Overview



Inaugurated in 1929, here you can see paintings from the 17th-19th centuries, Baroque sculpture from Granada, Fajalauza ceramics, traditional textiles and a collection of 19th century furniture. The collection includes outstanding drawings, watercolours, engravings, lithographs, and a collection of photographs of the city and its monuments. The museum also has a newspaper archive and a library specialising in Granada-related subjects, where visitors will find documents by Baltasar Martínez Durán, Francisco de Paula-Valladar Serrano and Antonio Gallego Burín, amongst others.

The most interesting rooms in the museum are the ones dedicated to romantic travellers, the figure of Washington Irving, the industrial arts room, and the one on the world of gypsies.
