Overview

This Museum is located in a manor house dated in the seventeenth century. It has an area dedicated to the manchego cheese as well as to the pastoral tradition in the town. The second area is dedicated to Art, with interesting exhibitions. Also available a "tasting room" where we can learn to recognise and taste a genuine manchego cheese with designation of origin.

This museum is tastefully appointed and the art work lovely. The history is interesting and films well done. Unfortunately I do not speak Spanish and it would have been nice to have sub titles available or tapes. Thank you for a lovely experience

It is not just a cheese museum, but a cultural experience. The cheese exhibits are interesting (better if you can read the Spanish descriptions [the English descriptions are limited]), but the art displays are nice, and don't forget to pay attention to the stately residence...More
