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...

How did one of the worlds finest collections of bonsai specimens end up in Spain? Tranquil setting, awesome display of exceptional bonsai examples in Marbella🌲. Highly recommended!

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

A small, but interesting little piece of horticultural history which transports you to another world.

I visited on a whim with my family after coming across the museum within a pretty park after wondering through the old town. The entrance fee wasn't very much, I recall it being about €4 each and was pleasantly surprised by the collection they had. I wouldn't say I'm a bonsai tree enthusiast particularly, but I must say that actually... More
