Museums and private collections in the Alpujarras

Here we list the museums and private collections of the Alpujarras. As almost all of them are small, it is quite often recommendable to check opening hours with the town hall or private owner. Some museums have a reference in the website of the Asociación Desarollo Rural Alpujarra (ADR) which is a rich source of information about the Alpujarras.
