MIBA - the Museum of Ideas and Inventions

The Museum of Ideas and Inventions opened its doors in March, 2011 thanks to the inventor Pep Torres, who is really diversified person. He introduces himself as a musician, designer, writer, to name but a few.

The main idea of this place is to push people to think differently. Once you cross the threshold, you will realize there are many ways of being creative.

The museum is divided into three sections, which are “Limitless Society”, “Reflexionarium” and “the Corner of the Absurd”. In MIBA you will not find serious historical inventions like first radio or computer. The place show casts odd design objects and ideas that were created by people from all over the world.

Moreover, the owner placed the special emphasis on children's inventions. In museum, you will find a zone called Mini Miba for small Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein to develop their creativeness. Kids are encouraged to reflect on paper and blackboard all the ideas that come to their mind. At the end of each month, the crew picks three of the most spirit ideas. These ideas are prototyped and patented on the kid's own name.

Bring your children to MIBA and maybe they will be the next ones who will get a chance to have their own invention seen by hundreds of people every day.

The museum is located in the historical building in the most enchanting part of the city – El Gótico.
