After visiting the Casa Battlo, I headed east, planning to make a shortish stop at the Museo de Historia de Barcelona. Then I had plans for a visit to the Mediterranean Sea and the Chocolate Museum.
I think what I expected from the City History Museum was basically what I'd expect from a good City Museum in the States, a couple of really interesting rooms with artifacts. It's pretty small on a map of Barcelona, and I had trouble even finding it. It's not like, say, the V&A where you see this huge building. Nope. The entrance is modest. And so were my expectations.
I was wrong. So, so very wrong.
You start out in this smallish room with some pottery and Roman statue heads.
