Less noteworthy museums, but still interesting

In Barcelona you will find many great, major museums, which are certainly a "must" for a visit to Barcelona. But many smaller museums also present their exhibits here. These museums often deal with topics that are generally of specialist interest, and are well worth a visit if you are particularly interested in one of these topics.
