The museum is located on the southern edge of the old town and at the end of the Rambla, and has an extensive collection of ships and boats and a large exhibition on the construction of medieval sailing ships.

AGA IAMU 2018 - The Gala dinner
The Gala dinner will take place at the Casa Llotja de Mar, in the Saló de Contractacions (Contracts Hall). The Saló de Contractacions is the most distinguished architectural piece of Casa Llotja de Mar, and has been conserved since the medieval period. It is a large hall of 14m-high ceilings, with four columns and six arches that sustain the wooden beams of the upper floor. The scallop shells on the arches alternate with the shields of the king and the city of Barcelona, as it was King Peter III and the Consell de Cent government institution who promoted the building’s construction. This hall has been witness to the first opera held in Barcelona, the Jocs Florals historically related poetry contests and other cultural events. Casa Llotja de Mar is located on the sea front in the historical center of Barcelona and one of the most significant and splendid monuments representing the economy and culture of the city. It was built in the second-half of the 14th century, the most brilliant period of Catalan Gothic
