Particularly liked Ortiz, Reya (?) and the... More

The Alhambra Museum explains many of the things one sees at the Nazari Palace, especially the lions at the Lion Fountain. There is also a very beautiful Vase of the Gazelles, with a golden sheen. From my research it may have been made in Malaga during the 14th or 15th century. There are only 8 of these vases in the... More

We were there in the off season sit was not too crowded and the queues were short. In high season I would suggest you book your tickets in advance and beware rthe high season parking charges. Having said all that, take your time to absorb the atmosphere and there is so much to observe and marvel at. Some views are... More

There is an amazing array of history and the buildings demonstrate the talents and skills of builders that seems to have died with them!!

The museum is right outside the entry gate to the Alhambra. It had many pretty artifacts but I found most of them overpriced.I most bought some magnets.

A huge place, you need at least 6hours to see all the attractions and museum in Alhambra. It will be better if you buy the night ticket to Nasrid Palace and come again the next day to enjoy the other areas, so you wont exhaust it. The ornaments in Nasrid Palace is faboulous, great arts. and also huge garden. You... More

The museum takes up one corner of the Palace of Charles V and contains the best collection of Spanish-Moorish Art in general and of Nasrid Art in particular that you will find in one showing. The artifacts represent items used within Alhambra from slightly before 1500. Alhambra is such a fantastic experience, every visitor should take the time to see... More

This was included in the one-price ticket and definitely worth a visit as they have a lot of the original pieces you see throughout the rest of the complex.

As I noted in an earlier review, there are some very good collections that help explain the context of the Alhambra. Upstairs are painting collections--less important than the downstairs exhibits
