CULTURAL SPACE | Architecture and exhibition design go hand in hand in the new museum project
This is an ideal building in which to display the port's heritage collection, given the large volume of many of the pieces on display. The breadth of space offered by this former warehouse has allowed us to propose an integrative discourse with the exhibits.
CONTAINER AND CONTENT COMPLETELY RENEWED TO PROJECT THE MUSEUM INTO THE FUTURE
The new museography awakens the senses and transports the visitor to the past and present of the Port and the Serrallo fishing quarter
The refurbishment took a year and cost two and a half million euros
The Joint Commission of the 7th Collaboration Agreement between the Ministry of Public Works and the Ministry of Culture for Joint Action on Historical Heritage awarded 1.75 million euros towards the financing of the new museum
On Saturday 17 July 2021, the Port of Tarragona inaugurated the new Port Museum, an exciting and attractive museographic offer open to the general public.
The latest technological advances in museography help to awaken all your senses and immerse you in the world of the sea and the Port’s past and present.
It should be added that there was a more festive and social part to the inauguration of the Museum with the participation of Tarragona’s folklore elements. They brought a note of colour to an important moment in the tour of the civic and cultural facilities.
During the summer the Port will organise a series of guided tours so that everyone who is interested can get to know the new Port Museum.
Details will be published in the activities agenda on this website and on the @PortTarragona social media.
The Port of Tarragona invites you to immerse yourself in a new space that will undoubtedly awaken all you senses.
