The guides here are very knowledgeable about the history of the Alhambra and this museum is free, included in the price of the main ticket. Interesting background to the way of life back then and some amazing artifacts.

There were beautiful pieces of furniture etc in this place and the admission is free if you have Alhambra ticket. However, there are not much information written beside the pieces so you don't really know their significance.

We had a private tour for just the two of us and it was outstanding.We toured twice. Seeing the Alhambra at night is something we will never forget. Everything from the gardens, palace rooms, fountains and history lesson from our guide was practically overwhelming. A perfect day for sure.

There is free admission as part of your Alhambra ticket. It is located inside the Charles V Palace. You will see ancient tiles, furniture, pottery and some artwork from the Moors.

We have visited before, but this time wanted to take the children. it is just as scenic and atmospheric as before, although be warned there are a lot of steps for little legs! And probably not particularly wheelchair or pushchair friendly.
