We really enjoyed the hour or so we spent here. The tours only run a few times each day but you can find out and reserve on their website easily. Shop is open longer hours but would recommend the tour for ok not 6 euros. Takes about an hour -all in Spanish but if you don't speak Spanish don't worry as most of it is visual. Best bit was the live tuna "butchering" demo (not for the squeamish) at the end which was brilliant. Then the tuna/fish tapas and beer to finish. Great value for money. Shame the range of (non food) souvenirs was so poor as we would have bought more - they are missing a trick. Nice how it felt quite authentic and not too polished though. No photos allowed inside actual museum.

...and unfortunately, this information is not displayed anywhere (not on website, not here on TA). It is only the shop which is open, but museum is closed.

We never knew that there are so many cuts and quality of tuna. This is the red tuna, specific to this part of Spain, where it is caught and processed. The tour is very interesting and educational, in that it gives you the history of tuna fishing as well as a live demonstration of the art of filleting a tuna, and see the various "cuts". It is not a "slick" tour, and the folksy nature of it was an added bonus. Our guide spoke “spanglish” but even without understanding every word, the visual displays are sufficient to understand what is going on. At the end you get a "tuna tasting' of some of these various parts of the tuna, with a beer. Well worth the 5 Euro cost.

found this to be a really neat place to visit. the first room is made up to imagine you are a tuna getting caught in a net. The guide explains everything in Spanish, which would be the only downside for unilingual english speakers. Nevertheless, you could still get the general gist of things. The amazing part was seeing a live demonstration of carving up a tuna, showing which parts are used for consumption. After the tour, visitors are given a plate of tapas with 5 different styles of tuna, plus a soft drink or beer of choice. Well worth the 5€ admission

Interesting place see live fish and crabs and you can buy atun [which is tuna] at the museum. This is the locally caught fish of Barbate Spain.
