Third visit here. A little pilgrimage to see if the trees have grown any! Seriously, this is a dear little museum offering an oasis of calm. Only a ten minute stroll from Orange Square and only 4 euros to go in. Bonsai enthusiast or just curious it's worth a visit. It only needs half an hour of your time and... More

A small, but interesting little piece of horticultural history which transports you to another world.

I visited on a whim with my family after coming across the museum within a pretty park after wondering through the old town. The entrance fee wasn't very much, I recall it being about €4 each and was pleasantly surprised by the collection they had. I wouldn't say I'm a bonsai tree enthusiast particularly, but I must say that actually... More

Not much to see. A couple of rooms and an outdoor area. Nice water feature. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to see it all. Small charge.

as a definite bonsai enthusiast we had to search out this treat while in marbella. if you walk through marbella's lovely old quarter it takes some finding, but keep going, the museum is located in a long narrow park in a big building near a big bridge that spans over the park. some 25 years old? the main central part...

This was a nice place to wander around and just enjoy some time away form the beach. The beach is lovely, as a break wandering up thorough the town and old town and the pondering over what these little trees must have seen and heard in their long lives is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

This museum was a real surprise. It is small but then that is very fitting to the exhibits within. Set in a delightful park the museum is a real treat. Beautifully crafted Bonsai which are just works of art. At every turn you can see the love and dedication put into each tree. The sheer ages of some of the... More

A bit og a disappointment; its a lovely location and the building is brilliants but... OK the trees are amazing but the presentation leaves a lot to be desired. Not sure how you show 400 year old mini tress off to be 'exciting' ?

The bonsai museum is located in the park to the north of the Old town. We asked the hotel, but they did not know of its existence. Well worth a visit. At 4 euros each, you are contributing to its maintenance. All the tress were well displayed and cared for. We did not expect to find a Bonsai Museum here,... More
