La Pauma Museum in Mas de Barberans was opened in May 2010. It has two permanent exhibition rooms. One explains the palm-working process from the plant (palmetto) to the finished item. The other extends the territorial scope to all the towns and villages of Els Ports Natural Park to give information about the social aspects of the activity.

At the museum you can participate in palm (palmetto) and other plant fibre weaving workshops and you can see exhibitions of our own items and others on loan, as well as handicraft demonstrations. On the first weekend in August you can enjoy the activities organised for the Monographic Fibres Fair. The audiovisual entitled La Bruixa Palmira (“Palmira the Witch”) audiovisual is also an enjoyable experience.

An important complement to the museum is the “Plant Fibre Corner”, a didactic area focusing on the vegetable fibres used by humankind for different purposes –tinctorial plants, basketwork, etc.– with the palmetto at centre stage.

All areas are suitable for wheelchairs and there are Spanish and English translations of the texts.
