The heritage collection of the Museum of Granollers is varied, and therefore pluri-disciplinary. It includes archaeology, art, the decorative arts, ethnography and numismatics.

The first and second floor of the museum house the halls used for permanent exhibitions, where the different collections in the museum’s holdings are displayed, accompanied by informational and educational projects. The ground floor is the temporary exhibition hall, which can be expanded with the Espai Obert (basement level), which can also be used as a small independent exhibition hall.

Spearheaded by civil society, the museum was created by the Town Hall in 1932 with a collection made up of around 30 works of art and sundry objects.

Designed by the architects Bosch, Botey and Cuspinera, this new building, which opened in 1976, is built on the land where the headquarters of the Unió Liberal, shuttered by the Franco regime in 1939, used to be. It is one of the few museum facilities from the 1970s designed for this purpose in Catalonia.
