To the north of the Royal Square, in one of the buildings that make up the complex of the Grand Royal Palace, is the museum of Frederic Mares. It contains the collection of the founder of the museum, sculptor and collector of the 20th century Frederik Mares, who died in 1991.
The exposition opened in 1948 is, first of all, an assembly of medieval Spanish sculpture. This section is the most integral, covering a long period and structured in time and place of origin of a statue. Another section contains a collection of crucifixes, paintings on religious themes.
The greatest interest of the public, as a rule, is caused by that part of the exposition where the most different and elegant things are exhibited. Snuffboxes and theater binoculars alternate here with children’s toys and chemist’s bottles. These things seem alive, as if still keeping the spirit of those houses and owners that they once belonged to.
The entrance is 4,20 euros; free of charge: children 0-16 years old, Sat from 3 pm to 8 pm
8, Carrer dels Comtes, Barcelona
