The Vapor Aymerich was a wool mill which carried out the entire textile manufacturing process.
It closed in 1976, and the Government of Catalonia acquired the building in 1983 to make it into the home of the Catalan National Science and Technology Museum.
Nowadays the building can be visited as a modernist textile mill: the coal cellar, boilers, chimney, steam engine and the old 11,000m2 production facility with a sawtooth roof made of a plain brick Catalan
vaults and set upon cast-iron columns.
The building is widely seen as one of the finest examples of Catalan industrial modernism.
It houses permanent and temporary exhibitions.
