Gaudí Centre Reus

Interpretation centre
Museum centre dedicated to Antoni Gaudí, the city's beloved son. The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through the artist's life and his relationship with Reus and gives insight into his creative method. Moreover, it offers the possibility of interacting with his work thanks to state-of-the-art audiovisual technology.

Equipped with modern infrastructures and the most advanced audiovisual technology, the Gaudí Centre Museum aims to give its visitors a closer look at the work of Antoni Gaudí via the use of their five senses. Visitors can experience the physiognomy of Gaudi's shapes through touch, sound and sight, and enter into the personal concept of reality that inspired this artist's works.

Nature, as the main source of inspiration for his work, is present in each one of the shapes that can be seen and touched so as to represent this master artist's imagination. The museum thus intends to attract children, young people and adults and make them into participants in the most unique and representative works in all of Catalonian art.

The three-storey building gathers all the elements needed to understand the work of this artist from Reus. The first floor deals with the relationship he had with the city of his birth. Here some of his manuscripts and drafts are displayed. It also provides a journey through the Modernist works left by Gaudí as a legacy.

The second floor is wholly dedicated to his artistic ideas. Visitors can discover the secrets of his visual imagination through interactive models and equipment. Lastly and on the third floor, we can see a multi-screen audiovisual show and touch models of the key works that have made the artist such a universal icon.

Furthermore to these facilities, the museum has a temporary exhibition hall, the Bassegoda room, a gift shop and the Gaudí Gaudir restaurant, on the top floor and with splendid views of the old quarter of Reus.
