We visited the museum on a rainy day in Colemnar. It's quite small, but quite interesting. We may have only spent €2 on the entry fee but we spent over €11 on honey products that claim to cure everything!

Quaint museum, mainly geared up for the schoolchildren I think. There was no English spoken except in the DVDs, which was interesting and informative but the English guide pamphlets had run out. The museum is interesting, educational and the tasting was very enlightening. Quite limited...More

A lot of thought has been put in to this museum that is primarily focussed on educating children about the honey bee. That said, it would be a tragedy for someone to visit Colmenar when the museum is open without stepping inside.

this museum is a must visit for visitors to our village, gives the history of the original name {Colmena} meaning beehive, and the history of the making of our beautiful honey.
