMS IN MADRID
Spain is a culturally rich country nation and not everybody knows that there are many free museums in Madrid.
The museums have created this opportunity to allow Spanish citizens or regular tourists to admire their huge collections in many ways.
In fact, the admission is free on specific days or at specific times, so you can visit the museums and admire only one work or focus only on the works of a particular artist or historical period.
So here are the list of free museums in Madrid and useful information not to miss out this opportunity.
UNMISSABLE MUSEUMS IN GENOA YOU MUST VISIT AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME
Art and history are the legs of a journey discovering the museums in Genoa I consider unmissable.

THE GALATA MUSEO DEL MARE IN GENOA: MY VISIT TO THE GALATA MUSEUM, THE LARGEST MARITIME MUSEUM IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AREA
If there’s a museum I go to every time I visit the coast of the Liguria region, that’s the Galata Museo del Mare in Genoa (The Galata Sea Museum).
Here you can breathe the history of the sea and know the history of the city in depth.
When I visited Genoa for the first time I admired the Palazzi dei Rolli, the historic buildings of the city which are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, while the last time I discovered its historic shops.
