Interior of the Verdaguer House-Museum

The Verdaguer House-Museum is a literary museum in Folgueroles, birthplace of poet Jacint Verdaguer, in the region of Osona.[1] It was opened in 1967 and is part of the Barcelona Provincial Council Local Museum Network.

Building[edit]

The Verdaguer House-Museum is located in a 17th-century house occupied by Josep Verdaguer and his wife, Josepa Santaló, (parents of Jacint Verdaguer) between 1841 and 1847, when the poet was two years old.[2]

Exhibition[edit]

The exhibition area is structured on three floors: on the first floor is the permanent exhibition, which takes visitors through the stages of the poet’s life; the second floor shows what a typical kitchen and bedroom were decorated like in the 19th century, time in which young Jacint lived; on the third floor there is a space dedicated to temporary exhibitions and another to the artist Perejaume, as well as an audiovisual presentation on the life and work of Jacint Verdaguer.
