The exhibition will be permanent and its opening to the public is expected to coincide with the inauguration by Barcelona City Council of the Ramon and Nuria Pla Gardens. The exhibition of scientific, technical and industrial material of the Institut Ravetllat Pla will occupy some of the old facilities of this laboratory on the ground floor of the Casa Museu de la Fundació where a successful activity took place between 1923 and 1980.

Restoration and adaptation of the rooms that will permanently house the exhibition are currently being carried out, with the selection and restoration of both: pieces from the documentary and bibliographic archive and the collection of material that will be exhibited as well as the furniture that will support them. We also work on the writing and manufacture of informative material, both multimedia and iconographic.
