2 March - 25 September 2011. This exhibition makes an historical study of the water supply to the city of Barcelona and asks those who take running water for granted to imagine the chaos that would ensue if a modern city suddenly was bereft of water.
As a point of reference the exhibition uses Barcelona's "water revolution" over a 100 year period from 1867 - 1967, during which time the availability of water for domestic use became widespread in the city. Analysing the link between running water and urban modernisation, the Museu d'Historia examines the history of Barcelona's water supply through a series of documents and images.
Tues-Sat 10.00-19.00. Wed 10.00-20.00. Sun 10.00-14.30
