To celebrate this new stage, the museum is staging an informative concert and a display of the teaching activities offered by its new spaces. Free entry until 4 December.
The Museu Etnològic de Barcelona reopens to the public on Sunday 4 October with a fully refurbished space and exhibitions.
The Museu Etnològic de Barcelona is a space for understanding and reflecting on our society through comparison with other places and other times. The museum, which dates from 1942, has been closed for renovation since 2011.
To celebrate the start of this new stage there will be an informative concert performed by Cordes del Món, the museum's resident orchestra, comprising 12 musicians who combine classical instruments and compositions with others from folklore from around the world. The concert will take place in the Laribal rose gardens, a unique and little-known setting on Montjuïc, part of the museum's more immediate surroundings. The pieces will be interspersed with educational explanations and the orchestra will be introducing some very special guests.
On Sunday morning, the inside of the museum will be hosting three simultaneous workshops: Carles Alcoi will be showing how to make baskets while telling stories, Oriol Ripoll will be looking at different traditional games and Kim Arnal will be leading proceedings in the Sentir el patrimoni (Feel the Heritage) tactile space where visitors can enjoy a sensory experience with real ethnographic objects.
