Esperienza fantastica: A very interesting private museum run by two adorable elderly people who have put together this fantastic collection, in addition the visit is done in French, the price of the entrance ticket is ridiculous, you absolutely have to go there

Esperienza fantastica: A marvel. You don't expect it. In addition, the owners are very friendly and explain everything to you and teach you the curiosities. Money well spent. For curious families.

Esperienza fantastica: SPECTACULAR! An entire floor of a collection of mechanical typewriters and calculators, another of sewing machines and wall clocks, and another of a multitude of other gadgets. Everything perfectly arranged and with many elements that can be touched and used. And the best thing is that the owners are there to explain everything and answer whatever is needed. And majestic. Coming to Figueres is worth it just for this museum.

Marta Galve 1 year ago

Esperienza fantastica: Admission costs €3 (a pity that there are no discounts of any kind). The collection is impressive, but the best part is undoubtedly meeting its owners, who explain how they treasured it.

Alex Molina 1 year ago

Esperienza fantastica: The best museum I have ever visited. Very very HIGHLY recommended. A super complete and varied collection of all kinds of old gadgets (typewriters, pencil sharpeners, sewing machines, slot machines, cash registers, etc. etc.). Everything super neat and orderly. What I liked most of all were the owners of the museum: Some more than wonderful and kind people that I have had the pleasure of meeting. The lady guided us through the entire museum, telling us everything about the collection and any other questions that we might have. I loved the passion with which he revealed the relics that the couple has treasured over time. I only missed the fact that they had a piggy bank on the counter since the symbolic €3 entrance fee was not enough for me and I would have liked to be able to leave a little more in exchange for such a pleasant experience.

Esperienza fantastica: Siamo rimasti sorpresi dalle ottime condizioni e dal numero delle macchine antiche raccolte da una vecchia coppia straordinaria. Senora Magrita (non so se scrivo correttamente il suo nome) ci ha guidato attraverso l'intero museo per più di un'ora, un tale peccato che non parlo Espanyol né francese, ma posso sentire la sua passione e amore per queste collezioni, oltre a ciascuno La collezione ha una breve introduzione in più lingue tra cui l'inglese. Questo museo dei giocattoli Musem Y Dali Y sono tre posti che ci sono piaciuti di più. Devo fare un'altra visita qui se torno a Figueres in futuro.

Esperienza fantastica: Incredible experience. A must for anyone who visits Figueres and is interested in history. A huge and impressive collection of pieces from the past very well presented by the owner in a close way and that shows her passion for the exhibition. The owners are very friendly and all for an almost symbolic price. Essential.

Esperienza fantastica: It's a journey through time ... touching objects like the ones in my grandmother's house or standing clocks like at home since my father was a watchmaker! It's one of my favorite museums! I'm happy there!

Edu S. Prats 2 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: An incredible place, a family museum. For € 3 the lady is super friendly, she takes the trouble to walk you around the museum and explain everything to you. The visit lasts approximately 1 hour through its 3 floors. Definitely a place to stop if you are in the area.

Esperienza fantastica: What a discovery in the city of Figueres! If you have ever dreamed of transporting yourself to times gone by, this is your museum. There are countless period objects that you would never have said what they were for or how to use them, but thanks to Margarita it has been a pleasure to discover them. Thank you Margarita for your attention and dedication and to you Pere for your kindness and above all, thank you both for allowing us to know those wonders of the past.

JOSE GUDAY FONT 3 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Must visit if you arrive in Figueres. Extraordinary museum, excellent work of the Padrosa family. Machines and devices that remind us of our childhood when the world was all mechanical, well preserved, and well collected. Motorcycles, typewriters, calculating machines, .......


Esperienza fantastica: Extraordinary, a collection of magnificent antique machines and gadgets. The lady in charge of the museum is a very understanding and also very friendly and attentive.

Esperienza fantastica: Incredibile collezione privata di macchine da scrivere vintage, macchine da cucito e telefoni, tra cui molte unità strane sperimentali. Di proprietà di una coppia di anziani, che sono felici di fare un tour in spagnolo o francese. Sicuramente merita una visita, una vera gemma inaspettata per coloro che sono interessati alla storia della tecnologia.

maribel Espeso 5 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Amazing what we found there. From the outside it seems small although we entered because it seemed interesting, we could not imagine the amount of things we were going to see. Typewriters of all times and countries, clocks, sewing machines, irons and antique stoves, with an explanation from the owner, who was a super spread of everything. Excellent, not to miss it.

Irene Sanchez 5 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Wonderful museum. I have no words to describe what I experienced the day I went for the first time. Unique pieces in the world. Pieces that you will never see in your life anywhere else. Very focused on the 19th and early 20th centuries. Excellent cleaning and maintenance.

Esperienza fantastica: We wander randomly here, paid €3, and friendly host ask which language we speak. We wonder why, until the kind lady brought us on a guided tour through entire 3 stories museum, going through what the couple gathered for past 45 years. It is a place of love & labour, as it includes Italian Vespas that she & her husband used, and items that are unique in the world (example: a hemisphere typewriter for blind). We see antique typewriters, sewing machines, all kinds of machines, many of which are so interesting you just have to ask what they do & be amazed by the reply. The lady is Magerita & she tries best to explain in Spanish/Catalonian and through hand signs & drawings we strangely understand what she said. It was a fantastic tour, and it sadden our hearts to see memories of these items disappearing when such collectors are around no more. This place is the best bang for bucks and is so fun & informative, do not miss it.

Esperienza fantastica: Questo è stato un museo fantastico. Ha però strani tempi di apertura. Non ha aperto fino alle 16:00 per noi. È un museo a basso costo da visitare. Non c'erano altri visitatori diversi da noi due. Ci sono stati mostrati in giro dalla donna anziana, che poteva parlare francese o spagnolo, abbiamo scelto il francese, quindi abbiamo ottenuto un'essenza di ciò che stava dicendo. L'ultimo piano era la macchina da scrivere, da quelle in cui si seleziona il carattere e quindi premere il tasto. C'erano macchine da scrivere da tutto il mondo, cinese, giapponese, americano, francese, spagnolo e inglese. Scrittori di tipo nascosti in tabelle, macchine da scrivere progettate per il corrispondente di guerra. Giù le scale c'erano macchine di semina, ancora una volta centinaia di modelli diversi. L'ultimo piano era più miscelato con molti oggetti che coprono vita, biciclette, ferri, radio, telecamere, ecc. C'erano anche numerosi orologi da nonno, che sono stati guidati per noi e li hanno resi carcini.

Esperienza fantastica: Curious and very educational site for both adults and children, the owners are charming, the lady has given us a guided tour and the truth... I liked it much more than the Dalí museum. I recommend it

luca bruno 6 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Museum concerning the technological development of typewriters, sewing machines, irons, telexes, clocks and more. The low cost is worth a visit. The elderly owners accompany visitors on a visit to the museum which will inevitably surprise you. A museum outside the box. We do not speak Italian but the lady in Spanish makes herself understood very well. Recommended.

Walter Moscatelli 6 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Siamo andati al grande forte in questa città e dopo abbiamo avuto un po 'di tempo libero. Abbiamo visitato il centro del luogo e abbiamo visto un cartello: Museu de la Tècnica de l'Emporda. Questo segno ha attirato la nostra attenzione poiché la tecnologia è il nostro interesse condiviso. Non sapevamo cosa aspettarci e pianificato di esplorare il museo tutto da soli. Poi siamo arrivati ​​e siamo stati accolti da una signora molto gentile, parlando solo spagnolo o francese. Ci ha portato al piano di sopra e ci ha condotti circa 3 piani di dispositivi e strumenti "vecchi" come macchine da scrivere meccaniche, macchine da cucire, scale, grammi, radio, telecamere, ecc. È diventata un'esperienza molto speciale per noi, solo uno di noi ha potuto capire la maggior parte di ciò che ha detto, in francese, ma nonostante ciò ci ha chiarito la sua storia con pazienza ed entusiasmo. Nelle 2 ore in cui siamo stati lì, siamo rimasti sorpresi dalla diversa collezione e abbiamo goduto dello stretto contatto che abbiamo avuto con il proprietario. Se hai una possibilità, visita questo posto quando sei in città!

Colin S 6 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Semplicemente un museo incredibile. La collezione è come niente che io abbia mai visto. La donna che gestisce il museo offre un tour molto istruttivo. La loro collezione di macchine da scrivere al terzo piano è a dir poco sorprendente. Nota: non parla lingue diverse dallo spagnolo, quindi porta un traduttore se non lo fai!
