The museum is the private collection of Juan Antonio Lara Jurado who has been a collector since the age of 10. Now in his 70s, he still lives above the museum, but his living space is set to shrink as he wants to expand still further. You name it, it is here: priceless, historic collections of clocks, weapons, radios, gramophones, sewing machines, telephones, opera glasses, Spanish fans, scales, cameras and far, far more.

There is an impressive archaeological section, plus a grisly exhibit on the Inquisition with various torture apparatus, including head crushers and stocks. Then there is the witchcraft room, which kids, in particular, will love. Think pickled toads and the like.
