A wonderful museum to visit in Barcelona
I visited the museum with my 9 years old son who had just studied the ancient Egyptian civilization and How old Egyptians could brilliantly keep and preserve their bodies for thousands of years and prepare for the journey to the after life .. He also learned about many king and queens , Gods and Goddess in the time of pharos .. all that and more he saw with his awn eyes in a great presentation in that wonderful museum in the heart of Barcelona .. that surely was worth the visit .
