The Palace of the marquis of Llio preserved his initial structure. This museum recalls the evolution of the textile art in 1500 years.
The Textile and Clothing Museum occupies two adjacent buildings: the Palau Nadal and Palau dels Marquesos de Llió; the latter retains some of its original 13th-century wooden ceilings.
Items on display here include medieval Hispano-Arab textiles, some liturgical vestments and the city’s embroidery and lace collection.
The real highlight, though, is the fashion's history – from the baroque to the 20th century – that collector Manuel Rocamora donated in the 1960s, and which is one of the finest collections of its type anywhere.
Recent important donations include one from Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, who is famous for the 1958 babydoll dress and pill-box hat.
The museum shop is a great place to pick up presents, and there’s a nice café outside in the courtyard.

Where are the textile museum and museum of 20th cent art [not contemporary ]]in Barcelona ? The textile museum seems to have moved twice in last 15 years and the modern art collection which was displayed in Parque Cuitadella has just vanished -nobody seems to know anything about them ! In general the museums in barcelona are expensive-
The Contemporary art museum is charging full 10 euro fee even though half the collection was closed.
The Tapies foundation is very disapointing with only a handfull of his works to see -definitely not worth 10 euro fee. The Mila house of Gaudi ,is dramatic but very expensive at 18 euro . The Picasso Museum was very rewarding and well worth the fee..Another private collection of sculpture , named'' museum of Modern art ''nearby is interesting if you like figuritive work.

  5. textile museum barcelona - Karen Vontillius, Danmark (25 Aug 2009 - 15:28)

    I have just been in Barcelona and we wanted to visit the textile museum. We were told that i moved two years ago. What adress has it now?
    Karen

  6. hours of operation - Gillian (13 Oct 2008 - 20:38)

    Most of the guide books say that this museum closes at 3 pm on Saturdays. I really wanted to visit but did not given the early closing. I wish that the info was consistent. The lines at the I kiosks in Barcelona are long so asking a quick question means lining up for a long time. I guess I'll have to visit on my next trip.

    Regards,

  7. re Visit to Museum last Year - Lesley Hayward (2 Oct 2007 - 11:52)

    Just to let you know that my students did very well in their GCSE Art/Textiles at the end of their course. They included images from the costumes they had seen into their sketchbooks and found them an inspiration in their own designs! [100% A-C for the whole class! - and it's a Comprehensive School!]

  8. New Oper Costumes - Lesley Hayward (30 Oct 2006 - 16:10)

    I took a small group of four GCSE Art/Textiles students to the Textile Museum last week. The costumes in the permanent collection were very interesting but the Opera costumes were FANTASTIC!!!
