Catalunya Museum of Science and Technology
Museu de la Ciència i de la Tècnica de Catalunya
The creation of today’s National Museum of Science and Technology was an old Catalan ambition. The Association of Engineers, which drove the project forward from 1976, had already tried to set up a museum at the end of the 19th century. The dream was realized in the 1980s. As part of the museum, the collection of cars, lorries, engines, aeroplanes, motorbikes and bicycles on show at the mNACTEC takes us on a journey through the history of transport, from its beginnings in Spain in 1857 up to our own times. Of the vehicles exhibited, it’s worth pointing out among other things the Locomobile steam car, built in 1899, the 1957 SEAT 600, the 1955 Biscuter, or the 1932 Fairchild aeroplane.
Opening times: 10 AM to 2:30 PM
