If you visit Barcelona, stop by the RAMM (Retro Auto Moto Museum).


Over an area of 1,500 m² spread over three floors, you will find more than 80 historic vehicles from the United States, Europe and former Soviet countries. The museum is specialised in missing brands, and has cars as interesting and rare as Le Zebre, Delahaye, Benjamin, La Licorne, Adler, Lea Francis, Hotchkiss, Volga, Henkel... and also motorbikes of missing brands: BSA, Terrot, Motobecane, The Vindec, James, Monet & Goyon, AJS, Ariel, etc.

The museum is located at Carrer Sant Pere Mes Alt 41, in the Born district -very close to the amazing Palau de la Música Catalana-, just 9 minutes walk from Plaça de Catalunya. Admission for adults costs 8 euros, and it's open every day of the week from 10am to 7pm. You'll find more practical information on their website: www.ramm.com.es


To be honest, it's on a narrow pedestrian street, where the last thing you'd expect to find is a car museum, but given the theme of the museum, I found the building to be quite coherent after all, and I'd say it helps to put it in context.

If you really like cars, motorcycles and technology, you'll have a great time in this museum, the vehicles are exposed so you can look around, and if you are lucky enough to visit it at a quiet hour, maybe you can chat with Vitaly, in charge of the museum and restore and care for the cars on display, a passionate who explained to me a thousand and one curiosities and anecdotes of this interesting museum and its cars. If you also know or have information about any of the rare models on display, the museum will be happy to share it with them.


I'm sure you'll enjoy my visit as much as I did, so much so that I think I'll be back soon.
