The Museum is an emblematic building from the beginning of the 20th century, which housed the old Reig tobacco factory in Sant Julià de Lòria, that ran from 1909 until 1957, period where the tobacco crop and manufacture were fundamental to people and villages of Andorra. With a multimedia system, the visitor is guided trough the factory where the different work techniques with tobacco, the products manufacture and commercialization are explained. The museum contains tools, devices, machines, furniture and aromas, which were used in the factories in the first half of the 20th century. The Tobacco Museum is an initiative of the Fundació Julià Reig.

This takes about an hour, it is in a redtored tobacco factory. There is a pervading aroma of tobacco. Combination of film, photographs and old machinery. We found it very interesting especially as iwe were able to listen to the commentary in English
