Each of the 4 floors of this museum is geared towards a specific theme related to design.
I especially enjoy the evolution of fashion, with its beautiful costumes, haute couture, underwear, brasieres, etc, etc!
This time, on the ground floor, there was an incredibly interesting exhibit on the importance of wood from prehistoric times to nowadays!
Very well done with artifacts as well as videos of craftsmen making tools out of wood. And a life size model of an ecological house.
Hats Off!

It was recommended to me by a local and I didn't know what to expect. When I arrived, I discovered the museum is separated on four floors, each with a different theme. I like art and design and found both in size, scale and fun here. From gadgets to furniture to clothing...I could have spent more time at this museum. It was definitely worth the visit, is affordable, is easy to reach by metro or on foot (if you like to walk) and I recommend it. And there are cafes and bars nearby if you need a break before or after.

I am very interested in design and it was a very enriching experience. Despite not beeing aware that two of the permanent exhibitions were closed, Product and Graphic desing (which I deeply wanted to visit), the museum kept me hooked on many of the pieces that I could gaze at.
Moreover, it is also fantastic that the ticket I bought was worth for two visits. This gives me the opportunity to go back to some temporary art and architecture exhibitions that were not available on the day of my visit.
Maybe adding the description of each object in other languages could make it easier for visitors who don't speak Catalan.

Fantastic design museum. Four floors of very different stuff taking you through a history of Catalan design. The modernist stuff is amazing and beautifully displayed. The visual design floor was really interesting - loved the Olympics posters. Great cafe as well.

The Museum of design is located in a hypermodern building next to the Glories metro station and the Torre Agbar. We went there to see the Collections of Decorative and Author-Centered Art from III. to XX. century, a permanent exhibition located on the second floor. The collections are impressive, very well chosen: pieces of III. century coptic church-clothes, fine ceramic tiles from the time of Caliphate of Cordoba, wooden chest and bedside painting with christian motives, pocket watches, miniatures, and many, many more...

This museum shows the evolution of the decorative arts in chronological order, starting from the Romanesque period of art.

Other periods are the Gothic age, the Renaissance period, the Baroque age, the Rococo age, the Neoclassic period, the Neoclassic Imperial period, the Romantic period, the Historic Romantic period, the Modernist period, the Novecentismo and Art Deco periods, and industrial design that happened between 1930 and 1990. There are explanations for all the exhibits. Most of the exhibits came from Catalunya.

So this is a very interesting museum.

Came here to see the David Bowie is exhibition & was blown away by how amazing the place was,helpful staff who spoke english & pointed us in the right direction to the exhibition itself,the curators are the V & A from London who i have to say have done such a fantastic job in the way they have set this.You can guess that you go from David's humble beginings right through to Blackstar & from begining to end you are in wonderment,staff are placed all around the exhibition prohibiting any photos or touching of any of the exhibits.
The exhibition itself finishes on 25th September where i think returns to London,if you get a chance to see this wonderful exhibition,fan,super fan or just an admirer of David's work you must see it to believe it and trust me you will not regret it.

Quite a journey out on the Metro to get to the gardens of the Palau Reial to enjoy the gardens and view the exhibits in the museums. The gardens were green, cool and pleasant for a walk.

BUT - we had gone predominantly for the museums, but these had moved to a completely different venue. We were NOT happy.
