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

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.

The best I've seen, I've been twice and I like it more and more. The couple that runs it are super friendly and everything is super placed and clean, I recommend it to anyone who is in that area.

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.

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.

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.

Ficamos impressionados com as boas condições e o número de máquinas antigas coletadas por um incrível casal antigo. Senora Magrita (não sei se eu soletrar o nome dela corretamente) nos guiou por todo o museu por mais de uma hora, uma pena que eu não falo Espanyol nem francês, mas pode sentir sua paixão e amor por essas coleções, além de cada um A coleção tem uma breve introdução em vários idiomas, incluindo inglês. Este museu de brinquedos musem y dali y são três lugares que mais apreciamos. Tenho que receber outra visita aqui se estiver de volta aos Figueres no futuro.

Great collection. Folks there don't speak English but pieces speak for themselves.

Daniel Estévez Campos 2 years ago

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.

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

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.

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.

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, .......


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.

We are delighted with this museum! The landlady, Mrs. Margarita, led through all the halls, explaining in detail about each exhibit. We were so passionate about the tour that we even forgot to photograph the exhibition. A very large and interesting private collection. Many thanks to the creators of the museum.

Great museum, very friendly staff. A huge number of exhibits. I strongly recommend. At a cost of a modest 3 euros (which includes a guide) - a great place. Of the minuses - the guide knows Spanish and French. Be prepared to listen to them.

Impressive. I will return for sure. With very little time that we have been able to devote to this visit, we were impressed. Very interesting technique evolution and, above all, the possibility of comparing its development in several countries.

A incrível coleção particular de máquinas de escrever vintage, máquinas de costura e telefones, incluindo muitas unidades experimentais estranhas. Propriedade de um casal de idosos, que está feliz em fazer um tour em espanhol ou francês. Definitivamente vale a pena uma visita, uma jóia verdadeira inesperada para os interessados ​​na história da tecnologia.

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

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.

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.

Este foi um museu incrível. No entanto, ele tem horários de funcionamento estranhos. Não abriu até as 16h para nós. É um museu de baixo custo para visitar. Não havia outros visitantes além de nós dois. Fomos mostrados pela mulher mais velha, que sabíamos francês ou espanhol, escolhemos francês, então obtivemos uma essência do que ela estava dizendo. O piso superior eram as máquinas de escrever, daqueles em que você seleciona o personagem e pressiona a tecla. Havia máquinas de escrever de todo o mundo, chinês, japonês, americano, francês, espanhol e inglês. Escritores de tipo escondidos em tabelas, máquinas de escrever projetadas para o correspondente de guerra. Escadas abaixo havia máquinas de semeadura, novamente centenas de modelos diferentes. O andar final foi mais misturado com muitos itens que cobriam vida, bicicletas, ferros, rádios, câmeras etc. Também houve inúmeros relógios de grande pai, que são guias para nós e os fizeram de carrilhão.

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

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.

In Figueres there is much more than Dalí (essential) and you cannot miss this museum. If you behave well, they give you a guided tour that amazes you, by the owners of the collection.

Fomos ao Grande Forte nesta cidade e tivemos algum tempo livre depois. Visitamos o centro do local e vimos uma placa: Museu de la Tècnica de l'Emorda. Esse sinal chamou nossa atenção, já que a tecnologia é nosso interesse compartilhado. Não sabíamos o que esperar e planejamos explorar o museu sozinho. Então chegamos e fomos recebidos por uma senhora muito gentil, conversando apenas em espanhol ou francês. Ela nos levou para o andar de cima e nos levou cerca de 3 andares de dispositivos e ferramentas 'antigos', como máquinas de escrever mecânicas, máquinas de costura, escalas, gramofones, rádios, câmeras, etc. Tornou -se uma experiência muito especial para nós, apenas um de nós conseguiu entender a maior parte do que ela disse, em francês, mas apesar desse fato que ela deixou sua história clara para nós com paciência e entusiasmo. Nas duas horas em que estivemos lá, ficamos impressionados com a coleção diferente e desfrutamos do contato próximo que tivemos com o proprietário. Se você tiver uma chance, visite este lugar quando estiver na cidade!

Simplesmente um museu incrível. A coleção é como nada que eu já vi. A mulher que dirige o museu faz uma turnê muito informativa. Sua coleção de máquina de escrever no terceiro andar é incrível. Nota: Ela não fala outros idiomas além do espanhol, então traga um tradutor se não o fizer!
