It was built at the beginning of the 19th century as a workshop and home for animportant manufacturer from Terrassa.

Original mural paintings have been preserved from this period. Major refurbishment in 1911 converted the building into a model for middle-class housing in Terrassa in an eclectic style within the Modernist movement.

Of particular importance are paintings by Alexandre de Riquer which are presently on display in the dining room. In the different rooms of this building, visitors appreciate collections of great interest such as the Salvans collection of Far Eastern art, paintings by Martinez Lozano, drawings by Mateu Avellaneda and the legacies of the writers Agusti Bartra and Ferran Canyameres

Excellent museum based on an modernist house of industrial business owners. It conserves lots of awesome details of that age, a beautiful garden, and a little piece of history of the city. Also it's a quiet place inside the city center and makes you feel in an other place meanwhile you are inside.

Terrassa was an ugly factory town when I first visited in the late 70s. It's astounding to visit now, with its shady pedestrian streets in the city centre and its "chain of museums", several of which –including the romanic and pre-romanic churches of Sant Pere, a 12th-century tower, 14th-century cloister, and this elegant Modernist house with its large garden space...
