MUHBA - The History Museum of Barcelona

The aim of the History Museum of Barcelona (MUHBA) is to preserve the rich heritage of Barcelona, document and study it with the utmost rigour, and disseminate it among the visitors. This work of dissemination is carried out through a combination of different formats and proposals: the organisation of permanent and temporary exhibitions, lectures and debates, seminars, workshops and children's clubs; the publishing of books, urban guides and brochures; the design of city tours and guided visits, and the preparation of signage, the website and a virtual museum. All together this provides a wide offer of activities for all ages. In this way the MUHBA intends to develop a new vision of Barcelona at the beginning of the 21st century.

The History Museum of Barcelona (MUHBA) is based on a new conception of museums, with numerous centres scattered throughout the city which are able to explain the events history of Barcelona in the urban settings where the events took place: MUHBA Temple d'August, MUHBA Plaça del Rei, MUHBA Via Sepulcral, MUHBA Domus de Sant Honorat, MUHBA El Call, MUHBA Santa Caterina, MUHBA Vil·la Joana, MUHBA Park Güell-Casa del Guarda and MUHBA Refugi 307, as well as other projects under development, such as MUHBA Fabra i Coats and MUHBA Casa de l'Aigua. These spaces support and shape the narrative of the history and heritage of the city, which also includes other types of heritage such as food and music, explaining their role in the history of Barcelona. For this reason the museum is also a history and heritage research centre, with regular cycles of conferences, seminars and workshops and various postgraduate courses.
