We fell upon this museum while wondering around the streets, and when we walked in, we were amazed at the diversity of the exhibits, not one theme but many under one roof, was particulary amused by the witch craft and torture sections, but, perhaps keep the children from this section. Good light hearted entertainment for a few hours of the... More

Museum is located just by the bridge and is a popular tourist destination. There is plenty to see with a wide variety of exhibits that most will find interesting. The witchcraft and torture exhibits in the basement is somewhat gruesome, and may not be suitable for children or those with a nervous disposition.

You can almost walk past this museum but fortunately I had checked in a guide book beforehand. I thought it would be cheesy considering how inexpensive it its. However, this is an amazing place to visit. So many different things to see that have been collected over the decades by the owner, Senor Lara, who I believe is now 70... More

The Lara museum is great and provides lots of entertainment for just 2 euro. Cameras, guns, carriages, bibles, typewriters and my favourite the torture contraptions are some of the things you will see in the museum. An enjoyable experience overall.

The Lara Museum is a great place, you can have hours of entertainment for only €2! The first thing they told us on entry is that you are allowed to touch and play with any of the exibits that are not behind glass but we didn't expect this to include the Spanish Inquisition implements of torture. The museum itself is... More

For just 2 euros each we spent nearly an hour gently exploring this very interesting museum. Clock, watches, guns, cameras, typewriters are just a few of the many ranges of items to llok at. There is an interesting section on witchcraft and the Spanish Inquasition too. Best Museum for us in Ronda.

Housed in a beautiful mansion, this museum has a wonderful collection of just about everything, from watches to weapons, even including a rather lurid exhibition on the Inquisition. It is just the place for a lengthy browse on a rainy day (and they do happen in Ronda!) Well worth a lengthy visit!

Lara Museo has something for everyone - from a history of clocks, bullfighting, scientific and film instruments to weapons, and implements of torture used during the Spanish inquisition. My two daughters love to write and found plenty of source material. The inquisition stuff was displayed in all its cruel barbarism - judas cradles, cat claws etc leaving us all slightly... More

This was in our package Tourist Ticket from the tourist office. So glad I wanted to visit this museum. Much larger than it appears from outside. They have everything, could have spent more time but had only one day in Ronda. Well worth your time when visiting Ronda.

this is a quirky little museum with everything from a film section to a inquisition, to plates to weapon etc. There is something there for everyone.It is located just across the bridge on the old side.I enjoyed it especially the movie/film section complete with old posters.
