Guided tours, concerts, performances and workshops are some of the proposals.
Municipal museums and other cultural facilities are joining the Festa Major de la Mercè with an open-door day. Most of them will be free to visit on the day of the patron saint, September 24, and in some cases, also on earlier or later days. Some others will be organising special activities for the festivity, such as concerts, guided tours, performances and workshops.
One of the places organising additional activities is the Centre d'Art La Capella, which will be programming two live performances on September 21 and 22: the first one will be Alexa, by Jaume Ferrete, and the second one Les coses meves, by Mercè Ortega. The Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món will offer several family workshops and guided tours from September 24 and 26, and the Museu de la Música will offer guided tours of its exhibitions on the day of La Mercè. On September 24, El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria will be offering express and family visits. The Arús Public Library will be doing two special guided tours to the library space and the Sherlock Holmes Collection on September 25 and 26. There will also be guided tours available for all ages between September 23 and 26 at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge, and the Museu Frederic Marès will also offer guided tours on September 25.
Other non-municipal museums and cultural spaces, such as the CaixaForum Barcelona, Casa Vicens Gaudí, Centre d'Arts Santa Mònica, Fundació Antoni Tàpies or the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, to name a few, will offer special activities during the days of the Festa Major.
To take part in the activities and visit the different spaces you will need to book your ticket in advance. Further information on La Mercè can be found here.
