Hotel magnate Jordi Clos has spent much of his life collecting ancient Egyptian artefacts, brought together in this private museum. It’s divided into different thematic areas (the pharaoh, religion, funerary practices, mummification, crafts etc) and boasts an interesting variety of exhibits.

There are statuary, funereal implements and containers, jewellery (including a fabulous golden ring from around the 7th century BC), ceramics, and even a bed made of wood and leather. In the basement is an exhibition area and library, displaying volumes including original editions of works by Carter, the Egyptologist who led the Tutankhamun excavations. On the rooftop terrace is a pleasant cafe, and there is a combined ticket with the Museu Cultural del Món (€12).
