Catalonia Railway Museum Vilanova i la Geltrú

The 21st century section

<p>Interior temporary exhibition room.</p>

Interior temporary exhibition room.

The 21st century section was created following the priority objective of completely renovating this centre: the old Steam Locomotive Workshop in Vilanova i la Geltrú, where the Museum is located today. These facilities, which were productive for a long time, today show future generations what the railway and its services represented for historical and industrial development in our country. In addition, the space has meant a new exhibition area for the Museum which rehabilitated this 210 m2 depot in 2001. The renovation was made in accordance with current museological and exhibition criteria, whilst respecting the architectural and functional principles with which the original building was constructed. Currently it houses the temporary exhibition room of the Museum where every year a programme of two or three exhibitions is displayed.
