The Museum of the History of Catalonia (MHC) was created in 1996 to promote the awareness and knowledge of the history and culture of Catalonia, both nationally and internationally. Its vocation as a national institution means that it aims to be a museum of society, encouraging the dialogue between history and the other social sciences, and with interest in contemporary events. It is cultural centre which is open and accessible to all, and its programmes offer users the chance to learn, debate and reflect as well as to enjoy their visit.
