This museum was just kinda weird- for the lack of a better word. Apparently it used to be about Sephardic Jews. There are still a few rooms about them. Yet there is almost no information given so unless you already know a lot about Jewish...More

We were eager to see a museum that tells the history of the Jews of Granada and specifically of those forced to convert to Christianity but continued to follow Judaism in secret. We were very disappointed. Most of the limited space is devoted currently to...More

We wandering the area and came across this small museum. The first floors were dedicated to information on the inquisition while other floors feature Jewish traditions and culture. Very interesting and emotional to see relics from the 700’s.

If you have a morbid fascination in torture and pain then this is the place for you. The museum tells you very little about Jewish life in Granada, and gives you the impression that the designers knew very little about it. The few explanations provided...More

This museum is worth a stop to better understand the Inquisition and see replicas of torture instruments. Each instrument is accompanied by English/Spanish description which really helps to understand how they were used. This is an interesting secondary attraction in Granada if you need to...More

Intriguing (and imperfect) combination of a museum on torture and Sephardic culture. Could be curated better, and the Sephardic section expanded, but an interesting and unexpected find - worth a stop.

Sounded interesting, who isn't interested in torture? A place with replica and some original items of torture supposedly used during the inquisition. Some you would have seen in movies and some rather ingenious items. Plenty of explanatory notices in English which makes life easy. Inside...More

Very interesting couple of hours spent here. It is mostly a museum with torture instruments but there is also a section on Jewish history (the items need more detail though) and a general overview of the Inquisition in Spain. Very interesting and good value for...More

This 15th century palace near Plaza Santa Anna is home to superbly made full size models of instruments of torture used in the Inquisition as well as some original pieces. It's really quite gruesome reading the way these clamps, spikes, racks and whips were used,...More

This is an interesting museum, very badly laid out. It starts off with a floor of torture instruments with some great interps on each item (although a proof-read on the English panels wouldn't have gone astray), followed by a section with Jewish (mostly religious) items...More
