The background of the museum in Moià

History museum in Moia, near Barcelona

Moià enjoys a rich heritage. In our Municipal Museum there are important photographic, ethnological, pictorial, sculptural, archaeological and palaeontological collections that remind us of the importance of the town from prehistoric times to the contemporary. Part of these collections are exposed in permanent rooms of the building- the natal House of Rafael Casanova and the rest is kept in the Museum.

This year, thanks to the completion of the inventory and acronyms of the funds of the Museum, which is still in progress, it has been calculated that the number of pieces range from 15,000 to 20,000.

We should also mention the importance of the remains from the Neolithic age in different periods of habitat in the cave of El Toll and we must not forget the palaeontological remains found and the search for Neanderthal remains in the cave of Toixonera (besides El Toll) and the archaeological finds from the Epipaleolithic in the neighboring site of Bauma del Gai.
