Museo Casa de Los Tiros de Granada is a 16th century palace, as it was built to reflect the architecture of those times. Its original name came from the cannons that appear between its battlements. It was actually part of the wall of the local neighbourhood, and that is the reason it looks like a military fortress. Over time things changed. Now it's a museum exhibiting local history. It has arts and crafts and the like. Worth a visit if you happen to be nearby, but not necessarily a must see.

The small museum offering a history of Granada and Sacromonte (gypsies) is located in an historical palace and thus, the entrance is not that obvious from the street. Surprisingly, it was free to enter. Inside, yes, there is a wonderfully carved and ornate ceiling in one room, but of more interest were old historical photos of Granada, as well as many exhibits and paintings.
Unfortunately, there was no English explanations or audio, so whilst we could elicit interest from the photos, naturally, something was lost in the translation. Still, worth a short visit.

At present here is located the museum of the history of Granada city. The citizens of the EU can visit this museum free of charge. There are collections of paintings, sculptures, pottery, handicrafts. But the most interesting thing inside the building is a hall Cuadra Dorada. Its stone walls are decorated with the frescoes of ancient warriors, and astonishing ceiling are adorned with gilded bas-reliefs of Spanish kings.
In fact, Casa de los Tiros was an old fortress built in the sixteenth century. Now only the tower is survived from the previous building. The facade of the tower is decorated by five sculptures of Antiquity heroes and this indicates that the tower is a great example of Renaissance. Also a large sword, piercing a heart, hangs over a main gate. Have no idea what kind of love it symbolizes... :)

This is free iand it's an easy drop in to see some examples of Andalusian crafts, vintage photos, odds and ends, and a nice group of portraits of the major players, including Ferdinand and Isabella, the Catholic monarchs, who were not pretty people. Granada has several places which are fun little ways to grab a bite of history, and this is one.

This was one of the first grand houses built after the Reconquista of Granada. Only the tower remains of the 16th century palace. The carved wooden ceiling is well worth the visit. It depicts heroes and heroines of the Reconquista from several centuries.
The building is also a museum and houses various exhibits. But the exterior facade, the entranceway, and the wooden ceiling are the stars.
If you speak Spanish, then chat with the attendant. I got some interesting history and a good tip on where to visit some interesting local history nearby.

Historic museum with interesting photos and images of people and a few objects.
However all information is in Spanish.
No information in any other languages, which is a pity!
Images are lacking annotation and description.

There's very little of interest here, it exists probably because its creation was some politician's pet project. The contents are a hodgepodge of unremarkable objects and art that do not together tell a meaningful story.

This 16th centure palace was named House of the Shots for the many musket barrels thawt stick out from its facade. The portraits of Spanish royalty including Ferdinand and Isabella are quite somber and interesting. Don't miss the carved wooden ceiling in the Hall of Gold.

Features the ceremonial sword of the last Nasrid ruler of Granada, Sultan Boabdil but was oddly not marked as such, and sadly very little other Muslim era material. I was expecting something more incorporating the history of Muslim Spain, however the items on show where largely of high quality, focusing a lot of 1800's Granada. It featured quite a lot of Alhambra related pieces, it was interesting to see old pictures of its past decay.
There were a beautiful set of 13 paintings from Isabelle and Ferdinand to Phillip IV, including one of the famous regal paintings of Charles V.
All up a quite good museum, in a beautiful old Moorish building that was taken over by one of the Castilian elite on the conquering of the city in 1492, with a massive iron gate characteristic of 11/12th C Mooridh stronholds. It had been renovated after 1492 and portions of the original Catholic/Castilian wall freezes existed as were as fully revonated areas. Pity about the spin on history.

Granada is amazing for it's accessibility and it's inexpensive attractions. This museum is a 16th century Renaissance building that houses a collection of artwork--paintings, sculpture and lithographs. Just walking through old homes is pretty cool for me, personally, but there are amazing ceilings in this casa that are incredible--gilded black ceilings with with portraiture, walls with the remnants (in many cases well preserved) of paintings in the plaster, and things like a suit of armor, old swords, and some old furniture. If you are in Granada for more than just a couple of days (which is enough typically for the tourist card attractions), and love old buildings and art, this is a nice stop.
