The architect Lluís Muncunill built this steam in 1907 commissioned by Aymerich, Amat and Jover, three Industrialists from Terrassa dedicated to the manufacture of woollen fabrics. After the closure of the factory in 1976, the Generalitat of Catalonia turned this building into the headquarters of the Museu Nacional de la Ciència i de la Tècnica de Catalunya (mNACTEC) in 1983.
The mNACTEC spreads and promotes the knowledge of the scientific, technical and industrial culture, preserves, shows, and studies the scientific and technical advances in Catalonia, their industrial application and the social impact that they have had.
You can visit the various parts of this modernist steam, considered one of the best examples of Catalan industrial modernism (fireplace, coal cellars, boilers, steam engine and a machine room) and the permanent and temporary exhibitions that it hosts.
