It won’t take you long to visit this little museum, but it’s worth popping in if you’re in Guadalest old town. The three storey building is a reconstruction of an 18th century Guadalest farmhouse complete with agricultural equipment and farm utensils. Admission free but donations...More

Certainly worth visiting as you walk up the main street, an insight into how hard life in a Spanish rural town would have been. Donation suggested.

It gives you the image of past times of hard labor, with instruments for olive oil and cellar with pig for meat and goat for milk, simple and natural. No photos allowed, too bad

Free entry, obviously donations when you leave are appreciated. Set over three floors it gives an insight into Spanish life as it was years ago. 20/30 minutes should be enough to take in most of the exhibits. Worth the effort.

Excellently introduces and presents the Spanish way of life and conditions. A lot of samples of typical Spanish household utensils, appliance, work tools, clothing.

We went inside as there was no entrance fee. Quite nice to see how the people lived. Would not pay for it.

An example of a typical original home in this village. About 5 rooms to go through so doesn't take long. The museum is well maintained and is FREE, so please leave a donation for its upkeep.
