The FC Barcelona Centre for Documentation and Studies, located on the second
floor of the Club Museum, is devoted to the history of the Club. It is divided
into four sections: a newspaper and periodicals section, a library, historic
archives and a photographic archive. The cultural heritage contained on these
shelves is extraordinary and includes the original Statutes of 1911 signed by
Joan Gamper himself.
Club founder Joan Gamper first had the idea of setting up a Barca museum in the
1920s, but for a number of reasons, it was not until 1984 when President Josep
Lluis Nuñez was in charge of the club that his vision came to fruition. Once
again the club showed themselves to be pioneers in the footballing world and
with subsequent enlargements in 1987,1994 and 1998, the museum now covers 3,500
Year after year the museum has increased its number of visitors and become an
ever more important tool for spreading the name of the club far and wide. Not

museum of any kind in Catalonia, regularly receiving more than 1,160,000
visitors a year, and is a reference point for many other such museums around the
In 2000, the ex president Gaspart helped ensure that the museum would be named

The Centre for Documentation and Studies was inaugurated on 20th October 1994,
comes under the control of the Clubs Communications Dept. and is funded by the
FC Barcelona Foundation. Use of the Centre is free to all and it is an essential
source for journalists and fans who wish to research the history of the Club.
Since January 2006, the Centre for Documentation and Studies has embarked on an
ambitious project to digitalise the catalogue and research new material. In
addition, the Centre, directed by the historian Carles Santacana, organizes
activities designed to bring its resources to a wider audience and forms part of
the network of archive material of Catalonia through agreements with other
organizations. The first practical result of this new phase was the acquisition
of the Horaci Seguí photographic collection, more than a million and a half
photographs related with Barca in the period from 1960 to 2003.
