General information

The National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia is the product of the rich and lengthy heritage of scientific and technical innovation and knowledge, and the industrial application of this, as developed in this country over the centuries. Although the plans for a museum dedicated to the dissemination of scientific and technical knowledge, vocational development in these two fields and the preservation of the most substantial material records of the technical creativity of humanity, and the most significant objects invented or manufactured in this country, originally dates back to the early 20th century, it was not until 1984 that they were to take shape in the form of this cultural and social landmark museum.

The mNACTEC and its Territorial Structure, closely linked to Catalan industrial society, as an element of national identity and focus, decentralised, innovative, regionally implemented and with the utmost social return and impact, has over the course of more than 30 years successfully positioned itself as an international flagship and model presenting the uniqueness, specificity and social impact of scientific, technical and industrial culture in Catalonia. Despite the economic difficulties the country finds itself in, the mNACTEC maintains, consolidates and underpins the growth and expansion of this important museum, heritage, cultural and social project with new aims, greater expectations and an even greater dose of renewed enthusiast and interest.

We are faced with a period of social change, forcing us to focus all our efforts on revitalising the Museum’s programme, planning new initiatives and undertaking new activities and new projects in order, if possible, to achieve even greater engagement with our contemporary society, without nonetheless overlooking the important role of the restoration and embellishment of the scientific, technical and industrial culture and heritage of Catalonia, and also maintaining a clear awareness of the strength and drive of our people who, by espousing this heritage, make the mNACTEC a living project that preserves and presents the “spirit” of our society, reminding us where we come from, what we are, and where we aim to go in the future.

You are all welcome to what is your Museum.
