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.

This is a fun museum to visit and the ground floor takes you through a whirlwind tour of recent Spanish history. Captions are displayed in Spanish and English. The building itself is cool and attractive with an interesting central atrium where old Spanish carriages are displayed. Be warned if you are intending to take children with you that the downstairs... More

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!

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!
