We thought the museum was very well run and the exhibits were all clearly labelled in Spanish as well as in English.

Really well done mini museum, and the staff were very welcoming, even opening the shop during their lunch break so we could buy some cheese! Lots of interesting facts, and the cafe is very pleasant as well, easily a good spot for lunch.

A great little museum and worth a visit, but you should charge another €1.50 and provide some cheese to taste. Then you would sell loads of it in the shop.More
