  • Amazing private collection of vintage typewriters, sewing machines and telephones, including many experimental weird units. Owned by an elderly couple, who are happy to give a tour in Spanish or French. Definitely worth a visit, real unexpected gem for those interested in history of technology.
  • 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.
