Well, we loved it. Gruesome yes, a bit disturbing yes, horrific yes but also educating, thought provoking & a feeling of gratitude that you didn’t in those times. Highly recommend.

There are only a very few Jewish families left in Granada and this is a family run museum. I thought they did an excellent job of presenting information on Jewish life in Spain. The family was very friendly and we stayed quite a while. Interesting.

There are excellent Flamenco shows each night at 21.30. Visiting the museum entitles you to a discount at the Flamenco show.
