The Port of Tarragona adapted the Costa quay for public use. In this location it is situated the Port of Tarragona Museum, and this guarantees to be responsible for the preservation and promotion of the maritime and port heritage of our coast.

Opened in 2000, the old warehouse Refugi 2, that was built in the mid of 20th century, becomes the ideal building to house the Museum due to the big size of some exhibits and the spaciousness of this old emplacement of goods storage.

Outside the Museum, enjoy the Heritage Route Port of Tarragona. Marked with display panels, provides information on the spot of a dozen port heritage elements in a four kilometres walk from the Port Museum until the La Banya lighthouse, at the end of the Llevant breakwater. This route is sustainable because most of it must be done on foot, by bicycle...

We would like to take you on a journey through the history of our Port, from the time the Romans landed here to the present days.  The commercial, fishing and sportive ports are present, with different vessel typologies, loading machinery, goods, traditional trades, lighthouses…, in other words, the life in the docks. All the faces of the port activities are shown in the educational and familiar leisure offer, in the form of workshops and activities that need to be reserved in advance (museuport@porttarragona.cat).
