One of the best things in Barcelona is its amazing and atypical architecture, which never stops developing and improving. Since 1992 when the city was radically changed to accommodate the Olympic games, Barcelona has always striven to induce curiosity in the eyes of those who visit it, with its many museums and breathtaking monuments.
MIBA museum – the museum of ideas and inventions!
Created by Pep Torres in March 2011, the Museum of Ideas and Inventions (MIBA) is a veritable laboratory of creativity and fun. Ingenious inventions are displayed and explained to the curious visitors who cannot help but ponder the implications of those many gadgets on their everyday life.
An example of the strange items one can find in this unique museum is the weighting scale in the entrance, where visitors can compare their own weight to that of celebrities such as Lionel Messi from the FC Barcelona or soprano Montserrat Caballé.
The museum is divided in three parts called ‘Limitless Society’, ‘Reflexionarium’ and ‘Corner of the Absurd’ – those three intriguing universes are guaranteed to fascinate and amaze you.
Enjoy a culture-filled family weekend in Barcelona, and have fun discovering the many marvels of this museum – some of which you can actually purchase!
