This 'museum' on the Spanish Civil War holds vital records from this period of Spanish history and about the regime of General Franco. I was unable to fully appreciate the numerous photographs, posters and documents because the majority of the explanations were only in Spanish. I did not understand the amount of space dedicated to the freemasons until subsequently reading about their situation during the war and through to 1979.

Artifacts, posters, letters, and other paraphernalia from the Civil War offered with English explanation (via handy laminated cards) and covered in several rooms. This isn't a huge museum, mind you, but more of an exhibition. I very much enjoyed it and learned more about the war. I am a fan of Guernica by Picasso and enjoyed seeing the replication done from black and white photographs of the war. The documents of refugees and propaganda from the Nationalist and the Republicans were particularly meaningful. All for free. Definitely a worthy stop to learn more about this fascinating country's political, social and military history.

We were looking forward to visiting this museum as we never got around to it last time. The layout was good with lots of documents and little if any explanation . It would be better to have a tourist radio so you can listen to a guide as you pass the different documents A good part was the Masonic area that covered all the degrees and some very old memorabilia along with a set out temple. Another upside is there is no charge for entry

One of the most interesting aspects of my visit to Salamanca. It details the events of the civil war in a way that can be easily understood.

An interesting look at the civil war but tries too hard to be neutral. Some good exhibits but little translation to English.
