The city of Barcelona has become a prime tourist destination thanks to good planning initiated following the Olympic Games in 1992. The Barcelona brand has been consolidating through characteristics such as an important cultural heritage, a situation favorable climatic and significant in the field of fairs and congresses, differentiating it from the rest of the competition both domestic and international investment. One of the points that has been boosted lately has been the cultural tourism, but this is based on the extensive cultural heritage of Barcelona and not in the museum infrastructures. The aim of this study is to provide information on the economic contribution posed by museums to total tourism revenue. From the information provided by the Government of Catalonia, the museums themselves, as well as other studies of matter.
