  • The Museum is too broad to tell all the details. At the beginning we find an exhibition of how advanced the energy production, from animal power, electricity. It explains in detail how various mechanisms, steam, combustion engines... There are models to see that running in action, as well as several machines and antique pieces. It also highlights the exhibition of motorcycles and antique cars, and the steam engine from the factory, where we can go to the base of the fireplace. We can also see the process that was followed to manufacture fabric and the evolution of computers into the computers that we know today.

  • Installed in a former textile factory, have a broad vision of how the industry and technique has evolved during the 19th and 20th, ideal to enjoy with family and calm, highly recommended. The visit in a day is just if you want to enjoy and appreciate, very careful exposure and recreated the different times.

  • He is currently a Museum, the Museum of science and technology of Catalonia. This museum is housed in what was an old textile factory, one of the most important in the city, and which is preserved almost such that that when it was built.

  • It's good museam has large collection of cars and bikes produced used in Catalonia, you need at least 5-6hours to cover entire museam, on first Sunday of every month entry was free in 2017. If you are visiting on weekends please check timing and start your visit accordingly so you can cover entire museam.
  • No translations. Everything is in Spanish, so it's pretty bad for tourists. If you can speak Spanish, you might enjoy most of the things even though the layout of the place is rather weird.
  • Nice and large museum but virtually none of the interactive exhibits work. Broken touchscreens, buttons not working,.. Lost a lot of its appeal that way.
  • 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
