The collections Hernández Sanz - Hernández Mora are exhibited since 2015 in the historic building of Ca n'Oliver, the magnificent Oliver’s family house, exponents of the bourgeoisie of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Mahón. This property stands out for its interior decorations in the ceilings realized by Italian painters, its imperial staircase that becomes a symbol and the tower. Among the contents of the exhibition we find the Oliver’s family history, a review of the British Menorca, the importance of the port of Mahón, historical cartography of the island, how was life in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Menorca and the enormous artistic legacy of the Hernández. There is also a printmaking section by the Insular Council of contemporary Menorcan artists or related to the island. The center also consists of a temporary exposition hall and an auditorium. The Hernández Sanz-Hernández Mora collections are made up of graphic work, furniture, decorative arts and an extensive library of menorcan origin. They were donated by the teacher Joan Hernández Mora in 1983 and by Javier Hernández Montesinos in 1999. With the donation made by the latter, who was the grandson of Francesc Hernández Sanz and nephew of the former, the great family collection, which was initially started by Hernández Sanz, was once again reunited. In 2005, the artistic work of Francesc Hernández Mora was also added with a donation by Antoni Seguí Parpal. • TIMETABLE Sumer ( 1 of May to 30 of October) Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 10:00 to 13:30h and 18:00 to 20:00h Sunday: 10:00h to 13:30h Monday: Closed Winter ( 1 of November to 30 of april) Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 10:00 to 13:30h and 18:00 to 20:00h Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 10:00h to 13:30h Monday: Closed
