Designing our environment

The aim of this museum is to interpret everyday life objects, together with the ideas, values and attitudes that have come with them from the 14th century to the present day. The aim is to contribute actively to a better understanding of the context in which they were made.

The museum focuses on design, in its wider sense and from a historical point of view. Nowadays design has a more active part in our everyday life, and this is explained in the activities (exhibitions, seminars...) and in the permanent exhibition in the musuem. Objects are not the only important part of design, but also how to create them and interpret them. The museum is based on this concept and its aim is to give value to the everyday life nature of these objects.
