Museu de les Arts Decoratives
Created in 1932, this historic museum contains a rich and diverse collection of European decorative arts, from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution. In 1995, the museum extended its boundaries with the incorporation of design, thus converting it into the first and only statewide museum concerned with the preservation and exhibition of Spanish industrial design. The collections of the Museu de les Arts Decoratives were created from an important resource of industrial design and decorative art objects, that included salvers, carriages, furniture, wallpaper, clocks, tapestries and glasswork.

It’s also important to mention our Study Galleries which were initiated by the concept to create an area with its own identity, that combines a temporary exhibition, a documentation centre and a museum repository. As well, various objects are assembled according to their typologies and presented in a way that allows visitors to study, contemplate and reflect upon the museums collections.
