The collection ranges from vintage typewriters and other artefacts of the early twentieth century, over guns, carriages, and archaeological artefacts to instruments of torture and a collection of ingredients for witchcraft as well as various oddities like a (supposedly fake) mermaid mummy. And that is - quite literally - not half of it. I found it fascinating like many other... More

Eclectic mix of one man's collection. Film memorabilia to clay pipes and carriages. Great gruesome Inquisition and witchcraft basement section that kids would love. Most explanations in Spanish and English.

An eclectic mix of clocks, cameras, dolls, weapons and carriages with a macabre display of torture equipment and "witchcraft" downstairs. Sensitive kids might be a little scared by some of the exhibits...

This museum is relatively small but packed with interesting machines, artifacts and has even its own medieval torture chamber. It was a very educational round as well as quite entertaining. Recommended for families

Small museum but interesting witchcraft section. Check out the Maquina Consoladora, a medieval "mechanical dildo" machine that the Inquisition branded as being an instrument of the devil.

We popped in here during our visit to Ronda to cool off from the heat of the day. To say this museum is eclectic is an understatement. Film cameras, phones, carriages, clocks, knives, bull fighting memorabilia, a random chapel to a local priest etc. To cap it off, in the basement was a display of torture equipment used by the...

Very special place, much to see. Plenty for everyone, whether they are interested in the history of gadgets like typewriters, or cameras, archaeology or things that bump in the night. Downstairs there is an interesting place to go visit. Not for the faint hearted though some ot the items are pretty gruesome. But all the same worth a visit.

This is a private collection of a man who has rather broad interesse-spectrum. Varies from paintings, dolls, science machinery, film machines and old torture apparatus and much much more. The audioguide is a very usefool tool in this museum to get to understand the meaning of all of this!
