Valladolid is Madrid in small, with historical buildings were kings and known characters like Cervantes or Christopher Columbus lived. It was once the capital of Spain.<br><br>It's also home of the international contest of tapas, so great food and wines are everywhere.

This free museum is contained in 3 separate rooms scattered through out an old religious building. Do NOT think you've seen everything if you haven't been upstairs! That is where the best rooms are! A wonderful collection of artifacts from African displayed in well lit modern cases or dioramas. If you're tired of seeing Spanish art, but love art, head over to this great collection.

The Fundacion Alberto Jimenez-Arellano Alonso is located in the beautiful Palacio Santa Cruz, which was constructed in the 15th century by the very powerful Cardinal Mendoza. Its cloister is beautiful. The museum has beautiful African art and is probably the best museum of its kind in Spain.

Strolling through the lovely historical streets of this ancient city I beheld a Palace with open doors. Curosity got the better of me and I first looked at the ground floor than went up to the select exhibits on the first floor which amazed me for their uniqueness. The staff were also very courteous.

A surprise find. Part of the University of Valladolid. Tucked away. But quite quite stunning. Better, far better than many "ethnographic" museums in major European cities. Fantastic. Why is it not more well known?

Like other reviewers I thought this a really worthwhile museum to visit. Information in English is limited to brief object labels. The longer explanatory texts were in Spanish only. That meant that I did not understand what I was looking at. But I did get a sense of wonder at the strangeness of the objects and an appreciation of the skill and imagination with which they had been made.

It is rewarding for us to read how the museum inspired you in some way and get your senses. Sorry for the inconvenience about the explanatory texts. We have a guide at the beggining of each room -in English and French-, but we will work to make them more visible. Thank you for your feedback, Michael :)
