Just OK museum!

Interesting enough! You got to taste the goods at the end! If you missed it, wouldn't really matter, plenty other things to do!

We visited the caves (which are excellent, unmissable) and the ticket was only €3 more to include the castle, dull, and the Museum of ham). On the plus side, staff were very helpful and friendly and as everything is in Spanish gave us 2 pages of English explanations and also ran the intro video in English for just 2 of... More

The museum it's OK. It explains what is the Dehesa, the place were the pigs used to make jamon are raised and maintained and how the jamon is produced. At the end you have a taste of the jamon available at the museum if you want to buy it. It's really good. Everything was explained perfectly by our guide that... More

We almost all are interested in what we are eating nowadays. So that's the way to discover the Excellent Jamón Iberico. The characteristics of the Iberian Pig = Pata Negra. Their history-The food -the pastures- the climat-slaughter- and how to cut the ham. How to recognize the label of the Pata Negra. Very interesting for our nutrition.

First thing to say - and I'm not the first to say it - is that no effort has been made here to consider non-Spanish speakers at this cultural centre. The great Jamon now reaches more British dinner tables than ever, so it's odd to think that the federated producers - or at least the Min Ag/Food/Trade folk - haven't... More

When I did the tour I was informed that the DVD would start showing, and then I must move to another room to watch another DVD. Then i walked around myself unguided to try and learn what... More

The museum is quite small. At the beginning there is a small movie which you watch (on request!) in English.

The caves cost 8.5 euros and a combined ticket 10.5 euros. At the Museo del Jamon you get a small taster of jamon so if you view it as your paying 2e for the jamon everything else is a bonus! As we don't speak Spanish, the guide put on an English video prior to the next official tour starting. She... More

It's a small museum, but it's interesting - as long as, of course, you like your ham and want to know more about the pig, the country side and the local tradition.

We are seasoned travellers in Spain and know our Spanish food very well. This place therefore really appealed to us and the staff were very friendly and useful. If you're not a little obsessed with Spanish ham and culture though, it's probably not the most exciting place, but worth the ticket combined with the Gruta de las Maravillas!
