“Quite nice for a small town”
Review of Museo del Jamon

Museo del Jamon
Ranked #3 of 23 things to do in Aracena
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The museum is free and located on the edge of town right near the high school. The people who work there were very helpful. If you are against meat, you wont like it, but ham is such a part of the culture and economy that it is unteresting to see how important the rausung and slaughter of pigs is to the people of the región.

Muchas gracias por mostrarnos su opinión. Desde el Museo del Jamón nos alegramos que disfrutara tanto de la visita como del trato con el personal.

El Museo del Jamón no es gratuito y la tarifa establecida para adultos es de 3.5€ existiendo otras más reducidas para personas mayores de 65 años y niños comprendidos entre 6 y 12 años, incluyendo la compra de la entrada una degustación de jamón ibérico de bellota. Para las personas que quieran visitar también la Gruta de las Maravillas de Aracena, existen unas tarifas combinadas para ambos recintos que son más económicas que realizar las compras por separado.

There is nothing especial to see, just some written informations and the visit was in spanish only. It brings nothing more than what we can read in a guided book.

Agree with other reviewers about lack of way for non-Spanish speakers to appreciate. Also, would be great to have option to tour a farm or talk to a farmer to actually see the pastures, learn about the diet of the pigs, the curing process. We did something similar in Belize with cacoa and spice farming, and it was amazing and a great way for the locals to participate in making

Muchas gracias por ofrecer su opinión. Es cierto que todo el contenido del Museo está en castellano, pero disponemos de guiones escritos en inglés, portugués, alemán y francés para todas las personas que lo necesiten. También tenemos la posibilidad de ver el audiovisual de la dehesa en inglés.
En cuanto a las visitas guiadas las podemos hacer en inglés, especialmente si no se trata de un grupo mixto.
Para disfrutar de la dehesa en vivo o poder visitar una bodega.... se está terminando de perfilar la Ruta del Jabugo, donde las personas que lo deseen podrán contratar diferentes paquetes y vivir aún más la experiencia del ibérico.

The Museo del Jamon is a rather small museum that gives insight into the production of Jamon Iberico. Our main issue was that all information (except for a little flyer) came in Spanish.

If you have a little time on your hands have look in here its the entire history of Iberico Jamon and all of the others too. Not a bad choice of town considering Aracena sells the best in Spain.
