About Us


The Friends of the MNAC was founded in 1996 with the mission of raising public awareness of the heritage preserved by the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. After ten years of activity as an association, in 2006 we became a legally recognised foundation in order to become a more effective instrument to support the Museum. The consolidation of the entity led us to take a step further and divide the original mission into three main objectives:

  • To raise public awareness of the MNAC collection;
  • To contribute to conserving and enriching the MNAC art collection;
  • To cultivate a sense of appreciation for our heritage.
