  • Excellent museum, the building is and old textile factory and is fantastic. The computer exhibition is great. It is ideal for young people as it is very interactive. There is free parking.
  • Beautiful old textile factory building. Great architecture. Interesting things to see in the museum
  • Modernist factory changed to a very lighted museum. It's great!
  • Excellent industrial museum
  • Impressive spinning factory, the Vapor Aymerich, which hosts one of the most important museums of Catalonia. With a series of fixed and temporary exhibitions we can find many examples of how the evolution of technology and science, with human ingenuity, have allowed to resolve different difficulties that the companies have been finding over time. Currently there is a temporary exhibition on mathematics, as well as a on Leonardo da Vinci, among others. The space is wide, the posters provide information you need in order to get a complete idea of what you want to represent. Very interesting to see the railway model, the process of steam in the prints that you can see in the basement and the permanent exhibitions there, as for example that of the history of computing and computer science, a Montesa motorcycles factory on, with an important collection of historical models or one of the largest and oldest of the Museum on energy. Highly recommended to go with the family if you have young children and with curiosity.
