|The Museum of Humour, located in the Cultural Centre in Fene in the Borough of Ferrol, is the only one of its kind anywhere in the Spanish State.

Under the direction of Xoaquín Marín, every year the Museum holds the Curuxa Awards for Humour with prizes for drawings, literature and photography as well as the Humour Study Days which have been running since the Museum was founded in 1984.
The Museum is open for visits on working days from 9:00 to 12:00 and 17:00 to 20:00 h.
