All you need to enter this wonderful sereene world of japaneese horticultural craftmanship is an open mind, a pair of feet or wheels and 4 €. The atmoshere is calm and the beauty and age of the bonsai are amazing. We had the whole place for ourself and loved it. Bonsai, wood, stone, water, light and shadow= magic. No wonder... More

A beautiful collection of Bonsai trees in beautiful surroundings. The oldest tree here was 500 years old. Located on the edge of old town. Whilst here also take the time to visit the little turtle lake under the white bridge.

The entrance fee is €4 per person. This is a small ‘museum’ of around two hundred and fifty exhibits of bonsai – miniature trees kept small by pruning – in an outside garden and three rooms. Outside there are numerous bonsai trees viewed from a walkway with a central water feature with Japanese-style rocks. The bonsai trees are from different... More

Situated in a park to the side of Old town. If you like Bonsai trees there are plenty here some centuries old. Pretty big display some inside but some outside in the middle. Only open certain hours and very quiet in January when we were there. Only a few euros to get in.

This museum in a pleasant park near the old centre of Marbella will not be visited by many people at the same time. There is plenty of space and time to observe and study this kind of "art with nature", also to literally fall in love with many of the exhibited bonsai. On a sunny day, Sunday is excellent to...

Went here with my boyfriend last summer and absolutely loved it. It is a bit hidden, and we found it by surprise. We decided to go in and take a look. Costs 5 euro per person, as I remember it. Cute place with many Bonsai trees. The turtles swimming around the museum are adorable. Minus for the let down in... More

If you are interested in Bonzai trees, its a fascinating little place. It took me less than 10 min to walk around it but if you are a fan, that's the place of 120 years old Bonsai trees.

The location given in the app is wrong, you need to walk alongside the park till its end then you will find the museum at its center. Unfortunately it was closed and we couldn't enter even though it wasn't stated that it is closed when we checked. Anyway, we had a great fun walking alongside the pond and trees.

Third visit here. A little pilgrimage to see if the trees have grown any! Seriously, this is a dear little museum offering an oasis of calm. Only a ten minute stroll from Orange Square and only 4 euros to go in. Bonsai enthusiast or just curious it's worth a visit. It only needs half an hour of your time and... More
