Numerous historic and religious pieces laid out sympathetically, different rooms with different themes. In the final room, beyond the exit, there are newer pieces to enjoy

It is quite a small museum but it is free and worth a visit as it will be a good 20 minutes spent. Not everything is translated into english but the staff are very friendly and happy to translate.

It's a decent and free museum. Collection consists of some coins, doors and fountains. There is no English explanations for items.

With the grand Alhambra around, this museum does not provide much to see. Of course there are some interesting exhibits.

The place to spend your time is at the Palace. The museum has some interesting pieces but unfortunately for it the rest of the site out shines it.

Free to enter what is a fairly small exhibition. The staff were really helpful and we found the pieces and explanations really interesting!
