Spend a day in the center of Barcelona exploring the world of inventors, the things that inspired them, and the inventions they created.
What to Expect
Visit the Museum of Ideas and Inventions in Barcelona. Located in the city center, it is the brainchild of the prestigious inventor Pep Torres and seeks to motivate visitors to come up with ideas or open their minds to new ones.
The museum’s MIBA Collection looks at the funny side of the world of inventions. It showcases peculiar creations from around the world: bright ideas, simple ideas, imaginative ideas, and practical ones that, first and foremost, seek to make the visitor think.
The museum also includes temporary exhibitions, such as Futour, A Tour through the Future. The aim of these exhibitions is to make visitors reflect and react to the subject matter by inviting them to take part in a creative way.
Inside the museum you will also find the Miba Shop; a great place to pick up a unique gift or souvenir. It offers a selection of the museum’s most important inventions, one-off objects, and limited editions sourced from inventors’ fairs around the world or from inventors themselves.
