Rafa Nadal Museum reviews
If you go to a Rafa museum, you expect the focus to be on him. Instead, we did a VR ski jump, & drove a F1 car. Lots of other sports & sportsmen/women but not obvious why. Lots of cups & old rackets..... more

Big tennis & Rafa fan. But from a tennis point of view the museum is very disappointing! Not much to see and most of it totally unrelated to tennis. Whole area of virtual reality video games...

As a Rafa fan I had to go to check out the museum. But really it’s fairly basic, more emphasis on the virtual machines which I had no interest in. I would have liked more info on Rafa’s early career but nice to see some trophies and memorabilia. Feel like the experience and museum could be sold separately otherwise 18 euros is expensive if you just want to see the ‘museum’
Despite knowing the tournaments Nadal has won in his career is still amazing to see the trophies together and think about all the effort and sacrifice must have taken to gather such a collection. However I found the exposition pretty basic. There could be some information about the tournaments, fun facts, etc. instead of just the trophies. Same with the borrowed stuff from other athletes. Also, on the ground floor there is a bunch of activities that didn't seem to be properly maintained. The F1 simulator was stuttering which make it unplayable, the VR headset I used had some inner foam falling off so it was quite uncomfortable and the game where you have to press the buttons when they light up, well, on the right side there was a button that didn't turn off unless you hit it very hard. For me these things weren't that important because I wanted to see the trophies and this was more an addition, but when you put all together the experience is quite disappointing.
