The Running of the Bulls (San Fermin Festival) museum had only just opened when we had the privilege to visit. Excellent souvenir shop at the front of the museum where you buy your ticket. A well educated local guide then takes you on a tour of the museum and tells you the rich history of this famous festival. Then you... More

A great experience during fiesta, and even more so when the real bulls are not in town. These are good people, and loyal to the fiesta and city. Great place to take your kids, too.

Although this museum is located at the back of a souvenir shop, don't let its appearance put you off. It is well worth the admission price as it gives you far more information about the history of the running of the bulls than you can imagine.

If you want to learn the history of Running with the Bulls, this is the place to go. Lots to see and learn and experience - very well done and was worth the price of admission.

We were there last July 2011) and the museum accompanied the excellent time we had at the festival. If you go to Pamplona and expect to just watch, you are likely to... More

To look at this museum from the street you would think it was tacky. The (let's be honest) store front looks like so many other tourist traps. The museum is actually behind and in the basement of this souvenir shop. It was very interesting to see the history of the Running of the Bulls. Pictures and documents from the last... More
