  • A mini Generalife, but this time ROUND. Very important not to lose this visit because it is critical to understand the history of Ronda.

  • The guy at the tourist information office suggested that we visit here as we only had an afternoon in Ronda and I think it was a good idea. The entrance fee is modest. The building is beautiful. As it...  more »

  • Our family enjoyed walking through the museum, it offers an amazing respite from people and heat of the day with plenty of picture perfect views. I love how I can read information without using Google translate, it must be tough to figure out what to prevent in a place rich with history but I do love they presented a little bit of everything!
  • This was quite disappointing. So much potential for the presentation of a large historical Ronda house... But instead the local government has made it into a poor quality museum of ancient history...the displays are limited with uninspiring lifesize displays of 'cavemen'!!! A wasted opportunity to show off this property.
  • A really interesting museum in which you can learn about the ancient history of Ronda, Malaga and the Iberian peninsula. There are a couple of interesting reconstructions of the old age, and there are some old items recovered from the areas around Ronda. However, the most interesting part of the museum is the written information about the civilizations that developed in the Iberian peninsula from the old age up to the start of the medieval ages. The way the information is structured and the examples provided are clear, instructive and very useful. This museum can clarify ancient techniques that are difficult to understand in other museums due to the lack of context. In my experience, it's been really clarifying.
  • The museum offers a very thorough presentation of the history of the area all the way from stone age. There are some lovely gardens with great views. The interior is very charming.
  • This is a museum depicting the anthropology of the area. It's a bit small, but gives you something to do while you are in the area.
