Museu del Suro de Palafrugell
The Cork Museum is an institution in the heart of Palafrugell dedicated to the interpretation and dissemination of the Catalan cork regions and heritage.
The first thing to see in the museum is the building itself, a modernist factory designed by General Guitart that was built between 1900 and 1907 and today contains several of the museum’s exhibition spaces. The current “Cork in Progress” exhibition is temporary and explains how the museum is in full transformation.
The museum begins with the Can Mario audio-visual presentation to tell cork’s exceptional history, followed by an exhibition that traces the cork from the forest to
the factory to make caps, disks, paper and chipboard, through a space where visitors can experiment with cork and, finally, a space where visitors can collaborate
by evaluating the plans for the future museum and sharing their opinion.
