Mataró Museum is a patrimonial institution whose purpose is the safeguarding, study, conservation, research and dissemination of archaeological, natural and building heritage related to Mataró. It is divided between its headquarters in Can Serra and three extensions: Ca l’Arenas arts centre, Can Marfà Gènere de Punt and the Roman Villa of Can Llauder.
Can Serra is the ancestral home of Jeroni Serra Arnau, built in the Renaissance style in 1565. It retains its original structure and the large central hall on the first floor, alongside its original wooden panelling.
The permanent exhibition presents two of the thematic axes of the exhibition program related to the history of Mataró:
Iluro, Roman city takes us back to the city’s Roman past, a period we have been able to learn more about thanks to recent excavations.
The Mataró, a Mediterranean city exhibition provides a journey through the history of the city from mediaeval and modern times until the present day.
