The Museu Frederic Marès [muˈzɛw fɾɛðəˈɾik maˈɾɛs] is an art and sculpture museum in Barcelona.[1][2] [3]It contains the collection of thousands of items donated to the city by sculptor Frederic Marès. [1] Located in the street beside the Gothic Cathedral, its collection includes both a range of statuary from pre-Roman times through to almost the present day, with a particular emphasis on medieval Christian art, and a very separate 'Collector's Cabinet' of a range of artisan items such as fans and keys.
