From the outside this looks a small and relatively uninviting museum, but once inside it reveals room after room of interesting exhibits. Highlights include (amongst many others) rooms displaying clocks, movie projectors, pistols, and the chamber of horrors. All exhibits are well documented in Spanish and rather quaint English translations. We expected to look around in 15 minutes but actually... More

We just happened to pass here while walking around, as we had not really planned anything apart from seeing the Bridges and the Bullring. What a pleasant surprise, a fantastic personal collection of items, do take your time and look at everything. A view from a Spanish collector. There is a contraption in the Witches area, which I would not... More

Touring Andalucia can leave a visitor with museum & monument overload. Museo Lara has no particular theme but provides something of interest for everyone and is well worth the entrance fee. The macabre tools of the Spanish Inquisition are bound to captivate younger visitors (O.K. and older ones) and the adjoining room has some very interesting items for adult viewers!... More

That just about says it all. I liked it, did not spend alot of time in it but the man is an eccentric collector and has gone to some effort to label the objects you are looking at. I have been to less carefully presented museums.

We went into Museum about 50 minutes before closing time. I am not sure if the entrance price was reduced for that reason because we only paid 1 1/2 Euros per person. We really enjoyed the series of collections presented. As others have said the lower level house many instruments of torture all of which were interesting to read about... More

Although it is hodge podge, the downstairs really provides a hands on experience of the torture tactics of the Inquisition.

Walk over the "new" bridge into the historic centre of Ronda, and on the left is an unobtrusive entrance into a hidden gem. For just a few euros each, we spent about an 1 1/2 wandering through the rooms, with each room forming a themed exhibit. The boys took great delight at the 3-muzzled blunderbuss! There was everything from porcelain... More
