Discover the Digital Museum of Modernism at Casa Amatller

Casa Amatller, the iconic building that graces the city, houses the Digital Museum of Modernism that offers a unique experience for visitors.

Immersing itself in the history of the city and the modernist movement, this new space combines virtual reality and immersive activities to provide a fascinating insight into the Barcelona of yesteryear.

What is the Digital Museum of Modernism like?

The museum occupies two floors and has an impressive 2000 square meters dedicated to the exhibition.

On the upper floor, visitors can enjoy a permanent exhibition that tells the story of Barcelona in 1900, focusing on the founding of the house and the Amatller family.

This exhibition is divided into different rooms, each with its own conceptual approach.

From audiovisual projections to interactive spaces designed especially for children, every corner offers an opportunity to meet the main characters of the era.

The lower floor of the museum is used for temporary exhibitions.

To inaugurate this space, the exhibition “Dracs del modernisme” is presented, a narration about the presence of the dragon in the city and its relationship with the Catalan identity.

One of the highlights of this exhibition is an immersive experience that is distinguished by a special dome.

In addition, visitors can also enjoy a virtual reality experience that will allow them to take a magical flight with one of the little dragons of the house.

About this building, an example of Catalan modernism

Casa Amatller was originally built for Antoni Amatller, a chocolate entrepreneur.

The masterpiece of the architect Puig i Cadafalch is inspired by the Dutch houses of the 17th century and is distinguished by its typical Flemish gable covered with ceramics.

The interior façade and entrance are adorned with sculptures by Eusebi Arnau depicting chocolate makers at work, almond trees in blossom and a reference to the Amatller surname, as well as the figure of Sant Jordi slaying the dragon.

In addition to his passion for chocolate, Antoni Amatller also loved photography.

His daughter transformed the family home into an art institute, and a selection from the archive of her father’s immense collections is on display on the first floor.

This fusion of technology and cultural heritage will transport you to a bygone era and leave you with a renewed appreciation for the art and history of Barcelona.
