  • This museum is considered the main attraction of the village. Includes three expositions: family history, Postal Museum and the House-Museum. Entrance fee (€5). You visit two exhibitions themselves, and the third with a guide. Our visit not asked from the beginning: we entered in the wrong place, immediately ran up to us the girl with bulging eyes and asked ticket. Bought a ticket and clarified about the visit. We were told that the guide you want to back up, say "OK, we reserve", in response to us "guided visit to 15:00, we agree, despite the fact that you have to wait 3 HOURS (!). Thinks nonsense, will walk, lunch, time and will take place. Go back to 15:00 and learn that conducts a tour guide only Spanish (!). We expressed their astonishment and incomprehension. All our communication with the staff was in French, I explained several times, two of them who will conduct a tour for us 15:00 in French. We were the only visitors. Precipitate remained unpleasant when you fooled. Not recommend nothing interesting will lose time.

  • Very interesting, great story, knowledgeable guide, loved this place. It's only a pity that pictures are now allowed. It's so old fashioned, this policy. Anyways, highly recommended!
  • After visiting Casa Cristo in Encamp and Casa Rull in Sispony, don't forget Areny-Plandolit House, a fantastic example of noble House in Ordino. Musealitzada from a few years ago, the tour is very enjoyable and complete, offering highly interesting details about your family and your lifestyle. The library of the family that is part of the national heritage or the reproduction of the one of the sons of Baron Guillem d'areny-Plandolit, who was a dentist, gynaecologist and taxidermist. The guided tour must be booked earlier.

  • Highly recommended. A Manor House in perfect condition with every little detail of one of the wealthiest families in the history of Andorra. It is very amazing the different rooms and stays: library, children's room, the kitchen, the consultation of the dentist... All objects are very interesting: table-ware, books, toys, furniture... The guide who was explaining the visit (a very young guy) was counting in a very entertaining way. We left the visit thrilled, we loved it.

  • Disappointed! It's a lovely Andorran "bourgeois" House. But it is also a very disjointed tour of the ground floor to the attic with no explanation of the the daily lives of residents. It was inhabited during 3 centuries but remains above all elements of the end XIX beginning 20th guide described you about life and the role of the family in Ordino and Andorra. That's too bad
