It is divided into two plants: the residence of the author and his study. In addition to the construction itself and the furniture, which were designed by Broner himself, you can also contemplate part of his work as drawings or various paintings.
Being built on one of the cliffs of Sa Penya, in the area of the Santa Lucia bastion, it has spectacular views of the sea and Formentera. Housing was widely Reformed before its opening as a museum.
Erwin Broner moved to Ibiza in the middle of the 30 years to escape the Nazi regime.
