We visited the museum on a rainy day in Colemnar. It's quite small, but quite interesting. We may have only spent €2 on the entry fee but we spent over €11 on honey products that claim to cure everything!

I thought I knew quite a lot about bees but I learned tons here. Good for kids to learn too, and help them overcome their view of bees as just stinging insects. Also explains all the different types of honey, and lets you taste them.

A lot of thought has been put in to this museum that is primarily focussed on educating children about the honey bee. That said, it would be a tragedy for someone to visit Colmenar when the museum is open without stepping inside.

this museum is a must visit for visitors to our village, gives the history of the original name {Colmena} meaning beehive, and the history of the making of our beautiful honey.

Small village museum about honey making with the opportunity to buy honey. Located in the centre of the village but on a very narrow street so park on one of the wider streets.
