The Museu Frederic Marès [muˈzɛw fɾɛðəˈɾik maˈɾɛs] is an art and sculpture museum in Barcelona, Spain.[1][2][3]

The Museu contains a collection of thousands of items from the sculptor Frederic Marès.[1] Located near the Barcelona Cathedral, the Museu collection includes statuary from pre-Roman times through to almost the present day, with a particular emphasis on medieval Christian art, and a separate 'Collector's Cabinet' of artisan items such as fans and keys.
