  • The first thing that I like is that there is respect between fans and those who are not. In the Museum are not learn to fight or to know what is bullfighting. The death of Bull and Bullfighter and the tragedy that entails this art in the Goya painting, portraits, sculptures, taxidermy and utensils and dresses to fight perceived. It is very impressing to see costume soaked Manolete's blood (black by the time year 1947), with elements of the blood before such horrible trasfusion wound suffered. It was the death of a hero of the people and for the people. Much more recent 1985, dress of another hero in Madrid, José Cubero "Yiyo" who died with only 21 years in Colmenar VIejo to a bull that appears an antler buckled more than others and nonetheless was accurate with the heart of the right-handed. Interesting souvenir women toreras with their zillion garments, Juanita Cruz and Cristina Sánchez I liked... In short is a small museum, but you can see the immense 'truth' that is bullfighting that only the medical advance has avoided human deaths, since the animal is always sacrificed and the tragedy that is... Technology wifi or internet, is useless in front of a bull. Only the truth. Highly recommended although not be amateur (like my wife) but recognize the grandeur of power, if you want to put in front of a powerful animal.

  • This museum is attached to the bullring but is separate so you do not have to pay to go in but you do not get entry to the ring itself which you can do at a cost of Euro 12.90 however as there is no b...  more »
  • This tour really is a waste of time and money, not worth venturing too! The outside of the bullring is wonderful, but unless you are going to see an actual bullfight, then it really is not worth doing...  more »

  • Cool free experience on the literal art of bull fighting. Their is a room that shows Bull Fighting on a TV that goes on repeat which is interesting.
  • This is a really interesting museum and with the audio guides it teaches you a lot about bullfighting and the tradition surrounding it. We were however disappointed by the extortionate price of the photos they tried to sell us, note already printed and in a nice card. We really loved the photos but were not prepared to pay so much...then to realise they'd be thrown away anyway seemed ridiculous and a waste. If they were sold for cheaper, more people would buy them.
  • Its gives lot of information bull fighting and traditional information regarding it.
  • Cruel historic place. But a fascinating arhitecture. Beautiful building!
  • Interesting arena with live bull fights. Note: Skip this place if you abhor or can't stomach gore and violence.
