Activities at Andorra's museums

GO FOR IT AT MUSEUMS

From 20-11-2021 to 16-01-2022

Discover our cultural heritage in a way that’s fun and exciting by enjoying the programme of activities offered by the network of Museums managed by the Government of Andorra.

The network of Museums managed by the Government of Andorra is a fun way to get to know Andorra’s long and unique history. It’s made up of a wide and varied range of museums that you’ll find very interesting. Take part in the activities held during the year and discover the transformations and vicissitudes that Andorran society has been through over time, such as the great transformation experienced in the second half of the 20th century which defined the Andorra of today.

Andorra’s museums will show you these changes from different perspectives.
