This museum is ok, but very simple. It doren’t go into great detail, there aren’t many collection guitars to see and it is very small.

I called in because it was the Day of the Museum in Spain and hence free entry. Nice modern building and of some interest but glad I didn't have to pay. Not that much to see and couldn't really recommend it to non guitar lovers,

This cost three Euros and can be done in less than half an hour. Guitar enthusiasts may find it interesting as Torres was responsible for the shape of the modern guitar. it is nicely presented, but not a must see attraction.

The museam is really nice and not so big. The entrance is 3 euros/person. It was interesting! You have also an area where you can play some chords on the guitar.

Cheap entry. Was interesting to learn about something different. You get the chance to have a little play on a couple guitars too. Even if guitars aren't your thing, the displays are very beautiful.

One can walk through this museum in less than 10 minutes. Really not worth it. Take in another site unless you are desperate. Quite disappointing.

I noted some critical reviews here complaining that this museum was only suitable for specialists. You don't have to be a guitar maker or player to enjoy it but why would you visit if you had no interest in the guitar? I thought the exhibits...More
