“Bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The museum is not large by any means but is free to enter as part of your ticket to the Alhambra site. There are many small exhibits along with some larger ones, but descriptions were not always available in English therefore it was not possible to find out what they all were. No photography or video recording is allowed in this part. Many of the exhibits are of similar nature ie the mosaics and it will only take 30 minutes at the most to look around.

There are many interesting things in the museum, but I would have liked some information. There is very little in the way of explanation.

Not open on a Monday.

Not a huge place but have got some amazing artifacts such as old coins, pillars, chess boards, bowls, furniture etc. Well worth a visit

“Quick, worthwhile trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This 7-room museum does not have an admission fee and is a nice supplement to a visit to the Alhambra. It showcases some excellent examples of Muslim architecture in Spain. The explanations are mostly in Spanish, so without a Spanish speaker you might have trouble getting the full experience. That said, one can easily walk through the museum in fifteen minutes, so why not?
