If you know your stories from the religious works you will have more interest, great detail by the various artists. Around the corner from the Cathedral, small footprint on street, 3 or 4 rooms.

Spent a long time looking for it. Would be very helpful if this information was available for everyone. The notice on the door gave no information when it closed, or when it would reopen. None of the people who helped me find it knew ot was closed.

This museum features the typical Belen or Creche which adorns nearly all households in Spain during the Christmas Season. You can admire the small statues of religious content and the idealization of the times when Christ was born.

We loved this museum, it is unusual and thought provoking. Small but very nicely laid out and lit. An amazing array of different styles of nativity. We loved looking at all the models of characters and animals, and at the really atmospheric scenery.
