mNACTEC Territorial Network

28 science museums to understand and interpret the industrialisation of Catalonia

The Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia views as one of its key objectives the preservation of industrial heritage so as to be able to explain the industrialisation of Catalonia as one of the most significant characteristics of the nation's personality. It is for this reason that the mNACTEC Territorial Structure was created, grouping together different museums, each of which has a singular position with regard to the others, explaining a specific topic or industrialisation process in a particular region of Catalonia, taking into account both the technical aspects and social and cultural features. The museums belonging to this structure explain the industrialisation of Catalonia by means of their collections and/or museum exhibits presenting the different production activities that have existed and of which comprehensible remains still exist, comprising our industrial heritage.
