This museum is well organized and easy to find. I learned a lot but was left affected and disturbed by the or torture devices and it should be said this place is not for the faint of heart.

This museum is an eclectic collection of things but the most fascinating and gruesome are the instruments of torture from the Spanish Inquisition. I felt quite sick having seen them. There are great film posters.

This little museum had a bit of everything. Fans, movie advertisement cards, scientific instruments, typewriters, sewing machines.... It was as though a well to do gentleman decided to display his stuff. I guess there is hope for hoarders everywhere.

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.
