THE EDUCATION SERVICE
The funeral carriages collection and the associated educational space allow us to offer an in-depth vision of the artistic value of the carriages. Using the latest innovative technologies, students can learn the meaning behind the rich and varied funeral symbols displayed on the vehicles. In addition, we show and explain how the city evolved and developed throughout the 19th and 20th century, and discuss what this meant on a cultural level for the majority of Barcelona society.
We also aim to treat death as an entirely natural thing. We therefore offer a brief visit to the cemetery and discuss death in relation to the different rituals and carriages contained within the collection. It is dealt with throughout the visit with the aim of understanding how funeral rituals have evolved over the years.
Based on educational materials, classified by school year and designed to correspond to school curriculum, we offer a range of different activities which, by way of an interactive tour of the 6 areas into which the carriages are divided, provides the students which an enriching and enlightening vision of the collection as a whole.
