MUSEUM

The First Mushroom Art Museum

IF YOU LIKE MUSHROOMS, COME AND PICK THEM WITH YOUR EYES.

The Museum displays over 500 pieces of mushrooms, duly catalogued by families and species, with their scientific or popular name, their characteristics, habits, culinary value or toxicity.

AN AUDIOVISUAL WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU

the good practices for being a good mushroomer, a pursuit that no-one has ever taught us.
We also have the corresponding teaching material and workshops for schools and groups.

 

The Mushroom Art Museum of Montmajor is located in the ground floor of the former town hall of Montmajor, which was vacated in 1994 with the construction of the new building. The left-hand façade was decorated with a “trompe-l’oeil” mural representing a wood and with a giant iron mushroom occupying much of the height of the building.
Inside we have the visitors’ reception, the lavatories, a projection room for an audiovisual on the history of Montmajor and its market, and a single exhibition hall accessed by walking over two glass panels under which there is a scenography of the ground of the woods with mushrooms. The ceramic representations of mushrooms are housed in display cases decorated with moss, earth and branches, natural elements of woodlands.

The interior design of the Museum is the work of Marcel Castella, the exterior mural was painted by Àngel Gispert, and the iron mushroom was constructed by Jordi Puig. For the inauguration of the Museum, the sculptor of Ca l’Escuder of El Pujol de Planés created a giant figure called “Tocat del Bolet” (a Catalan expression meaning “crazy”!)

The Mushroom Art Museum of Montmajor is a cultural facility of an eminently didactic nature, which aims to portray the world of mushrooms and their particularities to all its visitors, whether they are experts or newcomers.
