About Barcelona Ethnological Museum Montjuïc

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.
