The Museum of World Cultures

Action-packed Sundays at Barcelona's Ethnological Museum and Museum of World Cultures

The activities on offer range from guided tours to workshops and shows.

Sundays are not for resting, at least at the Ethnological Museum of Barcelona (Pg. Santa Madrona 16-22) and the Museum of World Cultures (C/ Montcada 12) . Their Els diumenges ens movem programme is turning Sundays into the best day of the week, especially for the youngest members of the family.

For example, Sunday 11 February sees a workshop at the Museum of Cultures of the World called Decorem la casa en comú, based on the tradition in Papua New Guinea of building houses that are decorated with special symbols in which the problems of the community are resolved. On 18 March, the same museum will host a workshop and performance on the shadow puppets of Java. Meanwhile, on 15 April the Ethnological Museum is offering the opportunity to get to know the museum in a different way, by discovering legends inspired by its exhibited objects.

On Sundays you can also enjoy a wide variety of guided tours, such as one called Mons fantàstics i mons real, which compares the beliefs of differentcontinents with some of those held by our contemporary society. It will take place at the Museum of World Cultures on 11 March, 13 May and 8 July. Another guided tour on offer is De la casa a la festa, a new way of getting to know the Ethnological Museum.

We recommend that you sign up for these activities in advance. You can do so by phone on 93 256 23 00, or by email at reservesmeb@bcn.cat. Remember that admission to these museums is free on the first Sunday of every month and every Sunday from 3pm.
