We visited the museum on a Sunday afternoon (first Sunday of the month is free) and were surprised at how big it was. There was a special exhibition on nanotechnology and another one on computers and all information was available in English.

What we really enjoyed was entering the big chimeney, and seeing all the old machinery used back in the days when Terrassa had a huge textile industry.
