I looked at this museum from the outside, thought it looked a bit junky, but went inside because reviews had said it was really interesting and only 2 Euros, and it had a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence. It is actually 4 Euros not 2, and it is actually just a bizarre collection of mismatched objects that some weirdo dedicated... More

Very interesting museum - small but well worth a visit. I can't remember everything but there are guns, typewriters, sewing machines, dolls, cameras, clocks, a couple of horse drawn coaches and really good displays on witchcraft and torture (Spanish Inquisition) which our 10 yr old was fascinated by, as was I, although the mermaid gave her a fright! A pleasant... More

To say the least an eclectic mix of collections from an obsessive hoarder. Good cool place to be on a hot day. Definitely worth a visit.

Only 2€ and a lot of stuff to see. From clocks and watches, typewriters and telegraphs, and a grisly chamber of horrors downstairs. One medieval torture device consisting of a metal band which was slowly tightened round the neck, was reportedly in use in Spain until Franco's death in 1975!

Big hit with my 12-year-old son, especially the torture devices and science stuff! The witchcraft room was interesting -- but be prepared to either explain or dodge questions about some of the risqué apparatuses there!

We almost did not go in because it was close to closing time but a very nice old man insisted, saying that he would wait for us. Did not regret it. I complemented the old man and wondered whose collection it was. He said mine. To my surprise he was Mr Lara. He started collecting in his teens (now seventy... More

Eerie music in the inquisition torture area created mood. Interesting collection of watches, guns, and clothing.
