What a charming museum this is! A short, English or Spanish tour takes you through the items in the collection. It is intimate and interesting so our children aged 10, 9 and 6 could easily relate to the items on display and not get bored.

We went this morning and do not regret it! It was cool-but I had no expectations of anything going in. I just thought, "Museum! Lets go!" So we paid the 3 euro each suggested donation and got a very nice tour in English by a lovely girl. There's no way this place would've been comprehensible to us without one. It... More

This museum is located in a house that was built by the Pisa family shortly after the reconquest of Granada by the Catholic Kings in 1492. It is located in the lower Albaicin area of Granada just above the Plaza de Santa Ana. The Pisa family supported many charitible works, including those of a local priest in the 1500s (... More
