The Barcelona Museum of Ethnology is an anthropology museum that shares reflections on contemporary society through both scientific knowledge and aesthetics, where objects are the starting point on a path towards meaning that appeals to visitors to interpret their social surroundings.
The Museum of Ethnology aims to be a space for society to participate and reflect on itself. Anthropology is the science of the people, and the Museum reflects on people to share knowledge with the people. Therefore, it aims to make people the protagonist and for this to be felt. This relationship the Museum seeks out with society is part of the paradigm of social museology.
