The Granollers Museum (Granollers, Vallès Oriental) is a heterogeneous collection comprising archaeology, decorative arts, ethnography, numismatics and ancient, modern and contemporary art. The Museum, which is part of the Barcelona Provincial Council Local Museum Network, coordinates and supports a major part of the archaeological excavations taking place in the region of El Vallès Oriental, while promoting awareness and protection of local cultural heritage.[1] In addition, the Museum manages L'Adoberia, the medieval Granollers historic interpretation centre.

The Museum’s collection is on display by rote, to give a more dynamic feel to the collections, which are shown in three different exhibitions each year, and is accompanied by temporary exhibitions and other activities, such as workshops, conferences and concerts.[2]
