“A Very Good Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

The Museo Caja Granada Memoria de Andalucía is a museum that does not get many visitors, but it is a very good museum that has plenty of information about the history of Granada and Andalucía. There are many displays that explain geography and history. There was one exhibit that showed how they made the plaster casts to decorate the Alhambra.

“March 2014, worth the walk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

This is a fascinating 5 year old interactive history of Andalucía, somewhat oddly arranged in that it is 4 galleries each arranged as a hands on pictorial exhibition with a written history in parallel. Interesting both for adults and children... very underused ... with an art gallery on the second floor in a rather lovely building. The Collection is nothing special but has a few nice pieces all with local context, while the temporary exhibition was an excellent exhibition of Picasso drawings and lithographs at the time of visit, but only open 12 -2pm!!! Though there is both a restaurant and a café neither were open!

“All you ever wanted to know about Andalucia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

This isn't really a museum - it's a place where you can touch and feel and experience the wonderful tradition and history that is Andalucia. Be it architecture, poetry, agriculture, plants, animals - it's all there. There are drawers you call pull out, knobs you can press and sounds you can hear - a multimedia experience (also in English!) that will do anything but bore you. Great for people of any age and children will love it.

“Fabulous discovery”

This is an excellent, in depth look at Andalucia past and present. It is appropriate for all Ages and all the explanations are translated into English. A must see and visit!,

“Real hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

I've been coming to Granada for years but yesterday was my first visit to this treasure store. Beautiful, cool (on a scorchio day), and full of amazing info so well organised that your head won't hurt afterwards! Took my 2 yr old grandchild who loved it too because there things to touch, open etc. Will definitely go again - with and without little children.
