The Museum of the History of Catalonia (Museu d'Història de Catalunya) has one main aim, to show history of Catalonia and make people aware of their shared heritage. This will help them identify with their national history. The museum has been set up to tell the story of Catalonia (Catalunya) and the people that have lived here over the centuries, starting with the earliest times.
The collection of artifacts in the museum is continue to grow, and there are both temporary and permenent exhibitions. The museum also puts on series of lectures and special events to promote and inform about the history of Catalonia.
The Museum of the History of Catalonia is on the Moll del Diposit, the pedestrainised walkway around the northeast corner of the Dársena del Comerc marina. It is quite close to Barceloneta Beach and the Esatcio Tere o de Franca railway station.
