Lots of information in Spanish, French, English and German. Many old pictures, documents, clothes, arms, etc. Also old comic books and old black and white movies in which the lifes of the bandits are described as being very romantic. That's exactly where I got mixed feelings about the things I saw, as not all bandits are Robin Hoods. Of course... More

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.

Very informative look at the history and current state of bull fighting. We were able to visit the actual ring (66 meters in width) and where the animals are maintained, including the horses. Not a fan of the sport, but still found the museum and tour guide very interesting and worth the visit.

We chanced upon this small museum in Ronda on the way up to the old part of town. What a lovely surprise it was. It is a legacy of the Andalucian bandits who were notorious in Europe. The Serrania de Ronda, that is the mountains of Ronda, were one of the many reclusive shelters for these outlaws. From the gorges... More

It has way to much written information to take in, but it nonetheless imparts a great sense of romantic atmosphere regarding the Bandoleros. I knew nothing about them beforehand, but now I want to be one. Great place to kill an hour and a half if the weather's not to great.

Located near the town centre is unique in this type of information. Photos, videos and souvenir are available at reasonable prices. In the entrance you can take a photo with a Bandolero poster

This place is only two euros entrance fee and that is about right,newspaper clippings,posters and paintings depict the bandits of the region.There are some guns and knives to look at,but that's about it.

I suggest buying the combined museum tickets (which includes 4 others) at the tourist office. The museum is very small and you have to read a lot. Everything is translated into English, but some of the translations are a bit dodgy. If you have no interest in bandits, just skip it.

On our third and last day in Ronda, we visited this museum. We have rarely seen such a huge collection of exhibits in one place! If you accept the romantic ideal of the highwayman or bandit, you can understand why there is such a fascination with the bandoleros. It was helpful that the explanations of the various exhibits were translated... More
