The Museu del Disseny is the most important museum in Barcelona dedicated to design, fashion and decorative arts.
The museum is housed since December 2014 in the Edifici Disseny HUB, a new iconic building designed by MBM architects and located on Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes.
The Museu del Disseny collections were previously conserved in four different museums: the Museu Tèxtil i Indumentària (Museum of tissues and dresses), the Museu de Ceràmica (Museum of ceramics), the Museu de les Arts Decoratives (Decorative arts museum) and the Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques (Gallery of Graphic arts).
The permanent exhibition of the museum is divided into four thematic sections, each located on a different floor level: industrial design, decorative arts, fashion and graphic design.
The exhibitions feature a large number of rare and interesting objects dating from 3rd century to present day as well as documents, videos and interactive exhibits that help to contextualize the exposed artifacts.
