Christmas in the museum


These holidays, come to the museum! We have lots of activities for all publics.  You can also download the tale of Little Red Riding Hood to read it and paint it with the family.  And for those of you who like photography, you can participate in the contest #CapsaEntròpica_concurs on Instagram. Do you feel like having a go?

Christmas Games, concert given by the Orfeó Català

On 17th December, the museum will be kicking off the Christmas festivities with this family concert, free of charge, interpreted by more than 100 singers from the 3 youngest choirs from the Escola Coral of the Orfeó Català: the Cor Petits, the Cor Mitjans and the Cor Infantil.

A selection of songs that will transport us to a universe in which childhood games and warm moments of happiness that we have with the children at Christmas, will be the protagonists.

Family workshop.  The big banquet

The artist, textile designer and silk-screen printer Julia Pelletier has designed a family workshop for these days of Christmas that will consist of a major installation inspired by the still lifes of the museum in which the families will work on the topic of food.

A well-laid table will be the starting point to create a drawn and volumetric meal and, at the end of the workshop, the participants will take away with them a souvenir-menu of this major feast of still lifes.

The workshop will take place from 17th to 21st January and is thought for families with children over 3 years old.

Medieval Christmas

On Saturdays 23rd and 30th December, coinciding with the time of free entrance to the museum, we will comment on the works of the collection of Romanesque and Gothic art with a Christmas theme: works which talk of Nativity, Epiphany and the Virgin Mary.

Guerau Gener, Nativity, 1407-1411

Temporary exhibitions and permanent collection

Ramon Pichot. From the Quatre Gats to the Maison Rose

In Barcelona he had worked with Ramon Casas, Santiago Rusiñol, Joaquim Mir and Isidre Nonell. He lived at the epicentre of the international art of the period, and was surrounded by notable figures from the Parisian cultural world, such as Pablo Picasso or Guillaume Apollinaire.

The museum’s collection

The museum counts on the most important collection of Catalan art in the world, from medieval art until the present day.  In the Museu Nacional you can see the best collection of Romanesque mural painting  and the most representative artists of Catalan modernism, such as, for example, Gaudí or Casas. The Gothic art and the collection of photography complete the expositive tour.
Currently, the collection of Renaissance and Baroque, is closed to the public given that we are carrying out the works for a new presentation to be open at the beginning of the year 2018.
