Nice museum but poor presentation

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... read more

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.

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...
