Maritime Museum of Barcelona is an organization with more than 75 years of history. The aim of the museum is to preserve, study, and disseminate the collections of the major Mediterranean maritime heritage. The collections consist of, among others, various boats, photographs, prints, navigation tools, and workshops. The museum offers different exhibitions related to the marital trade. It is located in the building of the Royal Dockyards on the seafront of the city at the foot of mountain Montjuïc. The building of the museum is one of the most important and best preserved civil Gothic buildings in the world. In 1976 it was classified as a National Monument. Very close to the museum there is a gateway to the medieval city Portal de Santa Madrona. The construction of the building began in the 13th century and was completed in the 14th century. Throughout its existence, the museum has undergone several renovations. In the period between 1957-1966, the authorities of Barcelona commissioned the renovation of the museum's building, which was led by Adolf Florens.
