This location has an eclectic display of annuities. Perhaps the Spanish Inquisition display in the basement is most unique. I found the musiem to be well worth the stop.

We were quite surprised as to all the old goodies inside. Telephones, pipes, microscopes, camaras, etc. There is an exhibition about witchcraft and torture as well. You can touch everything and even go up on the coach to take pictures. Buy the combined ticket at the tourist office (it includes this museum and 4 others).

This was a very fascinating museum in Ronda. Such variety in the exhibits from science to art to witchcraft to the inquisition. Lot of exhibits which are well kept.

Amazing collection at this quirky museum especially the medieval torture devices! My daughter being a fan of Harry Potter especially loved all the potions, mythical creatures and "magical" apparatus on display.

This is a very strange personal collection housed in a very attractive building. Well worth a visit, though some of the torture instruments & 'freaks' might scare very young children, so scout them out first! Plenty of other things to see though....

The museum is essentially a local mans own eclectic collection and makes fascinating viewing, interpretation is not all it might be, but perhaps museum goers should be made to do their own thinking when they look at the exhibits! many classic examples of a diversity of mechanical devices from revolvers to cine cameras. There are also a couple of recent... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. It's composed primarily of lots of small collections, from guns to sewing machines, from microscopes to torture devices and much, much more. I'd make this place a "must see" if you are visiting for a full day or more.

Stumbled across this little gem. Didn't look much from the outside. But once you're in there's loads to see. Definitely worth a visit.
