I had the luck visiting it during a special exhibition. But it is not for the faint of heart. It is just so heart breaking to see how how Sephardic Jews were treated. But it is part of history and there is no better way to be informed than visiting museums like this.

Too expensive for what you get to see, additionally a lot of the artefacts presented there have been proven to not be real or historically accurate but mere Victorian interpretations of what could have been, seriously needs much more serious professional research.

Educational and eerie. It shows you the ugly side of humanity that did (and still does) exist. They are not asking for much to enter, it was only €6 and they're are three floors and some things are outside too. Some really scary things are in there and there is a section dedicated to Jews regarding their hardships in Spain during the Inquisition.

Well, it was a very informative visit to a very Dark chapter and horror in the history of Spain and humanity. It costs 5 euros(4 euros if you are a student). I would not let kids under 14/16 enter though.

In the Jewish section a bunch of stuff on display, but little is explained about it or it's value. Some educational narrative exists, but not worth the money imo. There was also an inquisition section where most of the items were reproductions, but one can only read that many detailed torture descriptions before feeling nauseated, and imo the narrative should be more about the people not the devices.

Beautifully situated in Granada, a must for a visit if you are in the area. The exhibition I saw was magnificently curated, though the topic was horrific. Highly emotional visit.

Very good museum. Shocking horrible history of Spain. But the horror show is a great eye opener to modern issues. Lest we forget. Could have more history text I the rooms. Also the top floor has a nice view of Alhambra if you ignore the hangman's noose.

I gave it 5 stars but this is a very disturbing exhibition staged in a beautiful house on 3 floors. It shows man's inhumanity to man in the name of religion and power. It does try to explain the underlying philosophy of the period, to put the torture and death into perspective and almost tries to persuade us that it was understandable in that period. I don't believe that it is suitable to take young children here. We spent a considerable time, about 2 hours reading all of the descriptions which were written extremely well in both Spanish and English. We found it incongruous that 2 flamenco shows are staged in the evenings in the main hall of the house, adjacent to the exhibits. I suppose that the extreme torture inflicted on innocent people at the time of the Inquisition would have been carried out at the same time as others were enjoying themselves. However I'm afraid that the screams of the tortured would resonate louder than the loudest of flamenco singers.

We enjoyed an amazing flamenco show here. The venue is hidden away from most tourist routes and there audience was mostly local. Small space (25 seats) made for a very homie atmosphere and the artists were awesome. I recommend it to any visitor in Granada, just make sure to buy tickets online in advance.

Don’t go to the Inquisition exhibition, it’s all fake. Tourist trap.

Restaured old palace which hosts temporary exhibitions. It's got good views of Granada at the top. The flamenco show was very good but the chairs really uncomfortable
