Owner description: The Flamenco Dance Museum in Seville is the principal reference of the Andalusian cultural heritage, which makes understand and feel the union between culture and flamenco art, it is considered therefore as the temple of the Andalusian flamenco culture. The fusions the tradition of flamenco art with high technology and becomes the main entrance portal for the emotional understanding of this expression of Andalusian identity. A simple must for the cultural tourist.

“Atmospheric show”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We booked ahead at our hotel for the 5pm show on the Saturday evening, paying slightly extra for the museum itself. The museum situated in the Barrio Santa Cruz in an 18th century building has some interesting audio-visual displays. We were advised by the receptionist to choose our seats early and we obtained excellent seats on the front row facing the small stage. We were then treated to some skilled atmospheric flamenco dancing. The two dancers (one male, one female) danced both separately and together, accompanied by a fine flamenco guitarist and a female singer. I think flamenco singing is an acquired taste and I haven't acquired it, so I concentrated on the dancing and the guitar music. The show lasted about an hour and was very warmly received by the enthusiastic audience.

“Must do in Seville”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

If you are interested to watch a good flamenco show this is a 'must do'. Cheaper than many of the others and we did go to another one too. It's a smaller setting and doesn't have the distraction of waiters moving around during the show. The museum is a litte disappointing but the show is great. Go early and you can get seats close to the stage.

“Fantastic Performance”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Loved it. I would definitely recommend for the performance. The museum is not as exciting and some of the pictures seem a bit old but does provide a little insight to someone with no knowledge of Flamenco. But the performers were fantastic. So passionate and intense. There were different session times and our session was full but it was still intimate and nobody was far from the stage. The price was very reasonable too.

“Intimate/Fun Show”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This is a small venue, so it makes watching a flamenco show a lot more intimate and special. You sit so close to the stage, and the show was incredible. A lot cheaper than other advertised shows as well. Truly enjoyed this experience!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I went here hoping for a great display on the history of flamenco. The museum was generally very dark. Most of the clips seemed to be from the 1970s. There wasn't as much information as I'd hoped and I came away without learning as much as I'd hoped.
