Museu del Pessebre de Catalunya de Montblanc Montblanc
The museum building is conceived as a manger of great proportions, prepared to house its visitors who, symbolically, act as its figures. In the artistic field, in this museum, the best artists and craftsmen of the territory, of the environment and of the moment have worked: set designers, painters, architects, engineers, masons, stonemasons, sculptors, carpenters, cabinetmakers, glassmakers, iron forgers, plumbers, mechanics, locksmiths, technicians, illuminators, electricians and computer scientists, among others.
The Nativity Museum of Catalonia is a space to learn about and live a tradition that has survived since the mid-18th century. In this museum, figures and dioramas are distributed over the three exhibition floors to offer a journey through this popular tradition from the point of view of the present.
The mission of the Museum is to preserve, exhibit and study these artistic manifestations in order to be explained to the more than 5,000 visitors who, on average, visit the museum annually on weekends, with its peak being Christmas and Easter.
Focused on family, child, school and elderly tourism, the Nativity Museum of Catalonia welcomes national and international audiences, with children, especially, the one most linked to annual face-to-face and online activities.
Currently, the museum is a reality thanks to the impulse of the Montblanc Nativity Scene Association, in collaboration with the Catalan Federation of Nativity Scenes.
