Museu Frederic Marès

The collection is divided into two main sections: the sculpture collection and a collection of everyday objects and collectors' items, called the Gabinet del Coleccionista.

The sculpture collection features works of art from around Spain spanning the pre-Roman period to the 19th century, and includes important exhibits from the Middle Ages and polychrome religious carvings. Spanish sculptures from the Renaissance and baroque periods are also widely represented and there are examples of works from the main Spanish schools of sculpture, from the medieval period to modern times.

The "Gabinet del Col·leccionista" showcases a series of handcrafted objects that bear witness to the everyday lives of our ancestors from the 15th to 19th centuries and is divided into three galleries.

The "Sala Femenina" is one of the galleries that best represents the museum Frederic Marès's collection and bears witness to women's lives during the romantic era. It contains a collection of fans, combs, jewellery, clothing and other fashion accessories.

The "Sala de les Diversions", features toy theatres, automata, toys and retains all the charm and evocative power of the entertainments of yore.

The "Sala del Fumador" features a wide variety of pipes, an item that attained great levels of sophistication in terms of the quality of its materials and unusual shapes.
