Anyone interested in gardening or Bonsai would love this half hour 45 minute walk, especially when it's only 4 Euros. Very attractive and enjoyable. A little tricky to find because it's tucked into a park just north of the old quarter.

This place has very beautiful bonsais and it is really worth a visit if you are a bonsai lover. It's right in the middle of Marbella, so easily accessible.

It's worth a visit, especially if you are a bonsai fan or if you want to discover the splendour of these trees. Both new and old trees, well kept. There is a little lake inside, and you can take pictures of the tuttles chilling on the white limestone.

We stumbled across this place, so thought we'd go down the steps for a look. We went down the steps, which smelt strongly of urine, went over to the pond, which looked like Pea soup with a few white (green tinged) ducks. Litter all over. Very disappointing.

I have visited the Museo del Bonsai several times to spend hours taking photographs of exceptional little trees. This place is world class in bonsai exibitions! I don't understand the negative vibrations from other reviewers: some complain about the price (@ 4.00 is, in my opinion, a bargain considering what you can see here; other sites in the UK seem...

We visited the Museo Bonsai on Saturday July 26, 2014. If you really love Bonsai trees I guess this would be a fascinating place to visit. They have a good collection of Bonsai trees. They charged 4 Euro per ticket to see the Bonsai trees. I thought that was a bit too expensive. We spent more time in the park... More

Marbella is a great holiday destination but when on a longer winter break, going for a walk along the beach every day can begin to pale. That's where places like the tree museum come into play. It is not difficult to reach (basically at the north east end and just outside the old town). It is big enough and has... More

I forget how much it cost to go in but honestly you can see just as good in the major garden centres in the UK. Maybe I exaggerate a little but many of them were not even particularly old. There were nice gardens and a lake with ducks etc. surrounding the area, but it was the only place that I... More

. I have seen more interesting greenhouses elsewhere. . . Kew Gardens, for example! And on a much larger scale, too. This is admittedly meant to be on a small scale, but there are not that many exhibits, no interesting information sheets or notices, so although the twisted and distorted trees have a certain curiosity value, it wasn't somewhere I'd...

If you like Bonsai this place is a must to visit if you are near Marbella . There is a huge variety to be seen in attractive surroundings just outside the Old Town of Marbella set in a park. We visited in February therefore several of the trees were not in leaf but even so it was well worth the... More
