It is an extraordinary museum with the biggest collection of playing cards on the world! A visit takes about an hour and it's a very good time there. In the shop you can buy many interesting decks of cards, even the original ones more than 50 years old!

We only came here because we bought a ticket that gives you entrance to all the main museums in the city. You can buy it at any of the main museums and it saves several euros if you visit all of them. We thought it seemed worth the money and so we decided to go to both this museum and... More

There are two museums here and based on the other reviews and a time crunch we chose to go first through the card museum. No complaints (it is free) but not all that exciting either. If you are a history buff or really like cards this is going to be special for you. If neither are your passion your going... More

Inside a Rennaissance Palace you will have a historical, technical and thematic tour through the evolution of playing cards, from the Provencal packs and... More

First time we heard about this museum we were so-caled 'speaking' to a local man '(my castellano is of beginner level) when at least I could understand him a bit knew that it's one of the most interesting museums of Vitoria and it's free of charge.
