Obviously you have to have some interest in Bonsai trees to go. They intrigue me so we took a visit there. A lovely collection of Bonsai's that are set in a nice walk through. Enjoyable and would go again. Staff were very helpful too in our somewhat broken English/Spanish conversation kind of handwaving mime thing we had going on;)

Stumbled on this Bonsai museum/attraction by chance in a quiet park near the Old Town. Worth a visit to see quite a large collection of bonsai trees - some are hundreds of years old. Plus a pond with lots of terrapins

If you are intersested in Bonsai trees this is a great place to go. However, if you prefer natural history or local culture or some of the local social history that southern Spain is world-renowed for you could try, er, um, or, or else ..........!!!!! ZZZzzzz

This is a beautiful place to visit. Full of species (even a 400 y/o japanese tree) The content is great but I think they have a very poor presentation. There is no pictures or descriptions of what you are seeing. No technical explanation either of how they create a bonsai or how they keep them for so long. The good... More

I have visited it several times and plan to visit it again shortly with a friend who has never been there The Location is near the Blue Bridge in the "Old Town" and it is a "destination" place of interest as it is not widely publicised There are probably more than 100 specimens - all very well cared for- the...

Nicely located and for plant lovers, it's probably wonderful. To me, it was good to stand long enough in place to hear the Bonsai grow!

Almost interesting and quite small. 4 euro for adults and 3 for children, possibly worth it, but I wouldn't go there again.

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.
