Victor Balaguer Museum uploads his collection of paintings to Wikipedia
Thanks to a collaboration between the Vilanova mueum and Amical Viquipèdia Mireia Rosich, museum director, approved the content donation as part of a mid-term collaboration project. The Biblioteca Museu Víctor Balaguer is a museum founded in 1884 by Víctor Balaguer, a Catalan politician and writer. It is one of Catalonia's oldest and most singular museums. The building keeps almost all the original decoration and collections, so the visitor is able to know what the museum was like in the 19th century. This is now also possible through Wikimedia!. Paintings are uploaded and ready to use here.
