The Museum of Natural Sciences of Ciutadella Park is a public scientific institution created in 200 through the merger of the Geology Museum and the Zoology Museum. Both museums date back to the Martorell Museum founded in 1878 thanks to the bequest of Francesc Martorell i Peña, and it was the first public museum in Barcelona. In 1924, part of its collections was moved to the Castell dels Tres Dragons where the city’s Zoology Museum has been located since 1906.
The Zoology Museum dates from 1906. Since 1924, it has been housed in the Castell dels Tres Dragons, a building designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a cafè-restaurant for the 1888 Universal Exposition in Barcelona held in the Ciutadella Park.
