The Museum originates from the private collection of playing cards, gathered from the year 1916 Félix Alfaro Fournier, grandson of the founder of "Naipes Heraclio Fournier, well-known in Spain manufacturer of playing cards. In 1984, the collection was purchased by the Government of the region of Alava and declared a cultural heritage, and ten years later, the Museum is housed in the Palace of Bendaña Palace next to the Archeological Museum of Álava. Its Permanent exposition acquaints visitors with selected from thousands of decks of cards 20 samples from around the world. Here you can learn interesting facts about the development of the playing cards, starting with the 15-th century to our days. Besides the cards-vintage, thematic, Tarot, satirical-in the Museum exhibited various machines for their manufacture.

  • The Fournier Museum of playing cards in Vitoria is a Museum of curious to see by his exposure of cards for all time and in addition to all the world. The evolution can be seen from the first cards as they made up to the present day, I recommend it for those who are not very lovers visit museums since it has references that are worth seeing, especially if you can have a guide inside the Museum you go explaining their curiosities.

  • More fun than expected and definitely worth visiting (especially since it's free). The archaeology museum next door is underwhelming in comparison, but worth walking through.
  • It's okay to go with kids to see cards.

  • A fairly bizarre Museum by that it is not very normal to see cards, but it is what makes it really fun. It has a large collection of cards of all ages, all styles and most of the European countries. On the first floor they have machines and presses that make possible the creation of the decks. We miss a shop at popular prices of decks of cards of the brand.

  • Museum Heraclio Fournier officer where you can enjoy of the evolution of the decks with different exposed machinery manufacturing. You can also see all kinds of printed Barajas with different techniques. A recommended visit to learn about the history of the Spanish deck.

  • The Museum is located in the historic heart of the city. Both the entrance to this museum as to the archaeological of Álava, which is at the same venue, is free. The Museum is curious, can have how been evolving letters, the techniques used to make them and others. There are many, and at the end it can be a little tiresome.
