“Great way to spend a rainy afternoon in Granada”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised when we went inside this museum on a rainy afternoon. Very knowledgable English and Spanish-speaking guides available. If you like archaeology and are looking to see and learn more about locally-found pieces, this is a must-see! Even the house itself is a historical gem. Exhibits change every two months.
