“Good collection but overpriced”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

The museum is right outside the entry gate to the Alhambra. It had many pretty artifacts but I found most of them overpriced.I most bought some magnets.

“Great Place to visit”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

A huge place, you need at least 6hours to see all the attractions and museum in Alhambra. It will be better if you buy the night ticket to Nasrid Palace and come again the next day to enjoy the other areas, so you wont exhaust it. The ornaments in Nasrid Palace is faboulous, great arts. and also huge garden. You can see the Albaychin from the top of the hill, a great fort, and a little bit snowy mountain on the far away when you get out from the fort. I'm lucky I can find colorful roses in the garden when I came on late of May, even a bit hot. The fee is worth to pay with such a great, fab, excellent views.

“Andalusian Artifacts”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

The museum takes up one corner of the Palace of Charles V and contains the best collection of Spanish-Moorish Art in general and of Nasrid Art in particular that you will find in one showing. The artifacts represent items used within Alhambra from slightly before 1500. Alhambra is such a fantastic experience, every visitor should take the time to see the artifacts in this museum so the realities of the royal life can find a place in the experience, as well.

“Incredible Collection of artifacts”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

This was included in the one-price ticket and definitely worth a visit as they have a lot of the original pieces you see throughout the rest of the complex.

“good complement”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

As I noted in an earlier review, there are some very good collections that help explain the context of the Alhambra. Upstairs are painting collections--less important than the downstairs exhibits
