Very beautiful collection of furnitures. The museum gives you an immersive experience of catalan art nouveau interior
Intimate museum with excellent collection. Have some coffee and list through books on modernist Catalan art in a special room.
Unfortunately Google forgets to mention that this museum will regularly be closed during the whole of the month of August. I arrived there while Google claimed it to be open, only to find this information on the sign on the building, while standing in front of locked doors.
