Andorra is a small, independent principality located in the Pyrenees between France and Spain long known for skiing, shopping, and as a tax haven for the rich. Now, for fans of motorsport, it is home to a brand-new, two-story museum curated by none other than three-time MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo.

Prior to cutting the ceremonial ribbon earlier this week officially opening "World Champions by 99," Lorenzo reportedly spent four years collecting a wide variety of memorabilia from many Grand Prix greats, including Americans Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, and Nicky Hayden.

Lorenzo's passion for Formula 1 is also clear, with tributes to such giants of the sport as Phil Hill, Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna, and Michael Schumacher. The 29-year-old Majorcan himself contributed to the museum with personal helmets, leathers, and the Yamaha YZR-M1 on which he won the 2015 MotoGP world title.
