  • El Born Centre de Cultura i Memoria -housed in a former El Born market, which opened in 1876. An archaeological site was found in the subsoil, revealing traces of the demarcations of streets and houses Barcelona of the 1700s, serving as a testament both to life in the city and the consequences of the siege of 1714.
  • Museo Frederic Marès – housed in a part of the old Royal Palace of the Counts of Barcelona in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. Its original Verger or courtyard garden still remains intact. It’s a unique collecting museum that preserves the collections assembled by its founder, sculptor Frederic Marès (1893-1991)
  • Museu de la Música – this museum situated in the Auditorium offers various expositions sometimes completely gratis.

  • Museu del Disseny de Barcelona – situated in an extravagant dark grey building on the Glories roundabout. It is the Catalan capital’s centre devoted to the arts of the object and design. The new museum was created as a result of merging the collections from four of the city’s museums: the Museu de les Arts Decoratives (devoted to the decorative arts), the Museu de Ceràmica (ceramics), the Museu Tèxtil i d’Indumentària (textiles and clothing) and the Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques (graphic arts).
