About us


MUBA is a center for the development and dissemination of cultural projects devoted to childhood.

MUBA, through constant research and quality work, wishes to promote in children an open outlook at the world. 

MUBA is a private museum that does not receive public funding. It is supported by entrance tickets, collaborations with partner companies, private donations, 5x1000 and through the participation in international and national tender notices. 



Play, do, think, grow is what drives MUBA every dau in the construction and planning of the activities.

Children experience, know and learn through play and direct experience, but as well as being a cultural center that encourages children's creative thinking, MUBA addresses all the ages proposing cultural projects including visits dedicated to high schools and universities, training dedicated to teachers, educators and cultural operators and thematic conferences related to temporary exhibitions.
