The Berguedà region has a very important industrial past, as its main source of income once came from coal mining, textiles, and cement. Today, all that remains is a memory, although a not-too-distant one, and a historical legacy that can be visited through different spaces.
The Museum is located in the Sant Corneli mining settlement and serves as an interpretive centre dedicated to coal mining in Berguedà. The settlement was founded in the late 19th century to house the people who worked in the mines, following the already deeply-rooted industrial model in Catalonia.
