Things to do as a family in the Maresme when it’s cold

Maresme region is sea and mountains. It is fresh air and nature. These intrinsic characteristics of the region are ideal to enjoy the good weather and the sunny days. However, there are also some cold and cloudy days and then Maresme also offers multiple possibilities to enjoy with the family.

The Maresme region is large and very active, so the social and cultural life is very intense. We have selected some of these activities to be able to enjoy these cold and cloudy days.

Five family activities to enjoy on cold days

Escape room

Mataró. In the Circus of Strangers, an old circus company with more than 100 years of history, offers the best magic tricks, the most spectacular stunts and the strangest and most peculiar people on the planet. Until one day a strange event during one of his functions changed the script of his story …

The neighbors are very unhappy with the police chief and have decided to report him to court. Very angry, the commissioner has decided to plant a bomb somewhere in the city. In Super Swats, participants must find it and deactivate it.

Las reliquias mágicas

Masnou. The guardian of the magical relics has suffered a memory spell and she does not remember where in the school of magic and sorcery are the three powerful magical objects that she must safeguard. In The Magic Relics you must enter the magic school, learn spells and potions and recover the three lost magic items. An ideal experience for children and families.


Vilassar de Dalt. At the La Massa theater we find an abundant family program of both theatrical shows, such as circus and cinema. This emblematic tehater of Maresme designed by the famous Valencian master builder Rafael Guastavino i Moreno is an ideal space both for the content of his proposals and for the continent that, by itself, is worth a visit.

Mataró. In the Monumental Theater they offer a children’s program. In the capital of Maresme there are otherspaces where we have family activities such as the Casal L’Aliança, the Antoni Comas Library or the Coll i Regàs House. The offer is really abundant and fun.


Santa Susanna. On days when you feel like sheltering, visit one of the museums in Maresme is a great idea. In the Masia Racó de Can Cases de Santa Susanna we have the Museu de la Pagesia.

Premià de Mar. The Museu de l’Estampació is the only museum in Spain specialized in textile printing. The museum workshop is a fun and educational space where on weekends activities are offered for a family audience, in which participants learn while playing different techniques related to textiles and printing.

Vilassar de Dalt. In this town we find a small and unknown museum that will surely delight the little ones. This is El Cau del Cargol, a space that brings together a collection of 16,000 shells of marine, terrestrial and freshwater mollusks from all over the world. The shells of snails and shells from El Cau del Cargol were collected since 1950 by its founder Jaume Bot i Arenas (1904-1983). Thanks to the acquisition of collections prior to the founding of the museum, we can enjoy the work of various naturalists from 1850 to today; That is why the collection contains really rare or unique specimens, both for the size of the shells and the place of origin as well as for their state of conservation.
