Evarist Arnús and Badalona (1820-1890)

From October 8th to November 29th

8 October 2020 - 19:00 a 29 November 2020 - 14:00

Open from Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 2 pm and from 5 to 8 pm; Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm.


On the occasion of the bicentenary of the birth of Evarist Arnús i Ferrer (Barcelona 1820-1890), the Museum dedicates an exhibition and a serie of activities to him, since he is a key figure in the history of our country and the our city.

His relationship with Badalona began in a very prosaic way: he bought a large estate there – the current Parc de Ca l’Arnús – as a form of investment and to give the image of solvency that required his dedication to the world of the stock market and finance. He used the property for leisure, and soon became involved in some civic affairs to the point of becoming a true benefactor of the village.

The exhibition, which presents pieces from both the Museum’s collections and borrowed from other institutions, brings us closer to his biography, reviews the history of his Badalona estate, explains his philanthropic work in our city, and recalls the gratitude of Badalona in recognition for its generosity.
