Great Exhibitions for good price

Small but well stocked museum. Great witchcraft and torture sections, explaining the Spanish Inquisition. For 4 euros it's definitely recommend

A little bit of everything, literally, including instruments of torture, old movie posters and dioramas of witches and the Spanish Inquisition!

This museum is well worth a visit. It has various collections including firearms, pocket watches, weapons, French porcelain, etc. The lower floor is dedicated to the inquisition/torture and witchcraft. Items nicely displayed and with clear explanations in Spanish and English. The building itself is lovely, very clean and all that can be done to make it easy for less mobile... More

Museo LARA has a variety of private collections, which are each interesting historically, culturally and and beautifully arranged. Weapons, science equipement, sewing machines, typewriters, ancient acordions and even a basement floor dedicated to the time of the inquisition and witch craft. It is located a short walk from the famous bridge, and is a good spot of interest to stop... More

So much to see here. You can take as long as you want to and take pictures-we took lots, interacting with the exhibits, which makes it both interesting and fun. Half price for "seniors" so almost free entry! Came away feeling we had spent the best hour of the day here. Don't miss this when you're in Ronda.

This was a totally unexpected treasure in the centre of Ronda very near the Tajo. The museuem is housed in a typical andalusian palace. It houses the private collection of a local man, who we were fortunate enough to meet. His daughter was selling tickets at the door. Very moderately priced at €4. It comprises a very varied and complete... More

It was worth the money to pay a visit. Especially the part with the torture tools, our kids enjoyed that the most. Great that they could try some of the displays. Nicely layed out.

We happened upon the museum and chose to give it a try. Our favorite part was the basement, which is delightfully creepy - it's devoted to the Inquisition and to witchcraft.

A privately owned museum covering everything from pocket watches to old sowing machines, first generation typewriters, and you name it. It is really worth the time to go through it.
