International Museum Day

This May 18th, Culture dresses up! The occasion deserves it, as the International Museum Day will be celebrated all around the world, a festivity which gains more and more participants and attention each year. In fact, who has not heard about it? Raise your hands those who have not taken advantage in any of these events to sneak in behind the scenes of any museum, to access to private spaces, to enjoy of a surprise activity or to benefit from a good cultural offer.

In 1977 the International Council of Museums (ICOM) decided to draw attention to these spaces by creating this celebration in order to get museums closer to the general public. The idea has been so successful that 30.000 museums and 192 countries joined this initiative in 2012. What is the key point? The theme discussed changes every year, which allows organisers to raise awareness of any topic related to culture and museums.

Casa de les Punxes is not oblivious to this celebration and this year wants to do it’s bit. On account of this, a special offer will be hold the International Museum Day and Night. During the Day, you will be able to visit us with an audio guided tour through the main floor and the rooftop for 7€. However, if you prefer to visit us at Night, from 7pm you will be able to visit the former areas with a free tour and enjoy, in our rooftop, of your Estrella Damm beer included in your 9€ ticket. Are you going to miss it? Buy your tickets before they run out!

Casa de les Punxes

The spectacular building – revolutionary in both artistic and technical terms – is one of the most iconic structures in Barcelona and an important key to understand Catalan modernism. In 1975, it was given National Historic Landmark status due to its enormous historical, heritage and architecture value.

On a privileged site, is just a 5 minutes walk from Casa Milà-La Pedrera and 10 minutes walk from Casa Batlló and Sagrada Familia, the Casa de les Punxes was built in the early 20th Century by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, who alongside Antoni Gaudí and Lluis Domenech i Muntaner, is considered to be one of the most important architects of Catalan modernism.
