Andorra- 7 March, 2018 – Five Museums

We woke up this morning to snow covering the mountains. The sky was blue and the sun was shining.

The owner’s well behaved dogs really wanted to join us at breakfast. After breakfast we plotted a route to explore some Andorran museums. Luckily the road had been plowed by the tome we headed down the hill.

We started at the Museum of Electricity. Learning about the history of electricity in Andorra allowed us to learn about the recent history of Andorra.

Next we went to the motorcycle museum.

While the museums were closed for lunch we drove through Andorra to France and back. We saw several very busy and beautiful ski resorts.

From there we went to Casa Cristo Ethnographic Museum. It is a small Andorran home that allowed us to see what ordinary Andorran life was like in the 19th and early 20th century.

Next we visited the Automobile Museum.

And finally we tried to visit the museum in a typical Andorran stately home. We got into the ticket office but were told we couldn’t tour the house without a reservation. So that ended our very busy but extremely fun and interesting day.
