Mondays in Museums XI - Fournier Museum of Playing Cards

There is a weird but interesting museum in the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, the Fournier Museum of Playing Cards.

In the city where a major player on the Playing Card production, Heraclio Fournier, was set up we can find what is mend to be one of the biggest and most interesting museums on playing cards.
Inside this museum you can have a historical, technical and thematic tour through the evolution of playing cards, from the Provencal packs and German Sheets from Middle Ages to nowadays. 

The museum is inside the Rennaisance Bendaña Palace in the city center of Vitoria-Gasteiz and shows packs of cards from all the continents and with all thematics: games, literature, geography, music, magic, tarot, etc.

Closed on Mondays.
