Vista de una de les sales de l'exposició


Located in the Colony’s old cooperative, it offers a global vision on what the estate was, how its people lived and the works of Antoni Gaudi.

The permanent exhibition has five areas are Industrial Colonies, The mill, People, Colonia Güell and Gaudi's church.

Ground floor is dedicated to the history of indusctrial Colonias in Catalonia and, in particular, to that of the Colonia Güell. A 12-minute video shows the daily life of workers in the Colonia Güell through the eyes of a little girl.

The most interesting item on the top floor is a reproduction of the model designed by Gaudi to visualize the church’s structure in three dimensions. This technique, invented by Gaudi in order to build his crypt, was used, along with several others developed during this time, in the construction of the Sagrada Familia.
