Although small in size, the museum offers an excellent introduction to the caves that surround it and how folks live in them. It is also a superb example of current using audiovisual aids to make the exhibits more interesting and informative.

A pleasant way to get the old style living of a cave dweller in the 1920,s.A short visit but but pleasant after a stroll up to the cave area in the winter synshine.

Nice little museum that explains quite well the inner workings of troglodytes. The lady in charge was also very helpful and fluent in English. Definitely worth a tour before you go and visit more recent troglodytes.

This centre will help you appreciate and understand a little more the area and its history. The video in the museum (often these are boring) is actually informative and enlightening, and the exhibits are engaging.

A simple but effective small centre that really brings the history of Guadix to life. It is also worth taking the time to walk around the surrounding area to appreciate the local 'cave life'.
