We have been to the Alhambra a few times but we have not visited the museum before. What a gem!

There is lots of information about the different pieces and you can take your time looking around. You won't be disappointed and it is... More

There are 3 parts to visiting 'La Alhambra' which we didn't know at the time of booking our tickets, but as we were staying almost opposite the palace, we decided to get our tickets the evening before - try to do this if you can, so as avoid the queues and be on time. The Palacios Nazaries has quite strict... More

See the museum to cap the visit to one of most stunning palaces in the world. The museum unfortunately does not have much signage or information in English, but the museum pieces do speak for themselves.

We loved this museum. So many interesting items to view from various eras. Stunning pieces. Would have preferred if there was some information in English to give a bit of back ground information, but apart from that, amazing!

A great place to fill in your Alhambra details. And worth it just for the views. Especially around dusk.

Within the huge Alhambra complex is a museum full of architectural and archeological pieces, as well as historic treasures. One chair and a vase from the 13th century were especially exciting. It's a small museum, so it doesn't take very long to go through it. No extra charge with your Alhambra admission. They also have special exhibits at times. We... More

Very interesting history behind the city in general, but especially the Alhambra, and the museum itself has a lot of interesting pieces / art work on display depicting this. Put aside an hour or so at least to stroll around the museum and admire what is on display.

It was fascinating to see the archeological pieces. There was also some great art! Not the most important part of Alhambra, but if you have time, wonderful.
