Thematic

Located in the Diagonal subway station, the Space Mercè Room is a room of exhibitions that TMB offers as an opportunity to the travellers and artists to find and expose their creativity and, at the same time, make the citizens participate in the activities that take place there.
This cultural space offers a homage to Mercè Room Schnorkowski, that was president of TMB during eleven years (1980-1991). As a promoter of the metropolitan public transport, her contribution was very valuable, and we have wanted to link her name to a space that has personified the citizens vocation and also a public service, as a gesture of homage to her task and commitment.
Location: the Space Mercè Room is located in the hall where the subway lines number 3 and 5 make a connection at the Diagonal station.
Schedule: it is opened all the working days from Monday to Friday, from 10 am. to 20.30 pm.   The entrance is free.
