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.

This is a very interesting museum with a varied collection of items, from sewing machines to a blunderbuss cabinet! The basement houses a fascinating range of torture equipment, complete with descriptions on their use! Well worth checking out if you have an hour or two to spare in Ronda.

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.
