  • This new museum occupies a former convent. Multi-media and contains at least three interior courtyards. The first courtyard is surrounded by displays explaining Granada's religious festivals in Spanis...  more »
  • The Museum was renovated recently. The scenography of the exhibits is modern and very interesting. No room should be overlooked. The final parts monumental pre Colombian is beautiful. From the bottom of the courtyard, which covers these pieces, beautiful view over the roofs of Granada and the Cathedral. One word: perfect!

  • It is good if they ask for a guide is free, they know a lot and give you a very exciting to that Museum touch because if you do that on its own it is not very exciting
