We popped in here on Sunday during the free entry period after we visited the Corral de Comedias Theatre.

The museum is a modern museum inside an old building which works through the ages of history of theatre in spain from its earliest periods (roman) to modern day. Start on the ground floor and work up to the top floor to following the exhibits in order.

The upper floor of the old cloisters has some interesting recreations of old sound effects machines that you can try yourself to generate wind, rain, thunder effects. There are also a few old displays of wave and scene changing mechanisms.

There are information cards in English available at the start of each room.

We spent about 45 minutes here in total.

The museum is meant to close at 6:30, we arrived at 6:03 and got told that we couldn't go in because it was past 6 o'clock and they have to close. I think this is just indolent people who didn't want to work, a bit shameful to be honest!

When we were here, there was a display of costumes from various theatrical pieces.
Most part inspired by Cervantes.
Nicely laid out and lavish.
For those interested in theater well worth spending time

We expected to have a quick look, as we travelled with our 1 year baby, and finally stayed there for 3 hours. We all loved it, including the baby. Very nice dresses, videos with fragments of plays, interesting documents around the creation of some plays,... and the best for me was the visit of the tools to imitate the sounds of nature before recording was brought to theatre.

This is the only surviving example of a Spanish open air theatre from the “Golden Age.” The tour costs a mere €3 which is a bargain. You get an audio wand and are free to wander what in England we would call the stalls and the circle and upper circle. In this theatre they all had different names and different purposes. This fascinating introduction to the world of medieval touring players lasts I guess about 35 minutes or so. The commentary is clear, the English impeccable, the information absorbing. If I have one regret it was being unable to buy a book, in English, on the subject. While we tourists were wondering about taking our photos, a small band of actors were in the early stages of, in seemed to me, blocking a play. Blocking is the process of working out where characters enter and leave and where they go and what they do in between.

Highly recommended if you any interest in the subject.

The information cards in each room were brief but gives you enough information to understand the history of theatre.
These cards are available in Spanish or English, so it is great.

Quite interesting displays. A couple of euros entry charge. Not very big so doesn't take long to get around. There didn't seem to be many visitors, although they seem to get some parties of students going around.
