Centre de Documentació i Museu de les Arts Escèniques The Centre de Documentació i Museu de les Arts Escèniques, also known as MAE, is a centre for information and research on the performing arts in Catalonia, Spain.

The centre has an extensive library, an archive and collections from the Institut del Teatre, which specializes in theatre, dance, opera, zarzuela, music hall, magic and circus performances. Its major collections encompass Catalonia and the Spanish Golden Age. The centre also has posters, programmes, photographs, pictures, puppet theatres, set designs and costumes which are exhibited in temporary exhibitions and online, since it has no permanent exhibition space. The museum is a member of SIBMAS and ENICPA, and is part of the ECLAP European Project. In Catalonia, it is involved with the Consortium of Academic Libraries of Catalonia.HistoryThe museum's pioneer was theatre and music critic Marc Jesús Bertran. In 1912, Bertran presented a plan to Barcelona City Council and the Mancomunitat and began collecting objects and documents related to the performing arts.The Barcelona Museum of Theatre, Dance and Music was created in 1923. Bertran was its first director, and the first exhibition hall opened to the public in the Palau de les Belles Arts. That year the museum became part of the Escola Catalana d'Art Dramàtic, established as part of the cultural policy of the Barcelona Provincial Council (led by Enric Prat de la Riba, and the origin of the Institut del Teatre).
