#25 of 105 in Museums in Barcelona
The Museu del Disseny de Barcelona (Catalan, English: "Barcelona Design Museum"), is a new center of Barcelona's Institute of Culture, which works to promote better understanding and good use of the design world, acting as a museum and laboratory. It focuses on 4 branches or design disciplines: space design, product design, information design and fashion.


The Museum is the result of the merging of several previous existing museums, such as the Museu de les Arts Decoratives, the Museu Tèxtil i d'Indumentària and the Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques collection. The opening of the new headquarters, located on Plaça de les Glòries, next to Torre Agbar, was set gradually during 2014.

  • The design museum is an interesting walk through historical designs of clothing, furniture, appliances and media communications. We also enjoyed the current exhibit featuring the best designs of the year. This place is huge and is a nice respite from the heat of Barcelona but isn’t a “must see” place.
  • Beautiful museum, very modern. The third floor exhibit looks like it's closed but you have to pull back the chains to get in. It's also air conditioned and free on Sundays!!
