Spent 8€ to join a large, crowded tour. When the audio guides worked [mine did not and, by the third, handset I just gave up and walked around] they were confusing. Besides the ring, there really isn't much interesting to see except some Goya etchings...More

While I find the sport/art of bullfighting disturbing for all kinds of reasons, this museum whose purpose is to glorify it as art and practice is an extremely well-organized and curated ode to the art. Paintings, sculpture, sparkly matadors' tight pants and short jackets, all...More

Whatever your viewpoint on bullfighting you should still come and see the Museo Taurino for sure. Some amazing and jaw-dropping sights! A fascinating experience and interesting history too.

I'm not sure whether the museum have changed their arrangements, but we did the tour on 27th Sep and were given an audio handset to listen to as we went round. This worked quite well when compared to previous reviewers comments about a guide talking...More

My review of the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza touched on this a little, but the museum and guided tour is something I would recommend. The tour takes about an hour or an hour and a half and the guide explains everything in Spanish,...More

Their website should be more helpful than my summer memory but we arrived late morning / early afternoon and there was no problem in buying tickets for the tour. Certainly worth visiting and highly recommended
