Step into a grim reality of Museo Lara and see the diverse collection of curiosities of Juan Antonio Lara Jury. Starting with a large collection of watches on the main floor, stroll through the halls of the museum to see old sewing machines and typewriters next to handguns and microscopes. Descend into the basement to experience the truly unique part of the museum--the exhibition of witchcraft and the Spanish Inquisition's sinister torture devices, including a stretching rack with a display mannequins. Gaze at immitation dragons, life-sized mermaids, and werewolf taxidermy, part fo the monstrous experience.

  • As it says in the Title ...Just go. There is no need to describe the museum it definitely speaks for its self and worth the 4 euros it costs per person Take a camera! 
  • On the ground floor there is section that outraged me, and was of archaeology. They had (as authentic) Romans and Greek objects, and among them there were two wolves Gaggle that Museum Lara claims that they are from the 5th century B.c., a nearly exact copies in miniature of the Wolf is in the Capitoline museums in Rome, and that turns out to be a medieval sculpture (with Romulus and Remus added in the Renaissance), with which hard these pieces could be authentic. From what I know, the first representation of the she-Wolf lactating the twins is 295 BC and previously represented only with the Wolf (not Romulus and Remus) so if these parts were genuine, they would be invaluable in all aspects, and certainly would not be in that Museum. Perhaps I was wrong, but consider that is a scam and a deception, and until a mockery. On the other hand, do collections private of treasures archaeological (real) is punishable with fines serious by expolio, by which, or you gave those parts for its Museum (things that I doubt, but could be), or the acquired in the market black, or, simply, are false and not it indicate as such, so would be a scam. As private collection of someone who is not an aristocrat or a billionaire seems very worthy, that if, if the rest are genuine parts, thing that it is normal for that dude. It has a variety of striking and picturesque, items such as sewing machines, steam, watches, machinery, etc. Are objects of antiquarian that according to read, arrived to buy even at the trace from Madrid. I liked the weapons.

  • Very cool private collection. Get there early in the morning and the owner is there to chat about what he's collected over the years. This place was far larger than it seems and the variation of his pieces is impressive.
  • One of my favorite museums, anywhere. Fun collections of all sorts. A fun place to spend an afternoon.
  • A museum that is recommended by the variety of recreations of bandits, witchcraft, 18th and 19th century torture devices... also very full time film protectors exhibition... Good price, costs 2 euros.
