Montmeló Municipal Museum

The Montmeló Museum’s permanent exhibition ‘Montmeló, camins i anys’ retraces  6,000 years of history through the archaeological remains that have been documented in the town. The exhibition, on the first floor of the building, is arranged in four main sections that each deal with a different historical period: the Neolithic and the Iberian, Roman and medieval periods. Each section begins with some general historical background before presenting the archaeological remains from the period, which are contextualised by images and texts from the period. The ground floor houses a monographic exhibition devoted to the wall paintings in the first Pompeian style from the Roman settlement at Can Tacó (Mons Observans). The Pedra de Llinars, a prehistoric menhir decorated with an engraving of two ovals is on display in the entrance hall on this floor.
