  • A visit must. Excellent exhibitions temporary (currently it's Leonardo da Vinci) and all the sections of the collection permanent very interesting. Especially recommended the space dedicated to the textile factory, including steam and transport machine. A very complete collection of Montesa motorcycles.

  • Is a museum that offers some visits dramatised very interesting and entertaining. It has an interesting review of the textile industry, has a part that deserves to see about the calculation and computers, and much more. An exhibition there on Leonardo da Vinci frankly very well exposed

  • 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.
