In addition to that the free museum Sundays serve to preserve and promote Barcelona’s cultural heritage. The awareness and appreciation of art and culture is strengthened by the increased number of visitors to the museums. This in turn encourages further public and private investment in cultural initiatives to ensure the sustainability and diversity of these important institutions for future generations.
