The Montmajor Mushroom Art Museum
It is located in the municipality of Montmajor, in the middle of the urban nucleus, right in the Plaza del Mercat, the true nerve center of a municipality with a scattered population that, as its name indicates, has in this place the meeting point and gathering of its inhabitants and the site of the weekly market held every Wednesday.
Access can be done through different secondary roads, although the easiest way to get there, whether you are coming from Berga or Solsona, is along the road from Berga to Solsona, the C-149, entering through any of the two accesses to the urban nucleus, accesses that converge precisely in the aforementioned Plaza del Mercat, where the Mushroom Art Museum is located.
This cultural facility occupies the premises of the former Town Hall, a building from the mid-20th century that was no longer used as the headquarters of the municipal offices in 1994, when the current Town Hall building was inaugurated. Later, in 2021, the second floor was renovated, a space where talks, workshops, and various cultural activities can be held.
