Museu etnològic
Sants - Montjuïc

The Ethnological Museum houses a vast collection of items, from Australian Aboriginal boomerangs to rugs and jewellery from Afghanistan, although by far the most comprehensive collections are from Catalonia. Of the displays upstairs, most outstanding are the Moroccan, Japanese and Philippine exhibits, though there are also some interesting pre-Columbian finds. The attempts to arrange the pieces thematically, however, are not altogether successful: a potentially fascinating exhibition entitled 'Taboos', for instance, offers a rather limp look at nudity in different cultures.
