In the 13th century, Catalonia was a powerhouse at sea, and many of the kingdom's ships were built in the mammoth Drassanes (Royal Shipyards) in Barcelona. The city's greatest medieval civic structure, the long-lined, elegant Drassanes now houses the Maritime Museum, a fascinating, kid-friendly place that explores Catalonia's seafaring history through reconstructions of ships and fishing boats and interactive exhibits. The museum also has a seaside annex out by the port, which includes a three-masted schooner from 1918; you're free to roam. Currently these are the only parts of the museum that can be visited, until a renovation of the main building is completed by the end of 2012.—Updated by Suzanne Wales

Opening times vary until renovation work is completed; call ahead.
