this is a quirky little museum with everything from a film section to a inquisition, to plates to weapon etc. There is something there for everyone.It is located just across the bridge on the old side.I enjoyed it especially the movie/film section complete with old posters.

This is a collection that everyone should be able to find something of interest - historic photographs, old science equipment, handguns, typewriters, costumes, instruments of torture, etc. I didn't get an audio guide, but found some information in English in different parts of the museum. The Inquisition section is a bit chilling, but fascinating. Well worth the visit.

A treasure trove of fascinating items including torture devices from the inquisition. Very cheap entrance fee as well. Well worth a visit if in Ronda.

An unusual collection of items from the past- e.g., weapons, scientific equipment, photography, etc. My wife like the Spanish Inquisition display and the torture devices... should I be concerned?

We discovered this delightful museum on our trip to Ronda in Spain. It was a fascinating collection of everything you can think of from Roman crystal and coins to photographs of the 1940’s and 1950's glamorous film stars. We had great fun trying to remember all their names. Downstairs was a collection of the instruments of torture from the Grand... More

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

Get an handheld audio guide to help you go through the museum, a really interesting museum inspired by the owner. The kids will really enjoy it especially the Inquistion and Witchcraft exhibits downstairs. Money well spent.

Not usual type of museum - just private collection of "everything". Thus exhibition forms the elusive feeling of the door ajar to some small part of real life in the past - the part that is usually not shown in detail in classbooks, movies and pop-documentaries. Besides that there's the informative collection of inquisition torture instruments

When it comes to its top attractions, Ronda is very much an outdoors-type of town, so you may need a Plan B if you get a wet day (as we had). The Museo Lara (aka Lara Museum) can play a key part of such a plan, keeping you out of the rain and probably entertained and even titillated for at... More

This - if by no means the largest - was one of the most fascinating museums I have ever visited, with so many interesting aspects, from cine-cameras and weapons to a gruesome history of witchcraft, the Inquisition and instruments of torture. I would have loved to have spent more than an hour in it - in fact I could easily... More
