The Barcelona Ethnological Museum is an amalgamation of two societies, the Museum of Industries and the Popular Arts and the Foundation and development of the Ethnological and Colonial Museum.
In 1962 both organisations united to form one museum. In 1973 the museum moved into the current modern purpose built museum space in Montjuïc.
The museum consists of three floors of exhibition space. The ground floor is a large room filled of displays of mostly small items such as figurines, pottery, glassware, carvings, religious artefacts and small paintings. The first floor is dedicated to larger displays of recreations of scenes such as fishing, farming, light industry (weaving, ironmongery) filled with artefacts related to those scenes. The second floor is for temporary exhibitions and contemporary artefacts from the 20th century in Barcelona.
Tickets can be purchased online from the official website and are valid for the Montjuic Ethnological Museum and the Montcada Street Ethnological Museum
Equally, tickets can be purchased in the ticket office that closes 30 minutes before the museum closing time.
Most museums ask you to deposit rucksacks and large bags in the locker area. Museums that do not have lockers do not allow entry with large bags but normally allow people inside with small handbags and 10L rucksacks.
