The Museum of Design DHUB in Barcelona will have a direct entrance to the subway

The Museo del Disseny DHUB, one of Barcelona’s cultural and creative reference points, is preparing for an innovation that will mark a milestone in the way visitors access this space.

Within the framework of the renovation works that are transforming the Glòries area in Barcelona, the construction of a subway station directly connected to the interior of the museum is being carried out.

This unique feature in the Catalan capital will allow passengers to exit the metro and immediately find themselves at the entrance of the gallery, an unprecedented experience in Barcelona.

The works, which began at the end of February and are expected to be completed by the end of June, have the main objective of integrating the Glòries metro station with the DHUB Design Museum.

The works around the Museum of Disseny DHUB of Barcelona

This initiative is part of a larger project aimed at revitalizing the area, turning Plaça de Glòries into a new green space for the city.

During the construction period, the metro exit on line 1 at Glòries station, located in Badajoz street, will remain closed, but alternatives have been established to ensure accessibility for users.

As an alternative, the exit from Plaça de les Glòries has been enabled through the Mercat dels Encants area. In this way, two operational accesses are maintained: one on Avinguda Meridiana, with elevator, which connects directly to the Diagonal-Badajoz area in front of the DHUB, and another in Plaça de les Glòries.

These measures are intended to minimize the inconvenience to subway users while the work is being carried out to connect to the museum.

The ultimate goal of this innovation is to design a spacious lobby that serves as a prelude to the equipment of the Museum of Disseny DHUB. This direct entrance from the metro will allow fluid and convenient access for visitors, creating an integrated experience between public transportation and culture.

The DHUB, as the headquarters of the Design Museum, has the mission of preserving, interpreting and exhibiting its collections, as well as promoting promotional policies in the fields of design, architecture, innovation and technology.

Currently, while the works continue, the exit of the metro line 1 in Glòries is from Meridiana Avenue and from Glòries square, with recommendations from the Barcelona City Council to head towards the Eixample.

It is expected that in a matter of months, this direct connection between the metro and the Museo del Disseny DHUB will be a tangible reality, offering visitors a unique and convenient way to access this important cultural space in Barcelona.
