  • In a modernist building that housed a textile factory, we found a very interesting and well organized exhibitions. Is visit the factory, with the machinery, the changing rooms, them different facilities, with what continue all the process of this important industry. Perfectly set, we can see even the offices of the directives, as well as posters reminding along dependencies workers the need for cleaning, order, punctuality... We will even know the salaries of different categories of workers. Then we will see an interactive exhibit on the evolution of the technique throughout history, reaching today and the problem of climate change. Comes complete with an exhibition of automobiles and motorcycles antique, some of them unique pieces.

  • Really impressed by the care and exposed. The motorcycle "Montesa" collection is superb. Many vintage cars. Good collection of typewriters from the beginning of its history. And what really left me impressed, is the building where it is located. A former factory of modernist style that and only that is worth visiting.

  • Architectural jewel of the Catalan industrial, with a very good conservation and with several permanent and temporary exhibitions. Can you find out how it was a factory of 1900, visitors the various parts and many machines of the era. The dramatised tours are fun and dates as the Festa Major de Terrassa or the modernist fair, you can visit the roof of the factory. A sensational treasure.

  • This Museum of Terrassa defines very well the textile industry in the region in the last century. Apart from the textile have permanent exhibition of Montesa, the first cars, planes, trucks, etc... It is a good place to spend the morning with your child. The first Sunday of each month admission is free.

  • Very complete and varied collections, worthy of a great Museum. The best of Spain in its genre.

  • The 1st time I went had no expectation about what they offered. But upon entering, I must say that 2 hours later were still excited (clarifying that we have 33 and 38 years and we've been alone). I've had to return because it is amazing. I recommend go well early because I have taken 3 hours the 2nd time and I have not come to explore it before closing. As a negative thing I say that close at noon for the Museum not works very well given its extension and forces you to wait a long time or lose the halfway point if you got to half time. Another thing is that if there are few people, some interactions are switched off as it happened to me with that of the human body on my 2nd visit.

  • The enclosure where the Museum (a former factory) seems charming, but if can find as cultural part was not to my liking. For my taste, there are better museums and more dynamic.
