  • We went because looking for things to do in Figueres saw that it could be interested in our getaway to Figueres. The Museum carry one more charming marriage. The woman made us a lovely visit from all his huge collection, above all typewriters and sewing machines. We have learned a lot, and my 6 year old daughter has enjoyed listening to everything that we explained. I recommend it 100%, a bargain price (adult€ 3) for what is learned. Duration 1 hour approximately.

  • This was an amazing museum. It does have odd opening times though. Did not open until 4pm for us. It is a low cost museum to visit. There were no other visitors other than us two. We were shown around by the older woman, who could speak French or Spanish, we chose French so we got a gist of what she was saying. The top floor was typewriters, from ones where you select the character and then press the key. There were typewriters from all over the world, Chinese, Japanese, American, French, Spanish and English. Type writers hidden in tables, typewriters designed for the war correspondent. Down stairs there were sowing machines, again hundreds of different models. The final floor was more mixed with lots of items covering life, bicycles, irons, radios, cameras, etc. There were also numerous grand father clocks, which are guide started for us and made them chime.
  • We went to the grand Fort in this city and had some spare time afterwards. We visited the centre of the place, and saw a sign: Museu de la Tècnica de l'Emporda. This sign got our attention since technology is our shared interest. We didn't know what to expect and planned to explore the museum all by ourselves. Then we arrived and were met by a very kind lady, talking only Spanish or French. She took us upstairs and led us around 3 floors of 'old' devices and tools like mechanical typewriters, sewing machines, scales, gramophones, radios, cameras, etc. It became a very special experience for us, only one of us could understand most of what she said, in French, but despite that fact she made her story clear to us with patience and enthusiasm. In the 2 hours that we have been there, we were amazed by the different collection and enjoyed the close contact we had with the proprietor. If you have a chance, visit this place when you are in the city!
  • Simply an incredible museum. The collection is like nothing I've ever seen. The woman who runs the museum gives a very informative tour. Their typewriter collection on the third floor is nothing short of amazing. Note: she does not speak any languages other than Spanish, so bring a translator along if you don't!
  • Very cool place!
  • Museum concerning the technological development of typewriters, sewing, ironing, telex, watches and more. The cost is well worth a visit. The old owners take visitors into the museum visit which inevitably will surprise you. A museum outside the box. You don't speak Italian but the Lady in Spanish do you understand very well. Recommended.
