Aims

The Vil·la Casals-Pau Casals Museum is a useful educational tool which allows teachers to work on both the figure of Pau Casals and his times as well as on diverse concepts relating directly to music and the values of peace, justice and freedom. Children and young people must be given an explanation of who Pau Casals was in order to enjoy his music, as well as to learn from his attitude, his integrity, his solidary spirit and all the values which can make the people of today recognise in this figure the spirit of the struggle for a better world.

Tour

The museum offers various strategies of communication for both the children and young people who visit it. The music to be heard throughout the tour, with pieces by J.S. Bach and Pau Casals, among others, creates an effective link between the visitors and the figure whom they discover. Likewise, images in the form of both still pictures and audiovisuals are everywhere to be seen, presenting the thoughts and the various aspects of Pau Casals from the earliest moments of his life and his childhood, when he learned to play the cello, to his advanced age when he received the U.N. Peace Medal.

Through these two resources, the visit to the museum itself becomes a way of discovering an important figure while the tour of the house sheds light on many facets of the everyday life of his times.

The tour lasts approximately one hour. The museum may be visited in groups of 25 to 30 persons, with the entry of successive groups at 10-minute intervals.
