NEW Design Museum in town

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The new Design Museum opened its doors in December in an impressive new building on “Plaça de les Glòries”, a whole new corner of Barcelona to explore, just next to the 22@ innovation district. It merges collections of several city museums into one: historic decoration arts, product, fashion and product design, graphic design and author arts (jewellery, ceramic etc..), not to forget the architectural design of the buidling itself. All very well presented and a pleasure to cruise the modern designed building by its escalators with a view over the “plaça” and the city. If you still have some energy left, just for the contrast, take a look at the other side of the road into the Encants flea market. Mega messy but “catch a curiosity” assured!
