The Museum of Curiosity is very interesting and only takes about 30 minutes of your time. We walked between floors but there is a lift available.

Went on the way round the city, some of the things inside are unbelievable, very well laid out and definitely worth a look

Slightly odd, but intriguing nonetheless. Reasonable value if using the resident discount card from your hotel. The are English explanations for each of the exhibits and it is kind of interesting in a bizarre sort of way. OK to visit for 30 minutes or so to break up the monotony of shopping and hill climbing.

This museum is pretty small and has a strange collection of items. Spread over 3 floors it has a Ripley 's Believe It or Not" feel (on a small scale) and seems like something you would find at Niagra Falls. The normal entrance fee is 7 euros (not really worth it) but if are staying in a hotel in San... More

Lots of odd things form history and strange things people have done over the years. Worth a visit for the education.

I enjoyed my time in this museum. It was very interesting. We gathered a lot of information about various things. Though I have been there about three years ago so this review is a little old, but being published now.

After a terrible experience in the Vampire and Werewolf Museum I was expecting this one to be similarly awful. To my surprise it was actually quite good and I found the content really interesting. The signs are in a few different languages and whilst the English is sometimes a bit sketchy it is enough for you to know what you're... More

Sometimes interesting things to see, but museum seems to be stopped in 70s/80s. Thats how it looks now. Would be nice, to see more "new" curiosities.

As soon as you approach the fat man sculpture near the entrance, a lady jumps on you to oonvince you to visit this inferior copy of "Ripley believe it or not" museum chain. Of course it is hard to say no to her as she has a strong personality. At least, "Ripley believe it or not" is well displayed and... More
