“Very Good Museum”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Alhambra Museum is a very good museum. One of the prime exhibits is the very large Vase of the Gazelles in the museum, which depicts gazelles. This has a golden sheen and was made by the Moors in Malaga in the 14th or 15th century. These large vases were shipped from Malaga all over the Mediterranean and were used to decorate palaces. The Vase of the Gazelles is one of only eight that are still in existence in the world, so it is extremely valuable. It is also the most beautiful.

This museum also holds very good exhibitions. In the past we have seen exhibitions of Washington Irving’s life and another of Matisse.

What was present was informative and interesting, but there was not a lot there to my way of thinking.

“Breath taking!”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

There isn't much more to say. The views were amazing as you can see all the city and shows the grandeur of the design.

The palaces were beautiful, especially Nasrid Palaces.

Well worth it!

“Full of mystery - on every visit”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

The Alhambra is beautiful and takes up most of the day to appreciate its beauty and history.
Dont forget your walking shoes and water - although there are places to buy water and ice-cream. On our second visit we were with a couple and their 15 year old twins and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. If you have young children i would definitely recommend a buggy.
