Was not sure what to expect but enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the history of Nerja and it’s surrounds. And plenty of history there has been. Clean, spaced out and well explained. Worth a visit if you can!

This is a compact small museum that really packs a punch! The signage is really good and easy to follow, the audio-visual presentations are excellent and the information on the exhibits is clear and comprehensive! As I hinted at in the title, our visit to the Cueva would have made a greater impact if we had come to the museum beforehand. It is really good to have some background knowledge first - it really brings the caves to life!

This museum hold the archaeological findings from Nerja Caves and therefore is well worth a visit after visiting the Caves. Tickets for the Caves provide free entry to the Museum. We spent more time in the Museum than the Caves which shows how good it is.

If you visit the Caves entry to the museum is free within the next 48 hours.There are four floors. The first and second deal with the history of Nerja and of the two the upper was more interesting for me due to the video on the production of cane sugar about which I knew next to nothing, and another about the use of Esparto grass. There's also a wall about the discovery of the caves. From there the lift takes you down to the first basement floor which is entirely dedicated to the caves with an interesting video and explanations about the various formations in the caves as well as the insects and the peoples probably living there through the various ages. There are also artefacts found in the caves including the small skeleton of 'Pepita'.

The second basement floor houses temporary exhibitions and we just take a quick peek as the art in this one is not particularly to our taste. Altogether we spend over an hour in the museum which I would perhaps have called an Interpretation Centre as often happens in Spain because there's a lot of fascinating information but not really, except for the caves section, that many artefacts.

We found this museum extremely interesting, telling us about all its local history and development. The rooms are well set out with good disabled access offering ramps and lifts. Presented in English as well as Spanish, gave an insight to its industries and family life, also the caves of Nerja celebrating 60th anniversary.
An enjoyable couple of hours to retreat to for only €3.00 entrance for adults, €2.00 for pensioners. Worth a visit.

We got free entry when showing our ticket to the Nerja caves, which we’d visited two days before. It has a floor in the basement all about the caves and I’d def recommend doing both the caves and museum.
We arrived late in the day (it closed at 4pm that day) so we didn’t see 2 of the 5 floors.
Nice modern museum and good displays.

The museum is very interesting and gives loads of info about the history of Nerja. It's a modern building and very clean with easy access. Nice and fool if you need a break from the sun. It was good to find out about the caves and the TV programme, it explained too us about the names we saw in the park. Excellent value at €3 especially as it took almost 2 hours.
