The Alhambra is a large site, so if you miss this museum, do not worry. Not much to interest us here.

This museum is stunning! It is located on the second floor of the Palacio de Carlos V. What a great spot for a museum. A beautiful collection and when we were there in January there was a temporary exhibition of Fortuny's work that was amazing. Free for students and seniors.

Perfect way to make the most of Alhambra visit, as this little museum has a tonne of really cool artifacts from the palace that you can't see otherwise. Audioguide very well done for this section.

Gotta get there super early people. I recommend taking the trolley or mini bus really cheap and runs most of the day.

This little museum is not expensive but it is worth your time, even if only to escape the crowds at the Palace. There are genuine artefacts and lots of explanations in English. This place is well organised and if you can't get into the palace, a must!

This is a very well done archaeological museum in the Alhambra that we almost missed because we did not know it was there.

The museum has exhibits that help to explain how the Alhambra was built. There are architectural columns, fountains, lattice windows, doors, tiling, marquetry and ceramics. There are also excellent samples of plasterwork, since the Nazari artisans were experts in this art. There are two stone lions found outside the Alhambra. The most important exhibit is the Gazelle Vase. This is... More

You go to Granada because of the Alhambra and Generalife. The gardens, the history and the beautiful views make your visit unforgettable.
