Museo Lara, Ronda

4.4
#1 of 6 in Museums in Ronda
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Walking the streets of Ronda, we passed this hidden gem of a museum. It was near closing time, so we came back the following day and are very happy we did! Nothing in our tourist fliers mentioned it. ...  more »

  • This is such a wonderfully curated museum. Not sparse, not overcrowded. The selection of historical objects are excellent. Anyone with a curious mind or enjoys engineering, craftmanship, romanticism, science, military or the mystical will be happy here and almost all descriptions come with English translations. My dad (69yrs) and me (29yrs) had so much to talk about and learn from each other about the various parts. It was a great bonding experience. I wouldn't call this a place for kids or young families, but a relaxing, quiet, thought-provoking museum to visit for adults and young adults. You're free to take pictures, explore at your own pace and even climb upon the carriages for a picture of you like (even though we didn't partake)! Local context for the photographic and cinematographic exhibit was particularly wonderful. The entire building with the indoor courtyard was stunning. Can't praise this place enough - a very refreshing and tranquil experience that's tourist friendly without being expensive, over the top or pandering.
  • We had a little time to kill and thought we'd pop in to the Museum to see what was in there. I was very impressed with the volume of interesting things inside, it has a wide range of items from old cameras to pots and pans. It felt like a fun place to be and with the extra room at the back and the basement it was much larger than you think. Well worth the entry fee.
  • 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.
  • Very excellent broad collection for introduction into the 18-19 century.
  • One of my favorite museums, anywhere. Fun collections of all sorts. A fun place to spend an afternoon.
