There is a gift store prior to entering, but didn't find items for sale that interesting...couldn't find anything i "had" to have. However, once inside, there was quite a bit of information and display items... More

The bandit culture in Spain is quite legion. This tiny museum is decrepit and richly authentic. I loved the collection of bade rollers graphic novels. And the period photos of convicted badits

Kids enjoyed browsing this eclectic museum of Spanish history. We went in for something to do but it's not something you need to see in a hurry.

Lots of information in Spanish, French, English and German. Many old pictures, documents, clothes, arms, etc. Also old comic books and old black and white movies in which the lifes of the bandits are described as being very romantic. That's exactly where I got mixed feelings about the things I saw, as not all bandits are Robin Hoods. Of course... More

Don't bother with this one! For your money you get pictures and names of historical local bandits, a disordered collection of arms, guns and knives, a couple of costumes, and ... the inevitable shop, selling tourist junk. A complete waste of time and money.

Very informative look at the history and current state of bull fighting. We were able to visit the actual ring (66 meters in width) and where the animals are maintained, including the horses. Not a fan of the sport, but still found the museum and tour guide very interesting and worth the visit.

We chanced upon this small museum in Ronda on the way up to the old part of town. What a lovely surprise it was. It is a legacy of the Andalucian bandits who were notorious in Europe. The Serrania de Ronda, that is the mountains of Ronda, were one of the many reclusive shelters for these outlaws. From the gorges... More

It has way to much written information to take in, but it nonetheless imparts a great sense of romantic atmosphere regarding the Bandoleros. I knew nothing about them beforehand, but now I want to be one. Great place to kill an hour and a half if the weather's not to great.
