    Celebration of treasured art form
    A splendid exposition and celebration of the much loved art form. We were delighted to see so many art works acclaiming exemplars of the performances. An audiovisual was an apt introduction. Passing the stage it continued an enjoyable visit over a couple of floors.

    Multisensory Experience
    An engaging and multisensory experience. It lives and breathes dance. The drumming and dance classes added hugely to the experience. If you want to truly immerse yourself in flamenco this is the place to be. Highly recommended. Quite the best way to document this vibrant art from.

    Authentic and amazing!
    We had pre-booked tickets to go to the museum and then see the Flamenco show while staying in Seville. You can go anytime during the day to the museum and get given your tickets to attend the show later. The museum is very interesting with lots of videos, art work and traditional outfits to see. It was also fairly quiet so you didn't feel rushed and could really understand the history of Flamenco. That evening we returned for the 8:45pm showing, the stage is set up in the main foyer and it's a very intimate performance. The dancers, singers and guitar player were absolutely incredible and really told a story through dance and music. This was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday and a must see!

There are few health warnings before coming to this event..
1. Come early as they have crammed a lot of seats into the space and the seats at the back mean that you can have a blocked view due to the pillars

2. At 25 Euros each you expect a little social distancing and good seating but the space was maximised to generate as many seats as possible. As there is no rake this means that apart from the first two rows its hard to see the dancers feet.

But- the dancing is fantastic, the music is excellent and as long as you come prepared you will be startled.

Ive been to many Flamenco shows in Spain (and in Sevilla) and this was one of the most pleasant. There were not photographers, no meals or beverages served, just a good flamenco show, and a wonderful gift shop1

The show lasted about an hour, the locale was easy to find. The only bummer was that photos were not allowed, though I did sneak a few and got poked by an employee (I deserved it!).

There were three musicians and three dancers and they were all excellent.

We did not visit the museum - we attended the 7:00 (19 hr) show. In a word - spectacular. If they had tickets available for the 8:30 show we would have stayed for it as well.

It's tight seating on uncomfortable chairs but well worth it. The show sells out so you need to pre-book. We booked through our hotel once we arrived.

They sell beverages but not food.

Thank you very much for your opinion. All staff in the museum and the artists that perform every night in our PATIO or in the VAULT, we try to improve every day to make the experience of our visitors in something beautiful and gratifying, and for those who see flamenco for the First time, after visiting the museum with its explanations and seeing a show, become lovers of this art, intangible heritage of humanity, called FLAMENCO. And if you are already lovers of this art, we hope that every time you visit us you will see new things and you will enjoy them. Hope to see you again! Thanks again for your comments.

Visited for the show not the museum. We loved it - passionate, wonderful guitar, singing and dancing. Felt real and not just a show for tourists. Also good news no videoing allowed so could just absorb the experience.

We just turned up mid afternoon mid week and had no wait to enter. Not busy inside. Only a small museum but very well structured. Reception offer good advice on where to start and how to maximise visit. Dispays and videos in multiple languages. While over 4 floors, majority of main history, videos and displays on first floor. Found very interesting. Allow around one hour.

Very good museum that will teach you many details about flamenco. Many exhibits are also available in English. The electronics were not always working, however, so many of the stations didn’t translate to English or couldn’t be heard properly. Overall really enjoyed and learned about this dance, though I suspect if all was functional would have learned more. 10euros per person so not cheap.

Most reviews on this page are about the show. I can't comment on that, since we only went to the museum. I wanted to take my wife to learn about flamenco, its origins, the different styles, etc. (my family is from Spain). We were really sad to be disappointed in this museum. It is definitely not worth the 10 euro admission fee. Here's why:

When you arrive, you are given a laminated sheet that explains in bullet points what you'll see in each of the rooms. I was very excited to see that it started with the origins of flamenco - where each element (the movement of the hands, the rhythm, etc.) came from. We headed to that first room: it's just a screen with a psychedelic video of slow motion animation accompanied by background Indian music. And...that was it. No exhibit, no audio commentary, nothing. We honestly thought this was just the entrance to the actual exhibit. Also, the room is pitch dark so if you haven't read the four or five bullet points on the sheet you'll be lost.

The next room delves into the "palos" of flamenco - let's say, the various dances and styles. These you see on interactive screens. The presentation is a bit dry in terms of text, but what really detracts from the experience is the fact that behind you there's a large screen with flamenco music playing loudly, so you can't properly listen to the music in your earphones.
The third room is fairly large. Here, the push for the museum to be interactive unravels: there are some 7 or more screens playing music and commentary quite loudly, so you can't really hear the presentation in front of you. Even then, there's really no rhyme or reason to it all. No chronology, no cohesiveness. Speaking loftily about flamenco is NOT a substitute for interesting information. We love flamenco, that's why we're here!

In the end, we both walked out of the museum feeling empty and thirsty, with a bullet-point knowledge of the origins of flamenco - with such an interesting cultural background, we SHOULD have come out with at least a few interesting facts to talk about. We give it one star because we were exposed to the different palos, but, considering the lack of context, you can achieve as much on your own without having to pay 10 euro.

Summary: hi-tech without substance = gimmick. A pity for a museum created by an artist I admire and respect. The show might be worth it (we didn't go - found much cheaper elsewhere), but skip the museum.
