not a large museum and many of the items were only reproductions although the actual history and stories of the bandits were interesting. If you are passing drop in but not worth going out of your way to visit it.

Not stuffy and a lot of fun. Lots of English explanations. After Napoleon upset the local balance of power the bad guys seemed to have filled it perfectly. Lots of pictures some quite grizzly. Recommend.

The bandit culture in Spain is quite legion. This tiny museum is decrepit and richly authentic. I loved the collection of bade rollers graphic novels. And the period photos of convicted badits

Kids enjoyed browsing this eclectic museum of Spanish history. We went in for something to do but it's not something you need to see in a hurry.

Don't bother with this one! For your money you get pictures and names of historical local bandits, a disordered collection of arms, guns and knives, a couple of costumes, and ... the inevitable shop, selling tourist junk. A complete waste of time and money.
